Make a set of Fall Coasters using pretty leaf print paper napkins. Decoupage the napkins onto the coasters for an easy addition to a fall tablescape.
Start with thrifted coasters or dollar store coasters to keep this budget friendly.

I haven’t done much decoupage in years. If you’re old enough, you may remember when it was all the rage back in the ’70s. There were classes you could take and some people decoupaged everything in sight! I even remember wooden purses that people would decoupage pictures onto.
Fall Coasters with Decoupage Napkins
Whenever I spot coasters that are in good shape at Goodwill, I always pick them up. A few years ago, I painted some for a Patriotic Coastal Tablescape and some MDF ones for a Tropical Tablescape. When I saw these wine designed ones, they looked brand new.
To cover the dark print on the coasters, I gave them each a couple of coats of white chalk paint.
I’ve had these pretty leaf print cocktail napkins for a couple of years. I found them at Home Goods and have used them during fall for the last couple of years, but I still have several of them left.
After cutting the napkin into four pieces, I used a Cricut tool to pull the white layer away from the printed label.
I added a coat of Mod Podge with a sponge brush to the coaster and carefully placed the printed layer of the napkin onto it.
In order to trim any excess paper from the napkins, I flipped the coasters upside down and used a rotary cutter on each of them.
Once the napkins were trimmed to fit, I added a coat of Mod Podge to the top of each one using a sponge brush. To smooth the napkins out, I used a ruler and gently pressed it over each coaster.
Since I want these to hold up when a glass is placed on them, I gave them a couple of coats of Deco Art Dura Clear Varnish. I’ve used this for other coasters like these Lemon Coasters that are made using Dollar Tree Items and fabric and they held up well.
These coasters are easy to make and using a combination of thrifted coasters and napkins I had on hand, they were budget friendly, too.
I’m using lots of neutrals for our breakfast nook fall table setting with just a pop of color with the green tinted Dollar Tree glasses.
On Monday, I’m joining a group of bloggers for our Fall Craft Blog Hop. I’ll be sharing how to make DIY beaded napkin rings to go with these coasters. I hope you’ll drop back by.
