Step 1: What You'll Need
To make your own cereal box coasters, you will need...
- 4 x 4 inch ceramic tiles
- empty cereal boxes
- scissors or X-acto knife
- Gloss Mod Podge
- spray varnish
- sponge brush
- stick on felt circles
Step 2: Cut Out Boxes
To begin, cut the cereal boxes to the size of your ceramic tiles. You can do this by measuring around the tile on one piece of the box with a pen, and cut out the square.
Step 3: Assemble the Coaster
Now, grab your sponge brush and a ceramic tile and brush on some Mod Podge on top. Then, place the square, and layer on another round of Mod Podge on top to seal. Let dry.
As an added bonus, you can add a layer of spray varnish on top for added protection. That way, it will keep its shape and not cause a lot of wear and tear.
Step 4: Add Felt Circles
Then, just finish off with some felt circles on each corner of the tile!
Step 5: Done and Ready to Use!
Ready to use, these cereal box coasters will make ultimate conversation starters at your next gathering! These also make great gifts for any occasion (birthday / wedding / holiday / etc.)!
I used Hungry Jack, Little Bites, Luigi Italian Ices, and Popsicle Brand for my coasters. What will you use on your coasters?
