Learn how to make a Unicorn Spit Coaster! It’s an easy resin coaster DIY! The thing I love about doing coasters is they are a small canvas to try different art techniques and decor techniques. This coaster is a perfect example of how you can take this small and inexpensive project and apply it to a larger canvas to make an inexpensive home decor item that looks like a million bucks as wall art or leaned up on your mantel. You can customize the color to reflect your personal style and home decor theme!

Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:
1. I found these wood squares at the craft store.
2. I used Unicorn Spit in five different colors.
3. I put two colors at a time, on my paint brush and put it on the wood squares. They blend beautifully!
4. I used a paper towel to wipe off the excess,
5. I put the coasters up on cups. I mixed two ounces of resin and poured it on the coasters.
6. I used a sponge brush to move the resin around the coaster and to have more control.
7. Once I had it all covered, I used a lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.
Now they look great and shiny!
8. I did not to the back of the coasters, so I pulled out my cork shelf liner.
9. I cut it to size.
10. I peeled off the backing.
11. I applied it to the back of the coasters.
12. Rubbed it down.
That’s it! Now you have beautiful coasters that won’t scratch your table.
