Easy DIY Coasters

Target’s Opalhouse line is always such a jaw dropper. The combinations of rich colors and beautiful patterns are always spot on. I have a thing for all things citrus, and the line of orange dinnerware from Opalhouse™ does not disappoint! I snagged a few pieces for my kitchen, including these orange printed napkins. With ceramic coasters from the Dollar Spot and a few craft supplies I already had on hand I created these coasters to match. Let me show you how!

You’ll need:

Pull apart the layers of the napkin to separate them.

You need just the printed top layer. Cut along the folded lines to separate into four pieces.

Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge on the top of the coaster.

Carefully place the napkin on top. Gently smooth it out using your fingers.

It should dry to the touch fairly quickly. Flip the coaster over and trim the excess napkin off the edges. Leave just enough for the napkin to go over the sides. On the corners, make a diagonal cut so it isn’t too bulky when you glue them down.

Add Mod Podge and gently press the napkin over the sides. Press down the corners last.

Wait for the Mod Podge to dry completely then brush a layer of Mod Podge over the coaster.

Set the coasters aside for a few days and then spray them with an acrylic sealer to finish them.

It has been years since I’ve decoupaged anything with napkins, but I couldn’t be happier with the results! The dark blue tumblers really make the blue in the coasters pop.

Do you go crazy over a certain color or design in your kitchen? Please share because I’d love to know!
