Step 1: Gather Supplies

You'll need coasters. I got mine from Menards for .30. You can create a set of 4 easily!! You'll also need wet glue, a paint/foam brush, felt pieces, clear sealer (I'm using fast drying polyurethane) to finish - if you don't have this you can use Mod Podge. Finally you'll need die cuts, vinyl cut-outs or a sharpie!

Step 2: Finish Up

If you're using die cuts:

1. Add a tiny bit of wet glue to adhere your diecuts to the coaster and let dry

2. Once your die cut has dried - add Mod Podge or Clear Sealer on top of the entire coster - let dry

3. Add some felt to the bottom of the coaster to prevent scratching the surface where it sits.

If you're using Vinyl:

1. Adhere your vinyl to the coaster (see video)

2. Add Mod Podge or Clear Sealer on top of entire coaster and let dry

3. Add some felt to the bottom of the coaster to prevent scratching the surface where it sits.

If you're using a Sharpie:

1. Draw your desired shape, name or design on top of the coaster - let air dry

2. Add Mod Podge or Clear Sealer on top of the entire coster - let dry

3. Add some felt to the bottom of the coaster to prevent scratching the surface where it sits.

    It would be really fun to make one of these for everyone at a Christmas party and then let them take it home with them at the end of the night.
