Good morning, beautiful people! I hope you are having a great week. I’m excited to bring you my reindeer holiday coasters that I created using the fabulous new line of Martha Stewart Crafts acrylic paints. Woot!

I adore how the coasters turned out! What a great handmade gift!

Reindeer Holiday Coasters Supplies Needed:
  • 4 – 4″ white porcelain tiles {I got mine at Lowe’s for 0.16 each.}
  • Small felt pads
  • Reindeer and snowflake stencils
  • Glitter Feldspar paint
  • Satin Habanero paint
  • Sponges
  • Spray Gloss Enamel

Tape down or use spray adhesive to secure the stencil to the tile. Either way works!

Squirt a bit of each paint into a bowl. Then use a sponge and dab it in the red paint. Then sponge most of the paint off before pouncing it on the stencil. The best way to achieve “no-seepage” under the stencil is to do a few light coats of paint.

Then, stencil three blue sparkly snowflakes above the reindeer. I love the red and aqua together!

How festive!
To finish off the coasters, add four felt pads to the bottom of each coaster to keep them from scratching each other or a surface. The spray gloss enamel finishes them off beautifully!

With a little jute and baker’s twine tied around them, the reindeer coasters are ready to gift to a friend!

I’m really pleased with how my reindeer coasters turned out!
