DIY Scrabble Letter Coasters

Over the weekend I made coasters out of scrabble letters. I had a house warming party and wanted to bring a gift. Coasters are the perfect gift, and hand making them is much more personal, not to mention cheaper.

All you need is a paintbrush, scrabble letters, cork, Mod Podge, glue, and an x acto knife, or scissors. You can buy everything on Amazon.

Step one: squirt some glue onto a piece of cork.

Step two: use the paint brush to smooth out the glue and start placing down the scrabble tiles. (Don't forget to wash your brush afterwards!) I used four tiles across and four tiles down. You can add more tiles for bigger coasters. I wrote out: stir, lime, salt and rim. I made four coasters in total, write out anything you want! They don't have to be about drinks, love, cute, your initials - use your imagination! 

Step three: after letting the glue dry, use the x acto knife (or scissors) to cut the cork, around the tiles.

Step four: drip some Mod Podge on top of the coaster and use your paint brush to smooth it. Make sure the Mod Podge gets into any spaces between letters.

Step five: let the Mod Podge dry and you're done. 

Perfectly Glossed Kisses,
