As computer systems are continually upgraded, CDs become obsolete. Games, music, promotional DVDs, all are great projects in the making! Recycled CD Coasters are turned into a chic set of coasters that are beautiful and useful. So why no try your hand at these fun customize-able mismatch fabric CD coasters to style up your kitchen, living room, bedroom or office.
Items And Directions:
– Recycled CDs or DVDs
– Colorful fabric
– Sand paper
– White spray primer
– Hot glue gun
– Sharp scissors
– Mod Podge Hard Surface
Trace a CD onto your fabric. Repeat for as many different fabrics you want to use.
Lightly sand off the side of the CD that has a design or writing on it. You don’t have to sand everything off, just take the gloss coat off. Spray 2 coats of primer onto the CDs, allowing for proper dry time in between coats.
Cut the circles out of the fabric, cutting them a little smaller than the traced circle to allow for some “border” around your coasters. For each coaster, cut a 3-inch circle from the felt.
When primer is dry, hot glue the felt circles to the bottom of the Cds. To the top of the CD add a coat of Mod Podge. Gently press the fabric circle onto the coated CD and press out any wrinkles or creases. Allow to dry for 20 minutes before continuing. Apply two coats of Mod Podge to the top of the CD over the fabric, allow 2 hours dry time in between coats.
And you’re done. You have some great little gifts for the holidays.
