DIY Gift Ideas Christmas Coasters
My first attempt is these DIY Gift Ideas Christmas Coasters with the fun reindeer.
Prepare Napkin for Napkin Decoupage
Begin by laying the tile coaster over the design in a desirable position. Trace around the coaster with an ink pen.
Next, cut the napkin along the trace lines with sharp scissors.
Separate The Napkin Layers
Now you want to separate the three layers of the napkin.
This tip really helps to prevent the napkins from becoming damaged.
Add a piece of clear tape to the backside of the napkin.
The tape should extend beyond the edge of the napkin. Gently pull the tape and lift the single-ply decorative side of the napkin away from the two back layers.
You may only remove one of the layers the first time and may need to repeat to get both layers detached from the decorative layer.
Make Napkin Decoupage Coasters
Position the decorative napkin over the tile and lay it over the mod podge.
Lightly tap the napkin into place and smooth any bubbles.
Next, apply another light coat of mod podge over the napkin using the brush to smooth any bubbles or wrinkles. Don’t worry about perfecting it because there will be some wrinkles in the napkin.
In addition, be cautious not to brush too vigorously, or you will tear the napkin.
If this should happen, move the tile to a sink and wash the napkin and mod podge from the tile. Then allow the tile to dry before reapplying.
Next, allow the coaster to dry for approx. 30-45 minutes, and apply another coat of mod podge.
You will once again notice some bubbling. However, this is normal, and you should gently use the brush to press out as many bubbles as possible.
Seal Napkin Decoupage Coasters
Finally, allow the mod podge to dry approx. 1-2 hours and use a waterproof Clear Matte spray paint to seal the napkin decoupage coasters.
Be sure to use the spray sealer in a well-ventilated area.
Allow coasters to dry, and don’t expose them to water for at least seven days.
Add Cork Backing
To finish the coasters, add the adhesive cork backing to each tile.
