DIY Drink Coaster Tutorial

by Dinah Wulf
I am so excited to have Heather from Setting for Four today!  She is sharing one of my favorite tutorials of hers, a DIY Drink Coaster Tutorial.  Also, she included a bonus of my absolute fave, her DIY Beaded Sunburst Mirror!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  Please feel free to share it too.  If you Pin it, I’d love it if you pinned it from her website to show her some LOVE!  Welcome, Heather!

 

Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be here at DIY Inspired to guest post today!
My name is Heather and I blog at Setting for Four:
I’m a Military wife with a passion for family friendly design that won’t break the bank or sacrifice style! I am a mom of two teenagers and married to my best friend, an Infantryman, whom I am so proud of! I love to create things by hand, cook healthy meals and most of all create a comfy and cozy space for our family of four.
Here’s my DIY Drink Coaster Tutorial:
Drink Coasters are a great Do It Yourself project to make for your home or give as presents!
They are great to have in your living room, kitchen, office etc. but can be expensive to buy, so let’s make our own!

DIY Coasters:

Many coaster tutorials use tiles but I find them to be a bit too big .
This tutorial uses coasters I found at the Dollar Store.  They are the perfect size and they are backed with cork so that step is already done!

Supplies:
Scrapbooking Paper – Michaels, 99 cents.  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.)
Mod Podge
Polyurethane
Paint brush
Custom Coaster Tutorial:
Cut out a piece of scrapbooking paper to the exact width and length of your coaster.
Brush on Mod Podge to the reverse side of the paper and apply to top of coaster.
Make sure there are no bubbles and all edges are glued down by pressing firmly.
Seal the paper and apply one or two layers of polyurethane.
These custom coasters are great to make for hostess gifts, birthday and Christmas gifts too!
