Summer Decoupage Concrete Coasters
Our airbnb is almost done. One of the things I knew that space needed was coasters for guests to use that will protect the furniture in our new space. I plan to leave the coasters out on the coffee table down there for people to grab and use during their stay!

Dollar Spot Coasters
So when I spotted some concrete coasters at Target’s Dollar Spot, I knew they were perfect to personalize for our space. I love shopping in the Dollar Spot because there are always so many on-trend items at such affordable prices. These coasters come in three different shapes — hex, round and square!

New Peaceful Hearts Paper Collection!
My new Peaceful Heart collection comes out tomorrow (June 16th) and I am so thrilled!! Peaceful Heart is full of warm and cozy colors plus beautiful embellishments, stickers, gorgeous washi paper and the most adorable tassel embellishments!
It really has a boho feel which I love so much, especially for summer! I used three of the papers for the coasters in this DIY. And I will be sharing the whole collection in a blog post tomorrow, but in the meantime here is a little glimpse inside my NEW collection, Peaceful Heart!!
How to Make Decoupage Coasters
- Concrete or Stone Coasters. I found mine at the dollar spot. .
- Scrapbook paper – I used my new Peaceful Hearts line.
- Mod Podge – I used matte indoor/outdoor mod podge.
Use a pencil and trace around the shape of the coasters. I wanted a small amount of the coaster to show around the scrapbook paper so I traced the coaster and then cut a little smaller with the scissors than the pencil line so a little edge of the coaster would show around the paper.
Mod Podge the Coaster
Use a paint brush and brush on a thick, even coat of mod podge on the surface of the coaster. Be sure to get enough around the edges where the paper ends.
Place Paper Over Coaster
Now take the paper you just cut out and place it on top of the mod podge. Smooth the paper out with your hands, pressing any air bubbles out. Make sure to press the edges of the paper smooth against the coaster.
Add a Layer of Mod Podge on Top of Paper
Once the mod podge has tried under the paper, use a paint brush and paint a thin coat of mod podge evenly over the paper.
Add Another Layer of Mod Podge
Once the first layer of mod podge has dried. Coat the coaster with a second thin coat of mod podge and let it dry.
Enjoy Your New Colorful Coasters!
Let the coasters cure overnight. Then use them all summer. I plan on keeping mine out all year long! It’s an easy project ad one that will protect your furniture, both inside and outside!
