DIY Painted Cork Coasters
Somehow we’re always short on coasters. I’m not to sure how this happens since I remember us having around 10 at one time. I decided to solve this problem by making some simple, festive painted cork coasters. I first painted the cork solid red. Then I cut a heart out of paper to use as a template and used a pencil to trace the heart shape on the coasters. I mixed fine gold glitter and matte mod podge in a bowl and painted this onto the cork. After it dried I painted a second coat. This is a great way to add glitter to things without it getting everywhere and sticking to everything.
It’s such a simple project that would be great to do with kids and the design possibilities are endless. I’m thinking I may need to paint a set for each holiday!

Thanks so much! Isn’t it weird how they always seem to disappear?
Wonderful idea. Valentines is just around the corner and this is a perfect gift.

OWao this are very nice.
These are adorable. Quick question: I’d like to do something like this for a wedding and I really don’t want guests covered in glitter! When you did the second coat was it just modpodge or modpodge and glitter? Thanks so much. Really great stuff !
Thanks Sarah! The second coat was with the Mod Podge and glitter mixture. The Mod Podge makes it like a glue and the glitter won’t rub off on you or your guests ;)
