I’m adding some decorative and practical touches to our sports room makeover. Making a set of DIY Sports Coasters is an easy and inexpensive project. Using coasters purchased at a dollar store keeps the cost low.
I purchased a total of twelve coasters to make six sets. Now, if this sports room was only home to the teams I pull for I would have only needed four to make two sets-one for the Falcons and one for the Braves. My husband, however has roots in the Bay Area of California and he pulls for all of Bay Area teams -Giants, 49ers, A’s and Raiders. I needed lots of craft paint for this project. I had some on hand, but I had to buy a few of the colors.
The first step was to paint each set of coasters using the two team colors.
I gave each of the coasters two coats of paint.
I found logos that I could download for free on line for each of the six teams. After resizing them, I printed them on plain printer paper and then cut each one out.
Mod Podge was applied to each coaster and the logos were placed on top. A coat of Mod Podge was then applied over the top of the logo.
I allowed them to dry overnight before spraying each one with a coat of Minwax Polycrylic Protective Finish. After letting that dry, I added a second coat.
I’m looking forward to using these on the coffee table that recently got a makeover.
I’ve also made some DIY Coasters using tiles. There was an extra step for these because I needed to add backing to the back side of the tile. I made a set of Coastal Coasters a few years ago to use in our sunroom using coastal stencils. They have held up great with a lot of use.
Another set of DIY Coasters was made using a set I found at my local Goodwill Store. I made these Patriotic Coasters last year for our 4th of July Party.
DIY Sports Coasters are easy to make and they will be a fun addition to our sports room.
