Monogrammed Coasters

These monogrammed coasters can be made to match any decor and would make a thoughtful hostess gift for the upcoming holiday parties.

What You Need:

  • Round  Cork Coasters, 4" diameter (can be purchased at craft stores or cut out of a sheet of cork)
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Monogram Letters Cut From Scrapbook Paper (sized no larger than 3.5")
  • Mod Podge
  • Glue
  • Acrylic Sealer
How to Make It:
  • Place coasters on reverse side of scrapbook paper. Trace the shapes and cut out circles (if you have a die-cutting machine, you can also cut a 4" circle).
  • Glue paper circles onto coaster. For our project, we used 2 coordinating papers and cut a 4" circle from one and a slightly smaller circle from the other.

  • Center the monogram letters in the middle of the coaster and glue down.
  • Next apply several layers of Mod Podge over surface of coaster, allowing each layer to dry completely before applying another (Mod Podge goes on white, but dries clear)
  • Once Mod Podge dries, apply a good coat of acrylic sealer to help waterproof the coasters.
