DIY Mod Podge Coasters

If you have a man-child at home who leaves wet bottomed glasses on wooden furniture despite several warnings; you know it’s time to have some coasters!

I have collected a few foam crates. You know the black ones that carry veggies? I thought it would be a good idea to use them as coasters. I paired these with some old book pages, hand drawn illustrations and lots of Mod Podge. As you can see, the coasters came out quite satisfying.

I will show you how I made these, but before that let me share some tips and bloopers with you.

  1. I recommend Mod Podge ‘Outdoor’ as it is water-resistant. I ran out of it and used the Matte Finish Mod Podge – Not a good idea.
  2. While pasting paper on to the surface, make sure to remove air bubbles and give it a smooth finish.
  3. Once you cut the foam sheets, smooth out the edges with sand paper.             CAUTION: You must do this outdoors or over the sink as the tiny shavings are going to fly about and you’re not going to like it.

Let’s begin!
