I have been busy around here getting started on my laundry room makeover and working on my project for an upcoming copy cat challenge party that Debbie from Debbiedoo's Blogging and Blabbing will be hosting in a few days. In the midst of all this, I have found the time to work on a couple of small projects and I'd like to share one of those with y'all today.
I had these little terra cotta trays in my craft stash and decided to turn them into drink coasters. Here are the supplies that I used:
Terra cotta trays, scrapbook paper, paint, Modge Podge, and rubber bumpers.
All I did was trace the bottom of my trays onto my scrapbook paper and cut the circles out. Then I painted my trays black, modge podged the scrapbook paper to the inside of the trays and added another layer of modge podge to the top of the paper just to seal them in there real good. Then I stuck my rubber bumpers onto the bottom of the trays to protect my furniture. These are self adhesive so no messy glue needed! Then I finished them off with a quick spray of sealer because I wanted to make sure that any sweating glass that sits on them wouldn't cause my scrapbook paper to peel off. And here is the finished product:
And here's a picture showing the bumpers I used on the bottom:
I'm really pleased with how these turned out. They remind me of Mackenzie-Childs style, without the Mackenzie-Childs price, which I love! I'm linking this to some of the fabulous parties listed at the bottom of my blog. Please check them out for some great inspiration!
I bought several sheets of this scrapbook paper and I'm working on another project with the rest of it using this:
Any guesses on what I'm up to???
Until next time. . .
