DYI tutorial chalkboard coasters

Hello friends,
I made some chalkboard stone coasters, I love coasters, I have them everywhere in my home, summer drinks everywhere, you need them.

These coasters are very easy to make, less than a 1/2 hour.


4 stone tiles (Home Depot), cheap.  They show a lot of imperfections,so they look real earthy.

1 can of chalkboard paint (Michaels, coupon)

chalk or the new chalkmarkers (Michaels, coupon)

1 sheet of cork, or felt

hot gun or strong glue

First of all spray your tiles with the chalkboard paint three times.

They dry very fast.

Secondly, glue the cork or felt to the back.

Thirdly, rub chalk all over the stones to cure the chalkboard.

You are done, pack them as a gift, or lay them on your coffee table, your friends will love them, conversation and fun.

Have fun,

I love this idea. I have some "earthy" tiles laying around too. Yes, I feel it is the time to get a head start on homemade gifts. Thank you. Great tutorial.
