Chalkboard Coasters and Tutorial

IMG_7848 Many of you have already seen these little chalkboard coasters I made. Just wanted to give the full tutorial in case any of you are up for making them. Cheers!   IMG_7830 Super Simple Project. Here is what you will need: 1. Chalkboard spray paint 2. Four ceramic tiles . . . use black if you can find them so chips in the paint won’t show. {Home Depot} 3.  Cork Board {Target sells a set of four boards for $4.00 . . . I had one left over so it’s now a jewelry holder . . more on that later!} 4.  Glue gun and glue 5.  Chalk 6.  Ribbon to tie them up if you are giving them away as gifts. IMG_7707   1. Spray tiles with chalkboard paint. Wait 24 hours and then put chalk all over them. Wipe clean with a cloth. IMG_7833 2. Trace tiles and cut out cork board to put on the bottom of each coaster.

IMG_7826                                                                                                            Or just as a place card IMG_7827IMG_7828IMG_7829IMG_7830                                                               They can also be used to label  your buffet.

IMG_7835IMG_7837IMG_7850 Of course a chalkboard coaster might not be the most absorbent coaster you will ever use, but with a stemmed glass or with all their other uses they sure are fun. And I am all about a good conversation piece at parties.
