Choose a stencil that is at least one inch smaller than the coaster. Tape it down firmly with painter's tape, making sure to cover any areas you do not want colored. Simply paint the exposed areas in your desired color.

Using a monogram helps personalize your coasters.

Use painter's tape to create different patterns on the cork coasters. Using spray paint, color the exposed areas. Once the paint has dried, you can either paint the space left from the tape or leave the cork exposed to create a more natural look. Mix it up and get creative!

Use tape to block off areas of the coaster.
