Picture Coasters

So, after we returned from our trip, we had all these great pictures.  I decided to Mod Podge them onto coasters.  I found good tile coasters with the cork already on the bottom at a local dollar store.  


This was super easy to do.  I needed a sponge brush, Mod Podge, coasters, and the pictures.  




First, I cut the pictures to the size I wanted.






Next, I put a layer of Mod Podge down on the coaster followed by the picture I wanted on that coaster making sure to get all the bubbles out.  Then, I waited until that was dry before I put a layer of Mod Podge on top of the picture.  After that layer was dry, I sanded the edges so they wouldn't be bigger than the coaster and peel off, then I put one more layer of Mod Podge down just to make sure the picture wouldn't come up or get ruined.  Here is the finished product - obviously the last layer of Mod Podge is still drying!  I love our memories of New York City!






I love the way they came out!  I already have plans for Christmas gifts with some different pictures although one small change I will make will be to cut the picture a little smaller than the coaster so it doesn't have rough edges.  I will post those when they are done too!


Happy crafting!

  2. I love the edges! The distressed edge looks really cool, I wouldn't change that. Although, running an ink pad along the edges might be cool, too. I want to use this for Christmas gifts, too! Great idea!
