Welcome to the first 2014 post at Craft A Spell! I wish you all a happy new year! I hope 2014 brings you great and wonderful things.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I got the big present that was on my Christmas wish list - a KitchenAid Stand Mixer! I was so surprised! I didn't think I was going to get it. My parents even gave it to me in the color I wanted - cranberry.
I've got a few projects to share with you this month and a number of them have the same theme - coasters! My first is a snowflake coaster.
I bought half a box (40) of cheap, white ceramic tiles. I believe they were $.16 each. Before getting started, I washed and dried them all off since they were dusty.
Then I cut little squares out of a cork roll I had to make feet for the tiles so they wouldn't scratch a surface.
I hot glued them on the bottom of the tile.
Then, using a snowflake hole punch I had, I punched snowflakes out using silver, white, and light blue vinyl. I stuck them on the coaster and then coated it in glitter Martha Stewart decoupage. Here is a close up.
I positioned them so that two matched (all I did was switch the position of the white and silver). It was a very easy project!
The longest part was waiting for the decoupage to dry and cure. Trust me, you want to wait!
Stay tuned for more easy coaster ideas!
