I saw these a year ago at Urban Outfitter's, and thought that I could make the same thing for a whole lot cheaper.

  • How to recycle a magazine coaster. Urban Outfitter's Junk Mail Coasters - Step 1
    Step 1

    Rip a page from a magazine out along the seams. Fold the pages into strips horizontally starting with a width about as big as your pinky nail.

    Step 2

    Starting is a bit hard, but basically start rolling the paper in a circle, applying Mod Podge (or other sealer) as you go. [Watch out, your hands might get a bit sticky.]

    Step 3

    Use the table as a guide to keep the top straight. If the bottom isn't straight, it's okay, it should still be pretty balanced.

@ Vickedy- ModPodge is a paper sealant. Any form of water resistant glue would probably work, though. (e.g. Tacky Glue)

@ mintylee- You just line the next piece up with the previous one and the glue holds it all togeter.

you could put some clear fingernail polish over that JUST to make sure it doesn't get wet.
