Making DIY Confetti Coasters
Make DIY confetti coasters for your next party or just for everyday. I use mine for everyday because they make me smile. The coasters are so pretty with the bold colorful confetti. You guys know I love to surround myself with color.
White Tile Coasters Decorated With Confetti
The coasters are inexpensive to make and take no time at all, less than 30 minutes (allowing for drying time). And……..you just have to smile when you look at them.
You guys know those bright little dots have my name all over them. Bold colors are right up there with chocolate on my list of favorite things. And this idea can be customized.
You know there is all kinds of confetti……champagne glass confetti, age related confetti, all kinds of confetti. Now to get to the project details.
How To Make Confetti Tile Coasters
Supplies for the Coaster project:
Confetti from Hobby Lobby (50% off coupon)
4 Ceramic Tiles from the local home improvement store
Cork or sticky cushion pads
A list of my must have DIY supplies can be found here on Petticoat Junktion.
Step 1. Apply Hard Coat Mod Podge to the ceramic tile.
Mod Podge brush is perfect for this step. I applied a pretty thick coat of Mod Podge to the tile. The brush with the short bristles makes applying the Mod Podge super easy.
Step 2. Sprinkle confetti onto the tiles.
It was kind of hard to get the confetti out of the bag so I poured it all into a box so I could pick up the little pieces.
I got a handful of confetti and sprinkled it on the tiles all willy-nilly. I left some of the confetti in layers just as it fell and some I spread out. The larger dots of confetti I laid on the coasters and worked around them with the smaller dots.
Step 3. Apply Hard Coat Mod Podge over the confetti.
Once the layer of confetti and Mod Podge is dry, coat the tile with several layers of Hard Coat Mod Podge allowing for drying time in between layers.
Step 4. Apply a layer of Gloss Mod Podge
You guys know I like the shiny stuff. I applied one layer of Gloss Mod Podge as the finishing touch. The confetti was shiny to start with but a little extra shine is always nice.
Step 5. Add table protector pads
Now we need to add something to the bottom of the tiles to protect the table. I had a roll of cork in my stash so that’s what I used for the coaster pads. I cut a small square of cork for each corner and glued them on using regular glue. Pre-cut adhesive pads would work great too.
Confetti Tile Coasters
Look at all that sparkle and shine. I would use these at my New Year’s Eve party. The guests would uh and ah over them.
Brings a big smile to my face. This little set is a gift.
These are so pretty you don’t even have to wrap them. Just tie a bow around them. I used turquoise burlap fabric.
I needed a snack after all that work. And I had to test the coaster before giving it as a gift.
Now I need to make a set for me. I ran out of tiles. Shopping time. (update….I made a set just for me)
I love the confetti so much I used it on a piece of furniture here……You’ll Never Believe What I Did With Confetti.
These coasters make great gifts and they won’t break the bank either. Your friends would love a set of coasters ( insert Kathy smiley face).Leave me a comment. Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow. Kathy
