Stenciled Coasters with Martha Stewart Glass Paints


I was so lucky to be able to test some of the new products from the Martha Stewart Glass Paint Line. Opening that box with all those goodies in it...man, craft heaven I tell ya :)

Here's the project that I came up with!

DIY Stenciled Tile Coasters



Hubby and I recently bought our first coffee table together. After shelling out the cash I'm very protective!! I knew some cute coasters would be in order to protect my new furniture. 

I picked up four coasters from Lowes for about 16 cents each I believe. Very cheap!!

I mixed together two colors of the Martha Stewart Gloss glass paint to use for the base of my coasters.

I used the handy little sponge pouncers that come with the line to apply the paint.


After pouncing I used a small foam roller to give it a more even texture.

After a couple coats I had a pretty turquoise base for the coaster to match my decor in our family room :) 

I tested out one of the metallic paints to use on the stencils.

I used another one of the other small foam pouncers to apply the stencil to the coasters.

After I had finished my stencils I popped the coasters in the oven while it was still cool and then baked at 350 (read the instructions on the paint for how long - you want to put them in a cool oven though so they don't heat up too fast and crack!)

After they were done cooking and cooled, I flipped them over and hot glued some felt to the back so they don't scratch my new coffee table!!

As an afterthought, I painted the sides of the coaster the same color of the stencil.

 Tada! All done!

Testing it out with some hard cider - yum!

Here they are on my coffee table - love!

I had so much fun playing with these paints! I know that I will use them for many future projects to come :)
