DIY – Mermaid Tail Coasters

I love these DIY coasters I spotted on Parties for Pennies blog.  The ombre glitter effect reminds me of a mermaid’s tail!

Not to mention that this DIY is incredibly easy and quick to put together.  Keep reading for the play by play…

What you’ll need:

cork

mod podge

large glitter

Steps:

1| Start by using another coaster to trace an outline.

2| Cut it out.

3| With a paint brush, start covering one side of the coaster with mod podge.

4| Continue to cover the entire area.

5| I decided to do an ombre effect, so I added a greenish-gold glitter to a fourth of the coaster then three other sequential colors. Just pour the glitter on & it will stick to the coaster.

6| Once you’re finished, let this dry completely (overnight or for at least a few hours). Once it’s dry, cover with a generous amount of mod podge (just the side with the glitter). Allow this to completely dry.
