Somehow we’re always short on coasters. I’m not to sure how this happens since I remember us having around 10 at one time. I decided to solve this problem by making some simple, festive painted cork coasters. I first painted the cork solid red. Then I cut a heart out of paper to use as a template and used a pencil to trace the heart shape on the coasters. I mixed fine gold glitter and matte mod podge in a bowl and painted this onto the cork. After it dried I painted a second coat. This is a great way to add glitter to things without it getting everywhere and sticking to everything.

It’s such a simple project that would be great to do with kids and the design possibilities are endless. I’m thinking I may need to paint a set for each holiday!

    Thanks so much! Isn’t it weird how they always seem to disappear?
