For those of you that are one with the Pinterest world [no worries, I, too, am one of those people] you might have seen this popular idea flying around the boards:

DIY Coasters!

[via Lee La La blog with tutorial!]

I love this DIY project for the following reasons:

1. It’s easy

2. It’s affordable

3. It’s creative & customizable

4. It could totally work as a DIY wedding gift, bridal shower favor, bridal party gift, wedding favor … and probably more.

The DIY coasters would also make a great housewarming gift. I know this personally, because my coworker made me some [using the Pinterest posts you see here] using pages from Harry Potter!!!! They are quite possibly my favorite thing ever to put a glass on and I just love seeing them on my coffee table! Pages from a favorite book, wedding pictures, wall paper, wrapping paper … the possibilities to create custom DIY coasters, really are endless.

Now check out what some of our friends from Pinterest made for some great inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
