Fall Leaf Coasters

Last week, I came across a project on Inner Child Fun that I immediately knew Little Crafter and I were going to need to try!  Valerie and her daughter made the most adorable  Fall Leaf Coasters using just a few simple supplies…including Mod Podge {which as you probably know has been the crafting material of choice here in the Artsy Family lately!}  We had everything on hand except for the tiles themselves, so after a quick trip to Home Depot, we were ready to whip up a few of our own.  Here they are:

All you need for this project is:

Square white tiles, available at your local home improvement store for a really affordable price…these bad boys were 16 cents a piece…

Tissue paper in assorted colors: we stuck with fall colors, but our inspiration included blues and pinks and other colors too…totally up to you and your little crafters.

Mod Podge: any formula will do, but we chose to use Sparkle.  After all, as LC and I always say, “Glitter makes everything better!”

The process is super-complicated.  Are you ready for this?  Cut out leaf shapes, attach them to the tiles using Mod Podge, and then give the whole thing a coat of Mod Podge once they’re dry.  Simple, but oh-so-adorable, aren’t they?!  And oh-so-doable for even the littlest of helpers, which is what I love best about them.  Well, that and the fact that the project cost me a total of 64 cents.

Don’t you think they’re the perfect compliment to a nice mug of hot cider or a pumpkin spice latte?  Me too.

I’m already thinking of the holiday possibilities…snowflakes?  Trees?  Snowmen?  A tissue paper nativity?  Hmm.  Maybe that one’s a bit ambitious.  Anyway, thanks to Inner Child Fun for the inspiration!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Very cute! We found a box of old white tiles in a closet when we moved into our house, so I could cut 16 cents off the cost right there. Sounds like a perfect project for the kids to make for presents for the relatives this year!
