Trim Holiday Napkin with Paper Cutter
I spent another $1.00 on some cute napkins at the Dollar Tree. I cut them with my old fashioned paper cutter to fit the tiles. After I cut the napkins, the napkin easily peeled apart. I only used one ply of the napkins.
Use White Glue for Decoupaging
I squirted some white glue on each of 4 tiles.
Tip: Dilute white school glue with water.
Use foam brush to smooth white glue
Then spread the glue around with a foam brush.
Apply napkins to tiles
I gently laid each of the napkins on a tile, then carefully spread more glue around to seal the top of the Santa Coasters.
After applying several coats of glue, letting each coat dry thoroughly, I then coated each coaster with several coats of water based polycrylic.
Apply cork pads to back of tile coasters
For another $1.00 at the dollar tree, I got these little cork stick-on cork pads.
I placed one cork pad on each corner of all of the tiles.
