I’ve been meaning to actually do this DIY for a while now. But of course before I could never find the time… that was my excuse. So I made time. I have a bad habit of making excuse about time and putting things off. So last night, I finally go to it! I will apologize ahead of time, I didn’t have the best lighting last night to actually take pictures for the DIY 😦 BUT I’ll do my best to walk you guys through this simple and inexpensive DIY.
– Adhesive Felt stickers ($0.16 each at Home Depot)
– A brush
– Mod Podge
– Permanent Marker
– (optional) Stencil
Notes: My felt stickers are actually from Ikea. I had some left over from a previous project. You can use any paint of your choice depending on the look and texture you want. I used a gold FolkArt Acrylic Paint. I used lace but any other stencil or similar fabric can be used. Try to avoid fabrics that fray easily. As for the mod podge you can use the matte or the gloss, again depending on the look and feel that you want.
Lay the lace over the tile. I used painters tape to hold the lace in place while adding the gold paint. Simply dab the paint onto the lace. I say dab because you don’t want too much movement with the lace. I did this to two of the tiles.
The other two tiles, I left just painted gold without adding the lace. Once you have completed all 4 tiles, brush or spray on your Mod Podge. Then allow all for to dry. (below)
Once they’re all dry, add 4 adhesive felt stickers to the back of each tile. This will prevent them from scratching the surface of your table.
Optional: If you want to add words to your coasters, you can either free hand it using a permanent marker. Or you can use a stencil. I used a stencil for mine.
Now you’re all set to start using your new coasters!
Stay focused and inspired!
Love you guys!
