Stenciled CD/DVD Coasters

These pretty coasters are made from recycled CDs or DVDs. We all have at least 2 or 3 of these lying around, so if you don’t have enough simply ask a friend. A pretty stencil and a little paint and these festive and green coasters can be gracing your Thanksgiving table this year!

I originally made these for Michaels craft stores and DecoArt using their Americana acrylic paints and a Tracy Moreau Americana Classic Stencil.

The name of the stencil is Jacobean Floral if you happen to love it as much as I do and want to search for it at Michaels!

So many people loved my Recycled CD Coasters from last month that I thought it would be fun to make a fall inspired version. Only this time instead of fabric and Mod Podge I chose to use paint and a stencil.

You could do these in any color that you want, but my plates are a variety of fall colors, so I chose to do the same with my coasters.

It’s a pretty simple project really! Just sand, paint and stencil. Then glue some felt circles to the back and you are all set!

    Does the clear varnish protect them from water damage? I wasn’t sure what to seal my podged-coasters with. Thanks!

      Hi Gina ;) The Mod Podge should actually be good enough. The varnish will protect them, but so does Mod Podge. If you click over to the other coasters I did with the fabric, you’ll see what I used there and I use those coasters all the time and they are still good as new!

    Wouldn’t the sweat from the glasses mess up the mod podge? Or wouldn’t the water from the glass just slide off the coaster onto the table your trying to protect?
