Homemade coasters



This year for Christmas and some birthdays Kylan and I made homemade coasters. All you do is go to Home Depot or Lowe's and buy some plain tiles. Bring them home and add cute accents to them (you can use a cricut to cut crosses or fleur-de-lis, or even put a monogram on them and you can use stickers, rub ons or even pictures, they have to be flat) then modge podge over them and let it dry for at least 24 hours then apply a sealer to them, we used a spray on sealer and when they are totally dry and sealed then add felt to the bottom. We used the little peel off circles and we also used the self adhesive sheets from Hobby Lobby. Everyone loved them and Kylan was so proud of himself for making some gifts. Oh, you can also paint them if you want to and use sharpie markers to draw pictures (for kids).

Love the coasters. I've seen these and even read about how to make them before. I just need to do it sometime. I'll remember this for Christmas this year. Courtney would enjoy making them for gifts.
