Family Coasters {DIY}

DIY Coasters:


We have been in need of some good coasters for about, ummm.... 7 years!
I saw some DIY coasters done by Lindsay and Kara.  
That is when I thought, "I'm going to do this!"
What you need:
Family pics
Coasters (dollar store)
Modge Podge
possibly a Sanding Block
Scissors

I started by cutting the pictures to size.
Then I put a thin layer of modge podge on the coaster and placed the picture on top.
I applied a thin layer of modge podge (going in the same direction) onthe picture.  LET DRY!

Once dry, I applied another layer of modge podge in the opposite direction.  LET DRY!

I sanded the edges with my block to make them even and smooth.


Voila!  They are done and perfect.



Easy-Peezy!  Let me know if you make some coasters!!!
