-Craft Paint in color of your choice - purchased mine at Hobby Lobby for .59
-unfinished wooden coaster base (I'm really not sure what the term is for this piece but I found them in two different sizes at Hobby Lobby in their unfinished wood section. I got the slightly larger size that was .99 but you can get a smaller version for 2 for 1.00.)
-decorative paper - I used scrapbook paper but you could use a leftover scrap of wallpaper, a favorite gift wrap paper, fabric, etc.
How to guide:
1. Paint unfinished wooden base
2. Cut paper to fit top and adhere with Mod Podge to coaster base
3. Mod Podge over the entire coaster (sides and top) to seal the coaster and protect
4. cut felt piece to fit bottom of wooden base, adhere with tacky glue
Ta-da! You're done! It's really that simple!
Here's the one I made for the side table in Baby Sissy's room. I just needed one and it's custom made to match her room.
Here are the two I made for made for my living room. I plan to make some additional coasters to change out with each season. I'm thinking something brighter and fun for summer, perhaps a white wooden base with a simple seashell cut out decoupaged on top.
With the help of handsome hubby I was able to get the paper lanterns hung in Baby Sissy's room and I think it looks great. I'll be posting pictures soon.
On a side note, I have to send a big Congratulations shout out to my dear friend and neighbor, Savvy Momma http://savvymomma.blogspot.com/ who just had her baby boy today! She and I have seen each other through these second pregnancies and I'm so excited for her that he has finally arrived! We're planning to visit them tomorrow and I can't wait to meet him!
Is it my turn yet?! :) Nope, still have 6 weeks left to go!
