{Easy Mod Podge Coasters}

I don’t know about you, but I’ve felt super busy lately.  I haven’t had time to sit down and work on long craft and sewing projects in a while.  No complaints here though…I like to feel busy.  This past weekend I did have a little down time to work on a super fast project that I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time now.  By no means can I claim this as my own idea as I’ve seen it done countless times on Pinterest and on a few friends’ blogs, but sometimes a girl just wants to find a project on Pinterest and put her own spin on it!  So, over the weekend I sat down for about half an hour and made

To make your own, you’ll need:

4 x 4 inch white glazed tiles {found at Home Depot for about $.14 a piece}

scrapbook paper in your desired colors/patterns

Mod Podge

Mod Podge brush

white felt

paper cutter

hot glue gun/glue sticks

materials

First, I cut out 4 x 4 inch squares from both my scrapbook papers and the white felt.  I opted to use the paper cutter for the paper so that I had nice, straight lines.  I simply cut the felt using my fabric scissors.

Once the felt was cut, I hot glued each piece onto the underside of each tile, thus creating a smooth surface that’s safe to rub against your tabletop.

To secure the scrapbook paper on top, I applied a thin layer of Mod Podge to the top of the tile, smoothed the paper down with a flat edge, and sealed the top of it with another coat of Mod Podge.  After about half an hour they were dry!

If you wanted to give these as a gift this Spring, you could tie a set of four up with some twine and add them to a gift basket with some freshly bottled lemonade.

    Problem I’ve had with these is that it when you stack them together the felt pad on the bottom sticks to the coaster below it & leaves an imprint. Doesn’t matter how long they’ve dried. Anyone know what to do about this? I made a ton of them & now don’t know what to do with them! Help!!

      Mine have been stacked for a three days now and I haven’t had that problem. I wonder why that’s happening for you?!

    These are super cute, but I would spray them with a clear sealant after they are dry. This helps make them water proof when you put a glass on them.

    I have made these and whenw e use them with hot drinks the cups will melt the Modge Podge causing the coaster to stick to the cup. I sprayed them with a clear coat that is made for a cars exhaust system so the heat would not mess them up but they are still melting through. How can I fix this? Or do you just use them for cold drinks?
