I’m not sure, when I decided that I needed me some agate coasters, but I will tell you once I saw how much they cost I said never-mind honey chile. Then I went, on Pinterest because it’s my go to reference library for any DIY project. Surely, someone has recreated a version or can tell me how to make it without paying full price. This by far, is the easiest DIY Agate Coasters tutorial I could up with based on the DIY projects I found on Pinterest.
With any DIY, some examples require a serious supply of DIY material, that you may or may not have depending on how many Pinterest hacks or tricks you’ve been brave enough to attempt. I wanted my set to mirror the quality of a high end home decor store, but for less than half the price. I spent $25.24 for all 5 coasters glided in gold. This included the coast of the agate slices, rubber bumpers and the gold gliding.
- 5 Agate Slices (here is where I bought mine)
- 1 bottle of Rub-N-Buff – Antique gold
- Rubber Glove
- Rubber Bumper Pads (3 for each slice)
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Clean all slices with rubbing alcohol and remove any stickers from slice.
- Apply Rub-N-Buff per directions. I used my hands without any gloves, but a paint brush or glove will help with the application. Be careful not to get Rub-N-Buff on the flat surface of coaster.
- Let coasters dry for a couple of hours.
- Then apply 3 rubber bumpers to bottom of each coaster.
