Coasters are primarily those items that we use to save the top surfaces of our tables from being stained or the tablecloth being soiled from the utensils that carry liquids in them. Following are the ideas for DIY coasters to decorate your tabletop.
Use of Coasters
When you fill a cup or a glass with a beverage, you always will find yourself looking around for a small item to place the cup on, so that it does not stain, soil, or ruin your tablecloth. So is the case with tables with polished wooden surfaces, and with tables that have glass tops. In the initial days, saucers and small plates had been used to prevent the polished tabletops from being soiled. As the years passed by, new trends developed. Among them was that of using decorative coasters. Coasters used to be made of cardboard pieces in its early days. Later, many others interesting ways for making coasters developed.
