Christmas Coasters!

My mom and I did a little project and finished it up yesterday so I thought I would share it here!

We made some adorable Christmas coasters, and it wasn't that difficult of a project. The materials we used were; small paper napkins, tiles, cork, hot glue/hot glue gun, mod podge, and clear glossy finish spray.

First we each took four coasters and laid them out on top of saran wrap- in order to keep the desk clean.

Next we picked out some Christmasy napkins. My mom chose holly leaf napkins, and I chose ones with snowmen on them.

Using the mod podge and a small brush we completely covered the tiles and then carefully smoothed out the napkin. They tend to get a little wrinkled, so it may be better to use something with more of a pattern and less of an actual picture.

My moms turned out really nice!

We let them dry out for a few days, and then sprayed them with a clear finishing spray outside….

Then after waiting for a few more days, it was time to add cork to the bottom!

We cut out small squares of cork and then used the hot glue gun to attach them to the bottom of the tiles.

Cute! I'm excited that now I know how to make these little coasters and wanted to share this because they would make an adorable gift for someone, no matter the occasion!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas Eve and are spending time with family and friends!
