Even though this is made as a coaster, think room decor! It would make a striking grouping as wall decor. It’s a great activity for kids and teens to work on with you!
Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:
Materials you will need:
2. I started by painting the disc black. I used multi-surface paints because of their durability.
3. Then I painted the hearts red. Remember to paint the edges and you may want to do two coats.
4. Once everything was dry, I came up with how I wanted the hearts placed.
5. I took glue and painted it on the backs of each of the hearts. I wanted enough for it to stick, but I didn’t want so much that it gushed out the edges. Then, I let everything dry.
So far so good! With the multi-surface paints, I don’t think I need to do any additional sealing.
6. I took out my cork and cut a piece larger than the coaster.
7. I used glue around the edges. The cork has adhesive on it, but I don’t know how durable that adhesive is. I like to give it a little extra support and strength by using a bead of glue at the edges.
8. I removed the paper backing that covers the adhesive. I placed the coaster on the adhesive side of the cork.
10. I trimmed off the excess with my craft knife.
11. I used a file/emery board to gently sand any rough edges on the cork.
12. Now it’s all finished! Yay!
