Glitter coasters to Impress your guests
To help this DIY glitter coasters, your guests or family members keep their drinks directly – no more guessing whose drink is whose.
Hello, Podgey people! I’m Carissa from Creative Green Living and I’m thrilled to be here and share my project with you. In casa Green Living I try to make that the items that have a longer lifespan, which means instead of Christmas crafts, I try, in the winter of tinkering, I break-out at the end of November and keep until February.
These sparkly DIY coasters have this type of perseverance – what I love! To see it’s difficult, as it is used for the Christmas cocoa, new year's eve cocktails and Valentine’ hot;s treated. Of course, if glitter is your jam, this could make a great year round coasters also.
By giving each coaster a different color, you can help your guests or family members keep their drinks directly – no more guessing whose drink is whose. The other thing I love about these coasters is that they are EASY. Ready to get started? Let’s do it!

1. To create the pattern, tape a pattern on your coasters. I was taping three widths of masking tape-horizontal stripe on the lower half of the roller coaster.
2. Brush on the Mod-hodgepodge. I used the Glitter formula for this part, as I like how it interacts with the glitter.
3. Sprinkle glitter on the Mod Podged areas. Dump the excess glitter onto a piece of paper back into the glass.
4. You peel the tape. You’ll want to way to do this right, so that the Mod-hodgepodge doesn’t bond to the tape and then peel the pieces of your project later, when it's dry. Set aside your coasters to dry.
5. Prevent you from potting to seal all over your house by brushing a layer of Mod smorgasbord on the Shine. I used the Glitter formula, but you could the dishwasher safe formula, if you just want a simple appearance.
fixed formula, more water and temperature resistant than standard Mod hodgepodge of formulas, which is why I like it for roller coasters. If you like the Sparkle formula, like I did, go back over it with a coat of dishwasher safe formula after the spray coat is dry. Let it dry for at least a whole day before using.
