Need the perfect set of coasters? These coasters, crafted from upcycled tiles, broken glass, and grout, will keep your tables covered.

You know those adorable concrete mosaic kits that they sell in all the big-box craft stores, the ones with all the stuff that you need to make one concrete mosaic, handprint optional, to put in your garden path in the spring? The ones that look really fun to make, and you're pretty sure that the grandparents would just adore one made by your kids?
