The topic for this weeks #BloggersBTS is DIY. I have already posted about two projects (French Memo Board & Bed Table) but I decided to make another post about a project I have done awhile back; Lilly Pulitzer Coasters. This project was actually a lot easier than I originally thought it would be. However, I did experience a few hiccups along the way.
Coasters (I bought white tiles from lower)
Paint Brush (I used the sponge-y kind)
Rubber Circle Things (to keep from scratching table)
I made my coasters using pages from a medium sized agenda so the width didn’t exactly fit the tile so I had to make do, I think they still turned out well. The second batch did turn out better and I gave them away as a graduation gift to my friend.
Here’s how I created the coasters:
~ I flipped through the agenda and cut out the pages I liked the most and trimmed the scraggly edges off.
~ Then I placed it over the tile to see where I need to cut and add more to the tile since the width was not big enough. Then I kept the pieces aside for the moment.
~ I painted the coaster with a coat of mod podge and then placed the pages on top of the coaster and smoothed it out.
~ Added 2-3 more coat of mod podge allowing it to dry completely between each coat. (I switched to a new tile to help kill time while waiting to dry.)
~ After the coasters were dry, I added the carpet/rubber things (not sure what they are actually called) to the bottom of the coasters to prevent them from scratching my bed side table or anything else in my dorm.
… and WALLAH (spell check) this is how I created my Lilly Pultizer coasters. I imagine the process would be easier if I had a large or jumbo Lilly Agenda.
