We are getting closer and closer to the big day, only
two days until my daughter’s backyard wedding.
We have spent the day cleaning the garden and yard,
and I plan on busting out the glue gun and turning into
a bunting-making machine.
But I had enough time to make some cute new outdoor
drink coasters for the patio last night. They were super
easy and I love the way they turned out.
Basic white tiles (I found mine at Home Depot for .16 each!)
Sharpie pens in a variety of colors
Felt for the back of the coaster
Poly-crylic matte spray sealer
I began by drawing a big rose on each coaster free hand,
and surrounded it by pretty green leaves and a bright blue
background. Next I used orange and yellow on one, and red
and pink on the other to color and fill in the space to create
the flower. Leaving a few areas white, and the variation in
color makes the coasters look hand painted.
After each tile was dry, I cut a piece of felt for the back
slightly smaller than the tile and hot-glued it onto the bottom
to prevent scratching on a table top. I used a coat of poly-crylic
on the top of each tile and allowed it to dry well.
Voila! Pretty new coasters for your home or patio!
Until next time,
