I was toying with the idea of making my own coffee table coasters for sometime now.
Decoupaging is a versatile craft idea.One of the most popular one I guess, is decoupaged table top coasters.It not only is easy but can be made with just a fraction of cost.
Just an initial investment of a couple of things from the craft store and one can make a bunch of colorful coffee mug coasters to go with your living room decor and theme.One can keep changing them according to different seasons and festivities.All we require to make new ones are some theme inspired pieces of paper.
Here is how I made my coffee coasters.little bit of patience and I was done:)
*small square pieces of tiles(home depot or any tile shop)
*Sponge brush , scissors
*colored papers or designed paper napkins of your choice.
* Mod podge
*A piece of felt or thin cork board.
cut the paper to fit the size and shape of the tile.make sure to cut the paper itsy bit smaller than the tile(lesson learned for me).That way the edges do not get torn during usage.
Apply a coat of mod podge on the tile and slowly and carefully place the cut paper on top of the tile smoothing it out all the while.
Pumpkin pie , paisley , lotus candle and something good to sip...:)
