These are the ones I'm going to make. They are adorable ceramic tile coasters made with any designed paper. I happen to already have eight glossy white ceramic tiles and you bet I have pretty designed paper. Prudent Baby made these adorable matryoshka and owl tile coasters. They are simple, inexpensive, and needless to say pretty darn adorable!
Or how about these creative woven magazine coasters thought up by How About Orange? I am always looking for gorgeous ways to use my ever-growing mound of magazines. And how eco-friendly is this idea? "Very" is the word you're looking for.
On of my favorites is this cool set of painted numbered cork coasters by apartment therapy. They're chic, modern and can be masculine (if you need them to be). Also a good way to remember which drink is yours.
Have some extra felt laying around? Try these felt coasters (on the right) or go buy some cheap foam rubber for some rubber coasters (on the left). Both are the creative ideas of Design*sponge.
Here's a cool coaster idea you've probably never seen before.. Tree limb coasters by Curbly.
