This is the resin I used for this project:

FX Poxy: ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.

Here is the video tutorial so you can see exactly how I made it:


1.  I dug through my scrapbook paper stash and pulled out these two.  I’m going for a vintage-y look.

2.  I mixed one ounce of resin.

3.  I added some red resin pigment to the resin and mixed it up.

4.  I poured the mixture into the mold.

5.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it sit a minimum of 12 hours.

6.  Once cured, I removed it from the mold.

Now we have a red disc! 

7.  I cut a small rectangle out of the music note paper, for the stem.

8.  I cut out a triangle, for the tree.

This is how the tree comes together.

9.  I brushed Mod Podge onto the whole face of the coaster.

10.  I brushed Mod Podge onto the back of the stem.

11.  I put the stem onto the coaster and brushed Mod Podge over it.

12.  I brushed Mod Podge on the back of the triangle.

13.  I laid it down on the coaster.

14.  I put a little Mod Podge onto my finger and rubbed it over the tree and the stem.  That is to rub out any bubbles.

15.  I brushed more Mod Podge over everything.  I made sure to brush it from every angle, making sure to get all the edges of the paper.

16.  I took little seed beads and added them to the wet Mod Podge.

17.  I took bugle beads and created a little star at the top.

18.  When everything completely dried, I mixed more resin and poured it over the coaster.  I used my stir stick to make sure it went to the edges.

19.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it sit a minimum of 12 hours.

That’s it!!!  Now you have a new vintage style coaster!

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe and Happy Holidays!
