I have a confession...I've never used Mod Podge before, crazy huh? So the other day I was looking at our monochromatic family room and thought this room could use a little color! So I set out to make coasters using craft paper and Mod Podge. Here's how it all went down.
Here are my supplies. I chose craft papers in soft turquoise and green. These tiles I found at the re-store for 25 cents each.
Using the Mod Podge, I started by adhering the paper to the top of the tile.
Then I put a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper allowing 15 minutes to dry before adding another layer.
Here they are drying. Kid 2 made a cute butterfly coaster...
Each coaster has 3 thin layers of Mod Podge...this should protect the papers from any water damage.
Cute and functional...two of my favorite things!
This is such a fun rainy day project, and took just under 2 hours to complete. Now I've got fun, pretty coasters that also protect my table from water marks.
My first experience with Mod Podge? Yup, Mod Podge rocks!!!
I'm linkin' this project to these fun linky parties...
