I recently had the opportunity to write an article for the local publication, Fayette Woman Magazine.
I was asked to provide tutorials for 3 different hostess gifts that anyone could make easily and inexpensively.
One of the projects I chose to include in the article was a set of coasters.
If you have followed my blog for any length of time, then you have seen many projects I have done using patterned napkins. This is just another example of what you can do with napkins.
Here is the complete tutorial...
Stone or Ceramic Tiles
Patterned Paper Napkins
Cut a napkin into 4 pieces. One napkin will cover 4 tiles!
Napkins typically are 2,3, or 4 ply. Separate the layers so that you are left with a single layer.
Coat the top of the tile with Mod Podge, avoiding the sides.
Add the napkin to the tile and top with another coat of Mod Podge.
Gently tear away the excess paper from the edges of the tile. This works best if the paper is still wet from the Mod Podge.
When dry, give the coasters another coat of Mod Podge to ensure that they are sealed and durable.
Add felt pads to the bottom of each coaster to prevent them from scratching furniture.
If you are giving them as a gift, tie them together with a piece of jute or ribbon for a nice presentation.
