DIY St. Patrick’s Day Coasters

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011


No St. Patrick’s Day is complete with out a good Irish beer! Why not celebrate in style with these shamrock inspired coasters?! Substitute with sparkling cider for little ones and everyone can join in the fun!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Color Printer
Paper
Blotter paper or thick cardstock
Spray Adhesive
Craft Knife

INSTRUCTIONS
To make these printables more coaster-like, simply print template onto regular text weight paper then glue them to a thicker cardstock with a spray adhesive. I use thick blotter paper or watercolor paper which can be found at any art supply store.

Once glued together, using a craft knife, carefully trim out each coaster along solid grey line. If printed with an ink jet printer be warned that the ink may bleed when dampened. An alternative is to either print with a color laser printer or have them laminated. Sláinte!

Happy Monday to you all! I wanted to start off the week with some pretty Etsy inspiration. From top: Sweet Alain teardrop earrings from Elephantine, inexpensive and beautiful printable gift tags from the Bella Card Co., charming purple felted acorns from Fairy Folk, and lastly, a set of 5 engraved doily birch coasters from Uncommon – brilliant!



Slip On Coasters

I’m completely crushing on these coasters from Dimmalimm Home. A convenient way to protect your furniture without the hassle of asking people to use a coaster. Plus, they’re so pretty, you’re guests will be thrilled to use them. Just slip them on before the party and you’ve got instant decor as well!

These coasters are made of beautifully muted felt and come in either a Citrus pattern or Hibiscus style. Be sure to check out the Dimmalimm Home Shop, it’s well worth the visit.



Canvas Coasters

I’m loving these canvas coasters by Mekala of The Tie That Binds. They come with four different love sayings on each coaster or you can get a custom design. These would make for a sweet detail for a wedding or anniversary. I love how the cream of the canvas works with the red and black illustrations, it all looks so rich and luxurious!

Happy Halloween everyone and have a fun weekend! xoxo
