Looking for a fun fall craft project to make now that the season is just around the corner? Consider adding these glittered leaf coasters to your to-do list. They are perfect for use when entertaining guests throughout the season. This quick fall craft project is a breeze to put together! These coasters would be lovely for everyday use or to add an unexpected pop of glittery fall color to your table setting.
- Darice Wood Maple Leaves.
- Darice Extra Fine Glitter – I Used Gold, Copper, Lime Green and Luminous.
- Outdoor Mod Podge.
- Darice Foam Sponge.
- Darice 9 x 12″ Felt Piece.
- Permanent Marker.
- Hot Glue.
Using the foam brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over the entire surface of the leaf pieces. Sprinkle evenly with glitter and shake off any excess. Set the leaf pieces aside and allow to dry until set, about 20-30 minutes.
Apply a final layer of Mod Podge over the entire surface of each leaf. This will help form a nice, hard moisture barrier that will protect the coasters when in use. Set the pieces aside to dry for 72 hours before use to ensure the Mod Podge has cured completely.
When pieces are dry, carefully trace around the perimeter of the leaves onto the felt piece using the marker. Use scissors to cut about 1/4″ within the boundaries of the traced line. Create a felt leaf piece for each coaster. Affix a felt leaf piece to the back side of each coaster using the hot glue.
Your festive set of glittered fall craft leaf coasters is complete! These coasters combine pretty shimmer with functionality. Wouldn’t these also be fun used for place cards at a holiday table, or even just displayed simply in a pretty bowl?
With fall nearly upon us, I hope you are inspired to bring a touch of the season into your home with a handmade project.
