I’m back with one last DIY of the year and I think you’re going to like these totally glam marble and gold DIY coasters! They are inexpensive, super simple to make and yet manage to look gorgeous at the same time. I really love how these came out and they’ll definitely be coming out for any Christmas and New Years gatherings we’re having but really, they can be used all year round!

I’ve teamed up once again with SwiftCover for their #SwiftHomeHacks campaign and this little DIY is perfect if you are entertaining and want things to look like you made a big effort but don’t fancy a big expensive price tag to go with it.

As you already know, I’m obsessed with all things gold and I’m a bit in love with the look of marble as well. I’ve used this sticky back plastic (ie., contact paper to my brethren across the pond) in white marble many times before but this time, I decided to go a bit dark and moody and so used a black marble pattern as well. The combination of the two along with gold was a winning one.

I reckon these would be perfect on a Christmas table, for an impromptu drinks party or you can make a set if you are having a little New Years’ eve soirée. The sticky back plastic is water-resistant as well so they are easy to keep clean – just wipe the top with a damp cloth and you’re ready to go.

For the single pattern coasters with gold stripes

Cut a piece of the black or white marble paper slightly larger than the size of your coaster. Peel off the plastic and adhere it in place, making sure there are no visible bubbles. Using a sharp craft knife, cut away the excess paper.

Cut long narrow strips from the gold paper and lay on top of the paper on the base.

You can then cut smaller sizes to make an abstract pattern. Make sure any strips are long enough to run off the edge of the coaster. For shorter pieces, lift up longer pieces and hide the cut side underneath.

Flip the coaster right side down and using the craft knife, cut along the edge to remove the excess paper.

For the half white, half black marble coasters with a narrow gold band

Using your ruler and pencil, find the middle point of your coaster. Draw a line at this point across the diameter.

Cut a piece of white marble paper slightly larger and longer than half the size of your coaster and butt the straight edge along this line. Repeat the process but with the black paper.

For the ‘peace sign’ coaster

Using your ruler and pencil, find the middle point of your coaster. Draw a line at this point across the diameter as before. Cut a piece of white marble paper slightly larger and longer than half the size of your coaster but at the middle mark, cut an angle in the paper.

Repeat this for the other side with the black paper and butt it up to the white paper.

Add a narrow strip of gold paper overlapping the two edges of the black and white paper and just slightly longer than the midpoint.

Finally, cut a piece of gold paper in a square and angle it so that it butts up to the edge of the white paper and overlaps the black paper.

Flip the coasters right side down and using the craft knife, cut away the excess paper.

For the half white, half black marble coasters with a wide gold band

Cut a wide strip of gold paper and place down the centre of the coaster.

Cut one piece of black paper and one piece of white paper, both larger and longer than half the size of the coaster and butt each along each side of the gold strip.
