How to Make Your Own Disney Coasters | Blogmas Day 6

Wednesday, 6 December 2017

It's been a while I've done a DIY blog post and they are probably one of my favourite posts to do. I thought blogmas would be the perfect time to get creative, so I have been racking my brain to see what I could come up with. I still had my Disney calendar from last year and some old Disney books, so I I gave making coasters a go. They turned out better than I was expecting, so I thought I'd do a DIY post on how to make them! If you're struggling to come up with stocking filler ideas, this would be perfect.

What you will need:
Blank wooden coasters
Modpodge
A Disney image of your choice
Foam sponge brush



Explaining how to make something isn't my strongest point, so I apologise if these steps make absolutely no sense! The coasters are extremely easy to make, so hopefully you can follow along!

1 Place the wooden square flat on top of the image you want to be on the coaster, make sure it is lined up perfectly. Draw around the coaster with a pencil, that way you can rub the lines out if they are still visible.  

2Cut around stencil you drew around the picture, being extra careful as you want it to line up perfectly when placed on the coaster.

3Using the foam brush, brush a thin layer of modpodge onto the wooden coaster. I use a foam sponge brush because it has a straight edge, that way it is easier to ensure that the modpodge is applied smoothly.

4Next, gently place the image straight onto the modpodge. I like to use another coaster to smooth the picture out and to flatten out any air bubbles.

5Leave it to dry for at least 10 minutes.

6Squeeze a few drops of the sparkle modpodge straight onto the picture and smooth it out with the sponge brush. It tends to dry quite quickly, so I normally apply 3 to 4 layers of modpodge every minute.  I like them to be extra sparkly.

7Make sure that you smooth the modpodge around the edges of the picture, that way it prevents it from peeling away from the coaster.

8Leave it to completely dry!


These really are quick and easy to make and they are a lovely gesture to give to someone as little gift. If you do make your own Disney coaster, please share your pictures with me!
