Bring a surf and sand look to your coffee table with resin starfish coasters

For true beach lovers, no amount of sea, sun and sand is ever enough. That's precisely why so many people make it a habit to collect things such as seashells, sand dollars and starfish to bring home. What exactly are you meant to do with these items once the newness wears off, though?
If you're looking for a functional way to put starfish on display, this is the perfect project to lend a hand. With just a handful of products and a little bit of spare time, you can create a sea-centric centerpiece for a coffee table in the form of starfish coasters.

Instructions
1. Place a starfish in the center of a resin coaster mold, and set the mold aside.
2. Pour 30 ML of clear resin into a measuring cup. Do the same thing with clear epoxy hardener, and combine the two liquids in the plastic bowl.
3. Mix the resin and epoxy hardener with a wooden craft stick.
4. Once the mixture is thoroughly combined, begin filling the mold with the starfish inside.
5. Fill the mold to the top, using the wooden craft stick to adjust the placement of the starfish.
6. Let the newly formed coaster sit for 24 hours so it has time to harden before removing it from the mold.
