Cool off this summer with this homemade coasters DIY tutorial that teaches you how to upcycle several sheets of cork trivet into cute watermelon coasters.

To make these fun fruity coasters begin by picking up several sheets of cork trivet. The cork trivet already comes in a circle shape which is perfect for creating watermelon slices. Begin by placing a smaller paper circle over top of the cork trivet so you can effortlessly paint the perimeter green. Remove the paper circle and fill in the rest of the cork trivet with a rosy pink paint. Add black circles to represent the seeds and cut the cork trivet up into fours. Now you have four fruity reusable coasters that cost you next to nothing to make!
