Spring is very close and we are all striving for bright colors and sunshine. Bring a bright touch to your space with colorful accessories, for example, coasters. Watercolor is a trendy idea to add color to the space, and it looks very chic, so watercolor coasters may be a cool choice. Let’s take a look at some!

These watercolor coasters are created with Q-tips. There were actually a couple of craft fails along the way in this project, but hopefully these mistakes will help you! Grab some plain white tiles and bold paints and go! These watercolor coasters are extremely fun to make. The alcohol ink is addicting to watch!

When winter bows out and spring starts to wrap her warm arms around us, we are craving for a bit of color! Creating your own set of DIY coasters is the perfect way to bring a bit of the outside color in!  Even better, coaster making is easy as pie and only require a few inexpensive supplies.

These watercolor coasters are made of porous bisque, which makes crafting a bit different and unusual. Applying alcohol ink to glossy yupo paper and smooth surfaces like china is really easy because the alcohol inks glide around the surface and, if the design didn’t work out, can quickly be wiped off china with a little alcohol before the ink dries. Applying alcohol ink to an absorbent surface like these bisque coasters is a little trickier but still possible and the results are more ethereal and have even more depth. The bisque created a more muted, almost more ethereal look. Love them? Head over to the source to make some!

In efforts to prepare for parties you can make these super cute watercolor coasters to hand out as hostess gifts. These ones aren’t tiles, these are birch squares with paper attached, so you’ll need to paint watercolors in the desired shades only on paper, which isn’t difficult. What I love about these coasters is that brushstroke pattern that they feature – very modern!

These are colorful and bright watercolor coasters made of hexagon plain tiles. They are colorful and bright and have the perfect metallic element, just a splash of gold! I love these super bright colors all over! Add cork backing to the tiles to make them less sound and comfier in using.
