Making your own DIY Cricut Coasters is really easy ! You can use a variety of materials and they are cute and functional. For this project, I used my Cricut Maker to make quick and easy DIY Coasters out of Cricut Chipboard and vinyl – and you don’t have to seal them with Mod Podge! Find out how I made my Cheers Y’all DIY drink coasters below.
How to Make DIY Cricut Coasters
This week, I’m cohosting the “Use Your Cricut” Instagram Challenge with Hey Let’s Make Stuff, where we make Cricut projects based on a weekly theme. This week’s theme is “Drink” and I made this set of EASY DIY Coasters with my Cricut Maker! I used chipboard and covered the entire surface of the coaster with vinyl. They are essentially waterproof without having to be covered with a sealant like Mod Podge.
The Cricut Instagram Challenge hosted by Cori from Hey Let’s Make Stuff is a great way to try new projects with your Cricut, and if you are on Instagram FOLLOW US – @pineapplepapercompany and @heyletsmakestuff and share your projects!

What Do You Need to Make your Own DIY Coasters?
You’ll need the following supplies to make the cute coasters pictured above:
–Cricut Vinyl in Marbled Pink (Martha Stewart branded Cricut Vinyl) and Blue
–Cricut StrongGrip and LightGrip Mats (purple and blue)
Cricut Chipboard requires the Cricut Maker and the Cricut Knife Blade! If you don’t have a Maker, it’s a great time to get one – the Cricut online store is always having sales, plus there are great bundle deals on Amazon.
How do you a Make Coaster with a Cricut?
If you’re new to using SVG files with your Cricut machine, make sure you read my full post on How to Upload an SVG to Cricut Design Space.
Open the DIY Coaster Cricut Design Space file that I’ve created for blank coasters. First, upload the Free Cheers Y’all SVG to Cricut Design Space.
Add the “Cheers Y’all” image and resize to fit your coasters. Copy and paste the image so you have 4 “Cheers Y’all” designs, like I did:
Next, cut out the coasters and vinyl. Since these are simple circle shapes, the Cricut Knife Blade will cut out the coasters from chipboard in about 5 minutes.
Weed away the extra vinyl from the “Cheers Y’all” designs. Place the vinyl circles on top of the chipboard, and then use transfer tape to place the “Cheers Y’all” on each coaster.
You’re done! Since the coaster is covered with vinyl, it’s really not necessary to seal these coasters with anything. That’s what makes them so easy and so quick to make – no drying time!
