Lately I’ve been working on creating cute 4th of July decor. I’m on a budget so I want to make things that look cute but are also affordable. I found these coasters at Lowes for around .80 cents a piece and picked up a few. I decided to turn them into patriotic coasters using some napkins I found at big lots a while back. This  was such a fun project and I plan on making more for Christmas! These coasters would make adorable gifts!

Supplies:

  • Square tiles from somewhere like Lowes ( They cost about .80 cents a tile)
  • Napkins ( I chose these patriotic ones for the 4th of July)
  • Mod Podge
  • pain brush
  • felt stickers ( You can find these in the hardware department)

Step 1:  The first step is to peel the backing of of the napkin. The easiest way to do this is to cut a corner of the napkin at an angle. Then rub the napkin using your thumb and pointer finger until the napkin separates. Gently peel the backing off.

Step 2: The next step is to apply the napkin. To do this paint the entire tile, including the sides, with mod podge. Line the napkin up with the tile and gently press it to the tile. Use your hands to gently press out any big wrinkles… you will have some wrinkles, it’s impossible to get all of them out. You will also want to use your fingers to press the napkin to the sides of the tile.

Step 3: Once the mod podge is dry take a piece of sandpaper and gently sand the excess napkin off the bottom of the tile.





Step 4: Apply 1-2 more coats of mod podge and allow to dry. Once the Mod Podge is dry add a felt circle to each corner.

I used some red rope to tie the coasters together. I love how this project turned out!
