How to make a sequin coaster

A sequined coaster is a great way to add some shine to any surface in a room. Use it as a base for a drinking glass or a vase of flowers, and use any sequin color to complement or contrast with decor. These coasters also are nice as practical gifts for birthdays and holidays or as door prizes.
When collecting materials for this project, make sure the base of the chosen bowl is similar in diameter to the silicone mold. If the bowl is bigger, the resin will overflow the mold or you will have to waste the resin by adding less to the mold.
