Plastic Canvas Coaster - Finishing Technique

Print Friendly and PDF
How to back a coaster

One method to finish a plastic canvas coaster is to add cork to the back.

I like this method because the cork helps the coaster stay on the table better.

Watch this video to learn how!

Click to watch the Plastic Canvas Coaster - Finishing Technique video in Youtube.

Here are some written instructions.

Thin cork
Hot Glue Gun

Cut the cork slightly smaller than the coaster.

Secure cork to the back of the coaster with glue or hot glue.

Weight down with heavy object, such as a book, for a little while.

The coaster is ready to use!
