I love drink coasters and who doesn’t need some new ones?
Most of the tutorials I have seen are for tile coasters, using tiles found at Home Depot or Lowes. Although I went to Lowes and took a look, I just didn’t like the size – I found them to be a bit too big.
However, I found these coasters at the Dollar Store. What’s great about using these instead of tiles is that they already come backed with cork, so you don’t have to add anything to protect your tables. It’s already done!
DIY Coasters Supplies:
Scrapbooking Paper – This paper has the added bonus of reversing to a different pattern, so you can alternate the colors of your coasters to make a set that looks beautiful together. But for this project I just used the script side.
Coaster – Dollar store, $1.00 each. (More expensive than Lowes 20 cent tiles, but as I mentioned, the Dollar store’s are already backed with cork.)
Custom Coaster Tutorial:
Measure your coaster and cut out a piece of scrapbooking paper to size.
Apply Mod Podge to back of paper and apply to coaster.
Press firmly to ensure there are no bubbles and all edges are glued down.
Apply one or two layers of polyurethane to seal.
You are done….Enjoy!
