How to Make Tile Drink Coasters and Trivets for Your Home

Tile for coasters

Choosing Tiles for Coasters

A wide variety of ceramic, glass, stone, or metal tiles can be used for coasters and trivets, so be creative! You can use salvaged or antique tiles, leftovers from a home project, or pick out some you like at the store. For the prettiest coasters, look for decorative accent tiles with glazed edges.

Smaller 4” tiles work great for drinks while 6” tiles can serve double duty as both coasters and trivets. You can even use large 12” tiles to make trivets for your dining table.


  1. I have taken 1″ ceramic tiles and glued them to cork board. Now I need to finish the edges to complete the trivets in 6″ X 6″ size.
