Go green this year by recycling old holiday cards or decorative paper into DIY coasters. These make nice gifts, favors or festive accents for your home!


  • Ceramic tile about 4¼ in. square

Step-By-Step Instructions:

Step 1

From recycled cards or decorative papers, cut a 4-in. square. (Project tip: Don’t be afraid to experiment with the shape of the decorative paper. Try circles, stars or diamond shapes!)

Step 2

Use sponge brush to apply a thin coat of decoupage glue to the top of the tile. Immediately adhere the paper square to the tile, centering the design. Let the glue dry.
