I’ve been remiss at adding any projects. I apologize (yes, all the normal excuses-work is crazy, travel, etc). Also, I couldn’t post these until after I actually gave them to my stepmom for her birthday (this month) and my mom’s birthday as well (March).
As I posted before, coasters make fantastic gifts. Wanted to share the photo ones I did for presents. These are pets past and present, so they’re significant to my family. I took originally color photos and made them black and white (little classier).

For my mom I used family photos so I’ll share a couple on here as well…

For Christmas (yes, this is a crazy late post but not everyone got their presents right away and I couldn’t post it on here and have people see beforehand now could I?) I did dog and cat silhouette coasters for everyone (of course depending on what furry critters they had at home). Now, these also make great presents otherwise, and I’ll post in a bit some that I did with photographs as well. Takes a little time, but otherwise not too expensive…
To see more how to….
Besides the hunting coasters I did some additional ones at Christmas, nice and bright for a pop of color. But they’d make a great birthday or housewarming gift as well!
For these I again used the tiles from HomeDepot (14 cents each!), felt backers, ModPodge, scrapbook paper and some fabric scraps. All sorts of possible combinations!
I’m sure a lot of you have seen various coaster projects on Pinterest…I did my own this year for a present for my dad (who yes, is a hunter). White tiles from Home Depot (13 cents each). I got the decals again from ArtScraps (that random store nearby me) although really you can use anything your heart desires, used some modpodge and for the deer painted on some prints…I did use an acrylic sealant spray over them as well. The felt backers you can also find at Home Depot.
