Today we are going to show you how to make these fabulous Crown Coasters, a fun...easy...and useful project for you to create. Who doesn't love and need coasters and these glass creations are just perfect for every day or for parties, and they make great gifts too! As an alternative you can also put hangers on the back and use them as wall art! This project is an Ikea Hack, as I've taken a product from Ikea and re-purposed it, in order to create something entirely different. So fun! I've used some wonderful Vintage Crown Images here, but of course you could vary it and use whatever you like, the possibilities are endless. With the all the wonderful images on The Graphics Fairy, there is no limit to what you can create.. so have fun! This is a very inexpensive project that results in a high end look. So lets get started on it, shall we?!
Royal Crown Coasters
You will need decorative cardstock, your printed images from The Graphics Fairy sized, felt, scissors, a brush for applying the glue of your choice (I used Matte Mod Podge) and the 4 inch glass candle holders that are available at Ikea for $.79 each...they are awesome...1/2 inch thick and are just gorgeous for these coasters.
Here is a close up and the model number so you know exactly what to look for when you go there.
Now cut your image out...
brush the center with a very thin coat of Mod Podge (even though it is white to start...it dries clear)...
now cut your second circle out of your decorative cardstock...
once again, apply the glue to the edge and...
apply the card stock.
Time to trace the circle onto your felt and cut it out.
Time to cover the back with glue and apply your felt backing. Allow to dry. Now if you want to use these to hang on the wall...you can apply a wooden 4 inch circle and put a hanger on the back.
You can wrap them up with a pretty bow and they are ready to give as a gift or...
get them ready to serve your guests.
They truly are stunning.
Hope you have a chance to snatch some of these glass pieces and create your own artistic glass coasters or wall decor.
Thank you once again for allowing me the honor of sharing this project with you...if you ever want to drop by to say hi...I am always hanging out over at The Cottage Market.
