DIY Tissue Paper Coasters

To make these Tissue Paper Coasters, you will need these supplies:

DIY Tissue Paper Coasters

Lightly sand the wooden coasters (especially the edges), if necessary.

Use a wide brush to paint a thin coat of Mod Podge on the top of the coaster. Place a square of tissue paper on the coaster and press it down lightly with your finger. Place part the next piece of tissue paper over the top of the previous piece. Repeat the process until the entire coaster is covered, and I recommend leaving larger pieces hanging over the edges.

Paint another thin coat of Mod Podge over the tissue paper and let it dry completely. Try not to paint over it too much, or the tissue paper colors will bleed.

If you are using Mod Podge Ultra, spray a thin coat over the coaster and place the tissue paper down as mentioned. Once you are done, spray the coaster again and let it dry. No need to use a brush! Be sure to rinse out the Mod Podge Ultra nozzle completely afterward to keep it from clogging up.

Brush some Mod Podge around the edges of the coaster and fold the tissue paper around to the bottom. Press it down well and then brush a coat of Mod Podge over the top and let it dry completely.

After the Mod Podge is dry, turn the coaster over. Use some scissors or a craft knife to cut away any excess tissue paper.

Mod Podge itself is NOT waterproof, so you will need to spray a coat or two of clear sealer over the coasters. However, Mod Podge Ultra IS waterproof, so you won't need any kind of sealer at all once it's dry.

I love how all of the coasters look cohesive as a set, but they are all so different on their own! You could make so many different sets just by changing the colors!
