Hi! I’m Alexandra Hedin – a lifestyle and entertaining expert from the Pacific Northwest. I provide inspiration, recipes, and crafts for creating a lovely life. It doesn’t take much to make everyday lovely – or to have fun. And isn’t that what life is about? All week I’ll be here showing you how I threw together a little springtime affair that takes only a little thought and some good friends.
The last two days I showed you a fabulous little cocktail and an appetizer to go alongside. But now you need a spot to set your cocktail down... a fabulous coaster!
These are really easy and really inexpensive to make so you can create them in any color for any season.
- 4x4 ceramic tile
- Ceramic paint (available at the craft store)
- Sticky back felt
- 1/2 inch paint brush
- Lip print stamp (optional)
Step 1: Paint your lips carefully with ceramic paint. If you aren't comfortable coating your lips with paint, use a lips print stamp.
Step 2: Kiss the tile carefully leaving a print. Or use the stamp.
Step 3: Bake tile according to paint package instructions. Remove from tile and let cool.
Step 4: Cut sticky back felt into 3.75 x 3.75 inch square. Apply felt to the bottom side of the tile. Press down well.
Step 5: Place cocktail on and enjoy!
Stay tuned this week for the rest of the party including more recipes and more crafts!
