DIY Golden Cork Coasters

How was everyone's weekend? I wish I could have seen all the fun costumes this weekend, but alas, I stayed in and was lazy. SO needed sometimes!!

The hubs and I watched creepy movies and TV shows instead. (Dracula!!!! swoon...)

Anyway, I have to admit that while Halloween is a lot of fun, I am very much looking forward to Christmas! Already went and bought a bunch of colorful Christmas fabric for  some place mats and can't wait to start making them. :D Anyone else itching to get started on Christmas crafts?

But until then, I wanted to share something else I made with you. I bought some pretty scrap book paper the other day and decided to make some coasters with it!

  Supplies:
  • Cork sheets
  • Scrap book paper
  • Clear gloss paint/brush
  • Scissors
  • Felt
Instructions:
  1. Measure your cork and paper to 4" x 4" and cut (4) of these.
  2. Measure your felt to 3.5" x 3.5" and cut (4).
  3. Apply a layer of gloss to your cork pieces and lay the paper on top. Flip over and do the same with your felt. Place these under a heavy book to dry.
  4. Once dry, apply another coat of gloss over the top and sides and allow to dry.

Now you're done!
