Washi Tape Coasters

Hello everyone! It’s Barbara from Chase the Star! In the warmer months I like to decorate in fun vibrant shades especially when entertaining, so I dug up an old set of inexpensive coasters and updated them with paint and washi tape to give them a new look for summer!

This basic set of coasters have been with us for a few years, they’ve worked very well!

In order to give them a new look I gathered my materials:

Washi Tape (I used 4 rolls)

Acrylic paint

2 Foam applicator brushes

Exacto knife

Mod Podge (I used the “Dishwasher Safe” formula)

Step 1:

First things first, always start with a clean surface! I wiped the coasters and holder clean. Using one of the applicator brushes I gave the coasters a few coats of the paint. I went with ‘Vivid Orange’ by Folkart, it’s so bright–I love it!

Step 2:

Next, I applied the washi tape in a repetetive pattern to the top and bottom of each coaster, and trimmed the excess off with the exacto knife.

Step 3:

Lastly I added a couple of coats of Mod Podge to seal the Washi Tape in. I chose the ‘Dishwasher Safe’ formula because although I doubt I’ll run the coasters through the dishwasher, I’m sure they will get their fair share of moisture, after all, that’s their job!

I used the same process for the coaster holder.

I think this will make a great addition to my outdoor parties this summer!
