• I ended up making two batches of Autumn Coasters. They were so easy to make, and I wanted to experiment a bit with the backings.

• Paint on a thin, even layer of Mod Podge on top of your tile.
• Make sure you have as few brush strokes as possible. Even though the Mod Podge does level-out, the spray used is a pretty high-gloss that shows all uneven strokes.
• Place your cut-outs on top of the wet Mod Podge to glue in place.
• Allow to dry completely.

• For my next set I clipped out enough different autumn leaves, acorns, etc from my colored card stock to make four different coasters that had the same type of theme and general lay-out. I didn’t watch matchy-match, but I did want coasters that went together.

• I laid out the cut-outs on all 4 coasters and made certain they looked like they “matched” while all being unique.
• The most difficult part of this application was remembering my layout. Since I didn’t have identical patterns, I did the following for each one:
• Paint layer of Mod Podge on the tile in a thin, even line.
• Attached my cutouts to glue in place.

• I did this four times – completing the underlay of Mod Podge and the cut-out attachments one tile at a time – instead of painting Mod Podge on all four tiles at once.

• Allow to dry completely.
• Place a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the dried cut-outs.

• When your coasters have dried completely, tape the back with painter tape. This will help avoid drips on the back of the coasters.

• In a well ventilated area outside of direct sunlight (I set up in the garage), place down a large garbage bag (this is to prevent sticking).
• Set the autumn coasters face up on top of the garbage bag.
• Place cardboard or some other barrier around the coasters as you will have some over-spray.
• Following the directions on the Dupli-Color Ceramic Clear Engine can, shake well for 1 minute.
• Spray a thin coat on all your coasters.
• Allow to dry (15 minutes)
• Spray a second, thin coat, allow to dry (15 minutes).
• Spray a third, heavier coat, allow to dry completely (I left them there overnight).

• Remove painters tape from the back of your autumn coasters.

• The autumn coasters are now technically complete. However, I like backings since have wood furniture.

• I tried three different backing materials:

Cork The most expensive option. Cork is prime for heat and durability. It is difficult to cut as it is much thicker than the other two options I tried.

Felt: The cheapest solution. It is anti-scratch although it picks up dust and direct. Simple to cut and adhere, it is the classic solution.

Liner: Hubby bought me a kitchen liner to try when he was at Big Lots. It is fairly inexpensive. I admit this was my favorite solution. It was easy to cut and adhere and is non-skid on the tabletop (these are the ones I kept for us in our family room). An interesting positive and negative – when I stack these, they “stick” to one another. That means I do not need to find something to store them in, nor do I need to use twine or a ribbon to keep them in a pile. The negative is… they stick to one another. The first time I had to pull to separate these, I nearly had a heart attack. hehe I thought that I had not allowed them to dry long enough (which was silly, it was 3 days later)!!

Materials Used for Backing:

Cork
Liner
Felt
Self-Healing Cutting Mat
Straight Edge
Cutter
Mod Podge

• On top of a self healing mat, lay out the felt and tile.
• Turn the tile over or place flat with bottom down.
• Using your rolling cutter, cut out four felt squares to match your four Autumn Coasters.
• Note: You can cut against the tile so you are not tracing lines, or trace lines using the tile and then cut. You can also use a straight edge to measure out the tile, and cut along the traced lines.

• On top of a self healing mat, lay out the cork.
• Measure out on the cork the size of your tile.
• Drawn lines according to the length and width of your tile. Use a marker or pencil or pen – use something that you can easily see the drawn lines to cut along.
• Using a straight edge and roller cutter or X-taco knife, cut along the lines. Make certain you use the straight edge to follow the lines as it is very easy to get off track!

• Since this is a spray-on, you can actually feel the attached cut-outs.They are not high enough to impact a can, bottle, glass, mug, etc when placed on top. In other words, nothing wiggles.
• These clean up easily! I have goobed coffee on them and just wiped them down with a wet dishrag.

  1. These are really cute! I wish I had stamps like that. And you could make them for every holiday or season! Oh the possibilities! 🙂

  2. Those are so cute. Visiting from Thoughts of Home today. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. These would make great hostess gifts and I think I just added some items to my Christmas gift list!

  4. These are adorable, and I love the fall colors! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday!

  5. This is awesome, I was looking into finding a sealant or product that can tolerate high heat, like hot tea/coffee mugs because I’ve seen people complained about the coasters sticking together or rings being left on the coaster from the mugs.

    Thank you
