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!

- craft knife
- craft paint
- print out
Print out the piece of bread coloring page at abcteach.com found here
Then cut it out...
- Trace around the template on the cork, then cut it out with your craft knife.
- Cover your cork with the craft paint so it looks like jelly (picture below).
- Use a lighter along the edges of your cork "bread" to give it a toasty look.
Use a craft knife to cut those pieces of bread out.
You should get something like this...
Go find some nail polish 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.
