DIY Hostess Gifts: Coaster Set
By Virginia Bittinger
The holiday season is fast approaching, and holiday season means party season. A hostess gift is always a nice way to show how much you appreciate being invited to the party. As with so many things, it’s the thought that counts, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a hostess gift. In fact, the most special gifts are those that you make yourself.
Here are a few ideas for inexpensive and easy hostess gifts you can make.
- 4 inch x 4 inch tiles; natural stone or ceramic
- Decorative Napkins
- Mod Podge
- Felt Pads
Napkins come in 2, 3, or 4 ply. Separate the layers and discard all but the top printed layer.
Using a soft paintbrush, add a layer of Mod Podge to the tile.
Lay the napkin onto the tile and add another coat of Mod Podge over the napkin. Make sure to use a soft paintbrush so the napkin won’t tear.
Once the Mod Podge is dry, gently tear away the excess napkin form the edges of the tile.
Add 2 more coats of Mod Podge to seal the coasters.
Add felt pads to the bottom of each coaster.
Tie twine or ribbon around the set of coasters for a nice presentation.
