Our new screen porch is our family’s favorite hangout spot now that warmer weather has returned. As I’ve been working to furnish and decorate it, I noticed a simple key item was missing – drink coasters! I wanted something fun and unique so, instead of just shopping for a set, we made our own.

DIY Coasters: Supplies

Instructions

Step 1 Trace your coaster or square tiles onto the scrapbook paper.

Step 2 Cut the paper inside the traced lines. To be sure the decoupage fully covers and seals the paper, you want the paper squares smaller than the top of the coaster. I wanted a slightly more relaxed look, so I use scissors to cut them out. If you want more precise cut squares, use a straight edge and x-acto knife instead.

Step 3 Apply decoupage to the top of the coaster and adhere a paper square. Press firmly and be sure there are no bubbles.

Step 4 Coat the top of the paper with decoupage. Set aside the coasters to dry per instructions on the bottle.

Step 5 After the decoupage has fully dried, coat the coasters with a layer or two of spray acrylic sealer.

Follow instructions on the bottle for drying time (we let ours sit overnight). Now you’re ready to grab a snack and a drink as you enjoy your new coasters!

We took ours straight to the porch and I fixed a plate of snacks to share – Fudge Covered OREO and Fudge Covered Nutter Butter cookies plus fresh strawberries.

Naturally, we needed glasses of cold milk to enjoy with the cookies. Perfect to test out our new coasters! My kids were pretty excited about this impromptu celebration and happily shared the plate of snacks (2 cookies is one serving).

I found the Fudge Covered OREO and Fudge Covered Nutter Butter cookies in the cookies and crackers aisle at our local Harris Teeter while doing our weekly grocery shopping. Take the delicious cookies you know and love, then add a coating of fudge – so, so good.

    I put felt or cork on the back of mine, so they wouldn't scratch.

    We have made them for our children & used photos of their children. They loved them.
