Christmas Scrapbook Paper Drink Coasters

What to do when you realize you've misplaced your holiday coasters and thanks to these crazy times, shopping for new ones isn't an option. Raid your craft bins and make some!



These fun ornament-shaped Christmas scrapbook paper drink coasters are so easy to make and most, if not everything you need to make them can be found at the dollar store.

Decoupage Scrapbook Paper Christmas Coasters

They are not difficult to make and with the proper sealer, there is no risk of ruining the decoupage coasters. They have cork bottoms which help prevent them from sliding and protects furniture from unwanted water rings and scratches.

The larger 4-inch diameter unfinished wood ornaments come in a package of four for a whopping $1.25 a package. Initially, I bought them back in the Fall to use for their intended purpose but here we are - I needed coasters more. Thankfully, I had purchased two packages to make a set of eight coasters for our living room.

How To Make The Decoupage Christmas Coasters

You'll need 4-inch unfinished wood ornaments and like I mentioned earlier, I found mine at the dollar store. Alternatively, I found these 4-inch wood ornaments on Amazon.



You'll also need festive paper to decoupage onto the ornaments. Small 6 x 6-inch scrapbook paper booklets are the perfect size print for the coasters. I found mine at Michaels for buy one get one free. I've also seen some at Walmart and the dollar store.

You'll also need thin cork either by the roll, in sheets, or 4-inch circles. I used 1/4-inch thick cork that I had on hand but found it a little thicker than I would have liked. Try and get thinner cork if you can.



If using sheets, trace the circle of the wood ornament onto the cork with a pencil. You can cut the cork at this point with a sharp retractable craft knife or move onto the next step and cut them later. It really doesn't matter but I found it easier to cut the cork once it was glued to the ornament.

Apply a generous amount of clear grip waterproof Gorilla glue to the bottom of the wood ornament or top of the cork (doesn't matter) and set inside your pencil marks. Press firmly for good adhesion and let the glue cure before cutting the cork.

While the glue is curing you can carefully paint the stem of the coaster ornaments in whatever color you'd like. I chose to paint mine a metallic silver.

Now you'll notice in the photo below that I haven't cut the cork on my coasters yet.



What I Would Have Done Differently

Don't do what I did and wait until after the decoupage step to cut the cork. It would have been far easier to trim the scrapbook paper had the cork been cut beforehand.

At this point, you can precut the scrapbook paper to fit the ornament by tracing the ornament shape and cutting them out beforehand.



Or you could do what I did and simply brush the Mod Podge onto the tops of the wood ornaments with a foam brush and set the sheets of small scrapbook paper on top. Use a scraper tool or old credit card to remove any air bubbles. Check for any areas around the edges that may need more Mod Podge.



NOTE: After the Mod Podge is dry, you will need either Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge or Outdoor Mod Podge to seal the tops with a water-resistant barrier. Alternatively, you could brush or spray the tops with a durable clear coat. Apply 2-3 coats of the protective finish, allowing it to completely dry between coats. 



When the last protective coat is dry, flip the ornaments upside down on your work surface and trim the paper with a sharp retractable craft knife.



That's it, you now have a cute festive set of holiday drink coasters! Read the label on your sealer to see the recommended cure time before using the coasters.

  7. Love these coasters! I used to make ceramic tile coasters with Mod Podge and then a clear sealer spray, but I found them to finish kind of tacky to the touch. Do you find a coat of the dishwasher safe Mod Podge finishes better?

    1. Hi Alexandra, I'm glad you like the coasters! I found the dishwasher safe Mod Podge dried perfectly without any tackiness whatsoever. The key is doing a few thin coats and letting them dry thoroughly between coats.
