Having nice get-togethers with the friends of yours and family is generally a great time. Whether you are getting together for a vacation, a particular event such as a baby shower or maybe shower, or perhaps merely an enjoyable summertime barbecue you generally have leftovers. And by scraps I mean ornamental paper plates and napkins. When you’ve a gathering for the 4th of July you’ve red, blue and white decor so when you’ve a baby shower, you’ve really pastel colors and napkins. You do not need to throw these napkins out. Make use of a recycling technique and craft a coaster from them. This is such a neat craft. You do not even need to allow it to be simply to recycle, though you can allow it to be for an enjoyable gift too.

Here is what you will need:

* Mod Podge

* A Square Tile dimensions of the choice of yours

* Paintbrush

* Decorative Napkin

* Polyurethane

You begin by using the Mod Podge of yours and brushing it on tile, which includes the sides. You then shoot your pretty napkin (only a single layer) and center the picture upon the tile. After this you press the napkin all over so it adheres on the Mod Podge. You make this happen across the edges too. Should you end up with wrinkles or maybe the napkin isn’t straight, that’s ok, it simply provides it with more design and definition. After 5 minutes or even longer, you are able to tear away the extra areas of the napkin on every side. In case you do not wish the napkin to stay on the sides since you tore something unevenly, you are able to sand it down which means you don’t see the napkin. Once again, this is up for you.

After all this is completed you are able to use 3 coats of polyurethane, needless to say you’ve to allow it to dry out in between each layer first. When that’s dry you can apply a portion of cork or felt on the reverse side of the tile. This helps stay away from scratches on the table of yours whenever the coaster is being used. Again, after all dry, rest the cold glass of yours on the new coaster of yours.
