DIY Marble Coasters

I have been meaning to do this project for a while now. I have loved these hexagon marble tiles since I saw them on The Block last year. Now I can use them in my home as coasters. These coasters work out to be around $3 each... bargain!

WHAT YOU NEED:
Sheet of 110mm Hexagon Tiles (I got mine from HERE - in honed)
Sheet of Adhesive Felt (I got mine from Spotlight)
Scissors
Step 1: Remove each tile from the mesh backing
Step 2: You can see all the edges are rough from the glue used to stick to mesh. I cut mine back with scissors but then all used a sanding block to smooth the edges some more.
Step 3: Cut the adhesive felt into rectangles and attach to the back of each tile
And now your have gorgeous marble coasters to use in your home!

I bought some of these tiles last week, but am waiting for them to arrive. I love how simple this is.

What a fantastic DIY project. I'm definitely putting this one on the school holiday agenda. We are always looking for coasters.

I'm laughing to myself because that looks so simple and in the shops you'd pay a fortune for them.

At first I thought you were going to cut the tile with scissors, good luck! Then I realised they were already cut in that shape. This is so clever!

I love this. I actually chose those tiles for our powder room splashback but changed at the last minute (and I'm so glad I did after seeing them way over used on The Block). This is the perfect way I can get my Marble Hexagon fix now without the commitment :) Will definitely be making a set of these, thank you!
