I’ve been wanting to try doing some DIY Coasters using napkins! And at this time of year there are so many cute napkins all over…I’m always looking for a great party favor or hostess gift and these DIY coasters would be perfect for either…
Next time you see adorable napkins and think you don’t really need them, remember these coasters! Here’s what ya need:
*Napkins (small ones)
*Matte tiles (got mine at Home Depot for 16 cents each!)
*Cork for the bottom (you can use the tiny cork dots or the rolls of cork)
*Polyurethane for sealing the finished product!
The napkin had 4 images when I unfolded it! So you could do a Craft party and tons of people could share a pack of napkins! I use only the top layer of the napkin. I find the thinner the paper, the better it goes on.
Spread Mod Podge on the tile and place the napkin, carefully rubbing over the top.
Now put on a generous coat of Mod Podge…let it dry and put on another coat!
Put cork on the back side. If you’re using the dots just put them in the corners. I used the roll of cork (because I had it!) and I put 4 big blobs of hot glue in the corners and then placed the cork, which is already sticky. The big blobs of hot glue gave the corners a tiny lift and made me feel like it would reeeeaaally stick.
Now just spray 2 coats of Polyurethane over the tops letting dry in between coats!
I took these with some kitchen towels as a hostess gift to Baby Sister on Thanksgiving. They were such fun to make I’m thinking of party favors for my Let’s Do Dessert Party that’s coming up!
