Handmade Reindeer Coasters
An elegant set of four coasters is an inexpensive and easy gift for the holidays.
- (4) 4" white porcelain tiles (available at hardware stores)
- small felt pads
- reindeer and snowflake stencils
- blue glitter paint
- red paint
- spray gloss enamel
Place Stencils on Tile
Stencils are available online — do an online search for "Reindeer stencil" and "snowflake stencil" — or at craft supply stores. Once you have your stencil in place, tape it down or use adhesive spray.
Squirt a bit of each paint into two bowls. Then dab a sponge into the red paint. Sponge most of the paint off on the side of the bowl before pressing it on the stencil. The best way to avoid seepage under the stencil is to do a few light coats of paint.
Add Sparkly Snowflakes
Stencil three blue sparkly snowflakes above the reindeer.
To finish off the coasters, add four felt pads to the bottom of each coaster to keep them from scratching each other or a surface. The spray gloss enamel finishes them off beautifully.
