Glass Coasters

Standard

SUPPLIES

Glass Tile
Felt
Glue

This project was spurred by the simple fact the girls wanted to do it
We were in Lowe’s and looking at the clearance items when we should have been looking at wall hangers. The girls liked the tile and asked what I could do with them.

For starters we chose the tile with rounded edges. This looks so much nicer than the flat, unfinished style.

At home I pulled out some black fleece and cut into squares 1/4 smaller than the tile. Looking back I realize I should have used a rotary cutter to do it.

Next i glued the felt with craft glue.

Instant set of 6 coasters for $2. They slide very easy when pushed but stay in place when being used.

I have some ideas for next time, I’ll let you know how it goes.

I have been married for 20 years and have 3 children. My oldest is 20 and currently in the National Guard. My daughters are 15 and 11 and involved in everything. I believe life is difficult enough, that we can find ways to make the everyday just a little easier and perhaps even more simple. I love to cook, shop and make things with the kids.
