Hi there Creative readers! We are back today to share a modern project, something a bit out of the norm to us as we typically lean towards a shabby farmhouse style. Since color block is all the rage right now though, we thought we’d try our hand at it with our painted modern color block coasters:

Modern Colorblock Cork Coasters

While Christmas shopping at Joann, I spied a pack of 4×4″ cork coasters for only $1.99 and knew I needed to spruce these up!

Using Martha Stewart’s silver and brass liquid gilding + painters tape, we turned these standard cork pieces to modern coasters in no time at all!

Supplies to make cute modern painted cork coasters

  1. Tape off designs. (Stripes, Herringbone, Polka Dots and Side stripe.)
  2. Brush on gilding.
  3. Embellish with bright acrylic paints in modern colors.
