Wanting some new coasters, I was inspired to upcycle some old candle lids to make pretty coasters at little cost. 

Here’s a picture of one of my candles with the lid on it:

Inside the lid there is a plastic liner that needs to be taken out.  It is simple, just place the tip of a screwdriver under the plastic, lift up and the whole thing easily pops out.

Next, I spray painted both sides of the lids.

Once dry, I traced around the inside of the lid to get the proper size.

Using that paper template, I cut rounds of cork out of 6” X 6” cork pieces.

I used a regular pair of scissors to cut the cork.  Because the cork fit perfectly into the lid, there was no need to glue it as it held snugly in place as you can see in this picture:

I have two more rooms that need new coasters, so once I get a few more lids, I’ll be upcycling more coasters!
