Chalkboard Coasters

The holidays are right around the corner which means a calendar filled with lots of social gatherings! This year I wanted to create a fun hostess gift to pair with a bottle of wine/cider/etc.  

What you'll need:
Chalkboard spray paint
Ceramic tiles
Cork sheets or felt
Adhesive or hot glue gun

Lay out your tiles and spray with chalkboard paint. I did two coats and allowed one hour drying time between coats.

In the scrapbook section of Michael's, I found some awesome cork sheets that I cut to fit the back of the tile. You could also use felt. These will protect the tile from scratching furniture surfaces. Spread a layer of glue & attach to the tile. Let dry.

Now guests can write their name, doodle and keep track of their drinks.

 When the fun is done, clean up is a breeze.
Simply wipe down with a damp cloth and let air dry. 

 Wrap the tiles with some pretty ribbon & a piece of chalk and 
you've got a fun, affordable & unique gift!
