When it comes to useful craft projects, you can’t go wrong with coasters. They’re perfect for protecting and decorating your beloved tables, counters, and desks. Plus, DIY coaster ideas are super easy to make—so you can cure that crafting itch when it hits! For my latest project, I used Darice craft feathers in a set of coasters inspired by nature. And thanks to Darice’s glass tiles, they’re perfectly heat safe. Here’s how to make them.
- Darice 4 x 4 inch Square Cork Tiles
- Darice 4 x 4 Square Glass Tiles
- 4 x 4 Paper Squares
- Darice Almond Pheasant Feathers
- Mod Podge
- Liquid Gilding (Pen or Bottle)
- Darice All-Purpose Craft Scissors
- Darice Paint Brushes
Don’t have liquid gilding? Spray paint or acrylic paint works just fine.
Step 7. Once the Mod Podge has dried, apply liquid gilding to the glass. This will conceal the dried Mod Podge in between the layers. Depending on your style, you can add random splashes of liquid gilding, draw straight brush strokes (like I did), or make a clean border. It’s totally up to you.
