Paint Scrape Your Way To Beautiful DIY Colorful Coasters


We had some white tiles from The Home Depot just sitting in our garage collecting dust. With some acrylic paint and a scraping tool, aka old credit card, they got a colorful makeover! Now, summer needs to get here so we can put some tropical drinks on our new DIY coasters. Details on how to make these paint scrape beauties are below. They are super easy, and who can resist all that happy color?!



  • 4×4 white tile, square and hexagon shaped, Home Depot
  • Acrylic paint, Martha Stewart or Plaid Crafts
  • Scraping tool, or straight edge like an old credit card  (and wet and dry paper towel to wipe off)
  • Sealant
  • Cork
  • Gorilla Glue
  • Silhouette Cameo


Step 1: Squeeze dabs of paint on to the coaster. For the blue coaster, dab blue and white paint scattered all over it. For the pink, yellow and blue coasters, stagger the dabs of paint along a line 1/4 way down the coaster. You can experiment with a lot of fun colors here!

Step 2: For the pink, yellow and blue coasters, place the straight edge above the dabs of paint, and begin to pull down, scraping the colors of paint with it. Once you pull all the paint to the bottom of the coaster, wipe off the paint and scrape another coaster. For the blue coasters fully covered in paint, use the straight edge to pull the paint down, then you can start on another edge of the coaster, and scrape again in another direction with the paint you previously scraped (still on the straight edge).

Step 3: Let the coasters dry overnight. Find vinyl letters, or use a Silhouette Cameo to cut white vinyl letters to add fun sayings. We added, Sip, Sip, Yay. I’ve Got Spirits Yes I Do. Drinks On Me. Cheers. 


Step 4: Once dry, seal with a waterproof sealant.

Step 4: Trace the coasters, and cut inside the line so the cork is slightly smaller than the coaster. Follow the instructions of Gorilla Glue and glue the cork to the bottom of the coasters.
