DIY Anthropologie Gold Leaf and Resin Coasters

Add some sparkle to your coffee table by making your own Anthropologie inspired gold leaf resin coasters. Just mix, pour and paint! (Click through for video tutorial)

A few weeks ago I was browsing the Anthropologie home goods sections and spotted these astral coasters. I fell in love with their look but like many things at Anthro, didn’t love their price tag. What’s a girl gonna do when that happens? DIY of course!

I’ve been wanting a reason to try resin and I thought this would be the perfect project. So I got some pointers from my friend Rachel (who has made glitter rings and magnets with resin) and gave it a try!

 

Anthropologie Inspired Gold Leaf and Resin Coasters

 

Supplies

Pourable resin / silicone coaster mold / gold leaf flakesplastic cups / rubber gloves / mixing bowl / popsicle sticks / craft paint / paint brush

Add some sparkle to your coffee table by making your own Anthropologie inspired gold leaf resin coasters. Just mix, pour and paint! (Click through for video tutorial)

Directions

  1. Pour 2 oz. of resin into a small plastic cup (if you’re using 9 oz. cups, you can use the bottom line or ridge on the cup as a guide). Pour 2 oz. of resin hardener in a separate cup.
  2. Pour the hardener into the cup of resin and stir with a popsicle stick for 2 minutes. Then carefully stir in the gold leaf flakes. The more gold leaf you add the more golden your coaster will look.
  3. Fill a small mixing bowl with warm water and place the cup with the resin mixture in it. Let it sit in the warm water for 5 minutes. This will help push large air bubbles to the surface.
  4. Remove the resin cup from the bowl of water and wipe away any water on the outside of the cup. Lay the silicone mold on a flat surface (that’s covered with paper in case of spills) and pour the mixed resin directly into the mold.
  5. Allow it to dry for 24 hours before removing it from the mold. If you want to make more than 1, repeat steps 1-5 now so they all are ready to paint at the same time.
  6. To add color to the coaster, simply paint the back of the coaster using craft paint. Allow it to dry completely then it’s ready to be used!

Though I didn’t in the video, I highly recommend wearing rubber gloves when working with resin.
