Go green this year by recycling old holiday cards or decorative paper into DIY coasters. These make nice gifts, favors or festive accents for your home!
- Ceramic tile about 4¼ in. square
- Recycled cards or decorative papers
- Paper trimmer
- Sticky back stiffened felt
- Decoupage glue
- Sponge brush
- Clear acrylic sealer
From recycled cards or decorative papers, cut a 4-in. square. (Project tip: Don’t be afraid to experiment with the shape of the decorative paper. Try circles, stars or diamond shapes!)
Use sponge brush to apply a thin coat of decoupage glue to the top of the tile. Immediately adhere the paper square to the tile, centering the design. Let the glue dry.
Apply a thin layer of decoupage glue over the paper and cover the tile edges. Let dry.
Cut a 4-in. square piece of sticky back stiffened felt. Center and adhere to the bottom of the coaster.
Repeat steps 1-5 for desired number of tile DIY coasters to complete the set.
