Does anyone have any ideas on what to do with coasters? I've done quite a bit of traveling and collected coasters from each country. They are all different shapes and sizes. I was trying to think of a way I could tastefully display them in my house. I would have loved to do a coffee table top under glass, but I don't need any more tables.  Any ideas or pictures of what you have done with coasters would be great!

I would put them all in a big frame with a neutral background.
Then the different shapes and colors would pop.


Or you could put them all up around your ceiling like a border...i don't know how many you have....


Yeah..I'm all tapped out.

Good luck. Post it when you make it!

What about mounting them on a cork board, along with other bits of memorabilia from your trip (ie ticket stubs, photos, stamps, brochures, maps, etc). That might be fun.

I'd do a shadow box.  They may be varying depths alreaady, but it may be really neat to vary the depths even more so that it would give a 3D effect within the shadow box.  I haven't done anything like this myself, so I'm sorry I don't have a picture to share, just an idea. Smiley

In corporate them into a windchime. Cover your fridge with them.  Incorporate them into a mosaic on the wall.  That's as creative as I am tonight xD  If you don't mind cutting them you could make like.. a chessboard out of them, maybe xD

Hello,

You can make wall hanging with it, or decorate your dining area with it.
