How to make coasters that look like toast
This is one of our favorite past projects. It is fun, easy to make, and just plain ridiculous! So, we’ve brought it back for today’s Blast from the Past!
We are practical. We are quirky. And I love when the two come together in a craft! Like in these jelly toast coasters!! I saw something similar on the Urban Outfitters website and realized it was an easy DIY! We created it..and then added our own flair!
Then cut it out…
This is your template. Unless you are a great free-form bread drawer. Then go for it!!
Use a craft knife to cut those pieces of bread out.
You should get something like this…
Go find some nailpolish in a jelly color. I chose red for strawberry.
This was mine.
You will need quite a bit so be sure it is cheap, and a full bottle!
Update: This was early in our blogging days.
Now, we recommend craft paint for this step!
Cover your “bread” in “jelly”.
Let it dry thoroughly before the next step!
Taking a lighter or flame of some sort pass the very edge of the “bread” through the flame.
This will give it a charred look to the edge, making it more authentic.
