Beer Label Coasters:
I had too much time on my hands when I found myself thirsty for the sweet taste of Michigan. So, I took action to remedy three birds with the same bandage.
• synthetic brush
• felt stickers
• floor tiles
• beer labels
Drink a six-pack of beer.
(If you are a person on a tight schedule, like I am; I recommend combining step 1 with step 2)
Drive to the home improvement store.
Purchase synthetic brush, felt stickers, glue, clear gloss polyurethane and tiles of various size and color to match your labels. My tiles range from 3½ - 4 inches.
Peel label off beer bottle and glue to chosen tile. I used the brush to ensure an even spread of glue and applied pressure with a rag for a clean and flat adhesion of label to the tile. Let glue dry.
Coat label and tile with a coat of polyurethane and let dry. This will protect as well as make it look beautiful. Let dry and repeat step five to your liking. Personally, I did two coats of varnish on my coasters.
Step 6: Apply felt stickers to each corner on the back side of the tile. This will protect your furniture from being scratched by the coaster. (To be even more resourceful, use a straight edge to chop a wine cork and apply glue to adhere to the four corners of coaster)
Enjoy your coasters!
and in all serious, do not drink and drive. Be responsible!
