I’m a person that loves having photos of my family and friends all over my home, but with a finite amount of wall space, I’ve started to get creative with where I can sprinkle a few extra memories. Personalized coasters are a great option for adding a few more pictures and because they’re fairly simple to create, they also make for a fantastic gift idea! Whether you’re looking for a Christmas or a housewarming present idea, these coasters can be given year round – follow along as I show you how to make DIY coasters.
- Unfinished Wood Coaster Set
- Patterned Scrapbook Paper
- Outdoor Mod Podge Waterproof Sealer
- Permanent Double Sided Tape Roller
Step four. Apply 3-4 light coats of Outdoor Mod Podge on each side of the coasters with a foam brush. The Outdoor Mod Podge is key because it is waterproof and that’s super important for a long lasting seal that will hold up to moisture from drinks. Allow the Mod Podge to dry completely in between coats.
I chose to leave the holder as unfinished wood because the color of the wood coordinates with my decor, but you could easily paint or stain the wood to match your decor preferences. These would also be amazing with holiday patterned paper and past Christmas photos for the holiday season!
