Lacy and sophisticated DIY coasters

Lacy and sophisticated DIY coastersWe all have that huge stash of scrap fabrics tucked away in our cupboards right? Bit of lace here, bit of calico there . . . all of it saved because you “might” want it one day.

These DIY coasters are a great project to put some of that fabric to use. Don’t leave it sitting in the drawers anymore! Time to bust it out and make something fantastic.lace coasters_1

You will need:

  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Coasters
  • Sponge brush
  • Scissors
  • Lacey fabric or other fabric scraps

Lacy and sophisticated DIY coastersI just love the simplicity and sophistication of these pretties. So simple to make but they will make quite a statement on your coffee table.

If you want to seal them further, use Minwax Polycrylic brush on or something clear and similar. Done!
