2015 Mom's Guide to All Things Holiday: DIY Beverage Coasters

Hey there! I am teaming up with a group of bloggers today to showcase an inexpensive gift idea for anyone on your Holiday list. These quick and easy beverage coasters are easy to do and require just a few items to complete.  Plus I spent less than $4 for all of the supplies. The perfect budget-friendly gift option! 

Supplies Needed:
Scrapbook paper of your choice
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush
Four tiles from any home improvement store

First, you will want to cut your scrapbook paper  to about the size of your glass tile. Spread the Mod Podge all over the top of the tile using the sponge brush,

 then apply the scrapbook paper on top, making sure it goes on smooth with no air bubbles. Once the paper is applied, add another layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper using the sponge brush.

Repeat these steps for each tile. Let dry overnight.

Cut out small squares of felt and glue to the bottom the tile so that when it is used, it will have a soft bottom to rest on, and not straight glass.

I didn't cut them out in a pretty way as you can see:)

Next, set with Polycrylic so that you are able to actually put them to use and they are sealed from water damage.

An wa la! Cute coasters that can make any gift receiver happy!
