The holidays are nearly upon us, and it often means lots of extra guests and plenty of festive holiday beverages. These shimmery gold coasters have an organic pattern that reminds us of caviar. Here’s how to make this project in a few simple steps using the material from your recent Whimseybox!
Start with two ceramic tiles, a piece of craft felt, metallic paint (Martha Stewart makes our favorite in gold) and a paint marker.
Paint your tiles gold. Unfinished tiles can absorb a lot of paint, so you might need to do two coats.
To get the organic, caviar-inspired pattern you’ll need to draw small circles touching each other using a paint pen. Try not to get too caught up in making everything perfect and even and just keep adding circles until it looks good to you.
This one is just about done.
To apply a felt bottom to the coaster, trace your tile on the felt and then cut it out.
Apply glue or Mod Podge to the back of the coaster and then attach the felt.
Trim any excess with a pair of scissors and allow the glue to dry before putting your coasters to work beneath a sparkly drink! Here’s the Pinterest-friendly version:
