I recently went to the store to buy myself a new set of coasters... However when I looked at the price on what I thought to be a cheap set, I quickly changed my mind. What is the point of buying an overpriced unoriginal set, when you could just make your own fabulous ones? So I did.
I decided to make a cute set I found on Jo-ann
's website, but of course, I modified the project and did it my way. The final product turned out the same, I just forgot to buy some materials (like always) and was forced to go about creating my coasters a different way. Here's how I made mine...
Mod Podge Sheer Colors - Green, Purple
Scotch Multi-Purpose Adhesive
FolkArt Multi-Surfact Paint - Licorice
Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Paint - Satin
FolkArt Peel & Stick Stencil
Woodline Works 4 x 4 round plaque quantity 4
Barnwood scrapbook paper
Flat brush 1/2"
Paint rim and bottom of coasters Satin. Let dry for several hours.
Place peel & stick stencils on top of coasters in whichever arrangement you like. I chose 4 different words that had different letters in them, because I was only able to use these stencils one time.
Use Spongit Stick to apply Licorice to stencils. I learned the hard way to only do one light layer, don't cake on the paint because it takes forever to dry. I would suggest letting it dry overnight.
After the paint is completely dry slowly peel off the stencils.
Apply Sheer Colors with a flat brush to surface of coasters. The more coats that you apply, the darker the color becomes.
Cut 2/5" strips of Barnwood scrapbook paper that will fit around the edge of the coasters.
Apply adhesive to paper strips and wrap around the edge of the coasters.
Set your cup on top of your favorite finished coaster and marvel at all of its glory. :)
