Making your own DIY Coasters is really easy with your Cricut and you can use a variety of materials! 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 drink coasters and see how some of my favorite bloggers made DIY Coasters for their homes with other materials like fabric, marble, wood, photos, and more!

How to Make DIY 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 these EASY DIY Coasters with my Cricut Maker! I decided to make them with chipboard and cover the entire surface of the coaster with vinyl so they are essentially waterproof without having to be sealed with a product 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 DIY Coasters with your Cricut?
–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 Make DIY Coasters with your Cricut?
First, upload the Free Cheers Y’all SVG to Cricut Design Space. You’ll need to do this to add them to the coasters file I’ve created for you to use. Open the DIY Coasters Cricut Design Space file that I’ve created for blank coasters.

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, you 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.
After the pieces have finished cutting, 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!
