Is it just me, or do these months seem to go by faster and faster? We’re already in April! Before we know it, it’ll be May and we’ll be celebrating Mother’s day. So, since it’s only a month away, it’s time to start thinking about our sweet moms and some gift ideas for them!
I love to give handmade gifts, especially with Jade’s help. We made a cute little handprint coaster for David for Christmas this last year, and I thought making a set of them would make the perfect Mother’s day gift! These DIY handprint coasters are not only inexpensive, but are seriously incredibly easy to make. And they’re totally adorable!
- 4 white tiles (I got mine at Home Depot for $.16 each!)
- 4 acrylic paint colors
- Paint brush
- Vinyl Bumpers
- Clear protective glaze
- Little hands!
This little project is perfect for any number of kiddos (if you have more than 4, you can double up the prints or make more coasters!). What’s so great about using these tiles is if you make a mistake, you can easily wipe it off and do another! I may have had to wipe off Jade’s print and redo it
1,254 a few times. 🙂
And, because it’s virtually impossible to get a toddler’s handprint without it smearing in the first place, there was no way I could have gotten any pictures of it, too. I’m not that good! 😉
To make these cute coasters, you just paint the kiddo’s hand and press it on the tile. Easy peasy! Let the handprint dry for an hour or two. Then spray a few light coats of a clear protective glaze on top to make it waterproof. I like to use Rust-oleum’s Triple Thick Glaze. Let them dry completely overnight.
Flip the coasters upside down and add a vinyl bumper in each corner. I got mine at Home Depot where the furniture pads are. They’re perfect for making the coasters stay in place better on a table and not slip around too much!
Hope your weekend is lovely, friends!
