Fun and Easy Dollar Tree Halloween Coasters

These super easy Halloween coasters are the perfect affordable accessory for your next Halloween bash! 


It's officially October, which means it's totally appropriate to pull out the spooky goblins and fake cobwebs and start decorating for Halloween, right?  Besides Christmas, Halloween is my favorite "holiday" to decorate for.  I always enjoy creating a spooky home for less and I love that my kids enjoy the creepy decor too.  And what better way to start off October than with a fun and easy Halloween project for this month's Dollar Store DIY

- Dollar Tree paper coasters 
- Halloween Napkins (I found mine cheap at TJmaxx, but Dollar Tree may have some as well)
- Craft brush
- Scissors 

On one of my many Dollar Tree trips, I picked up a set of paper coasters knowing they would be perfect for an easy craft project.  Dollar Tree also sells ceramic coasters, so if you prefer, you could always use those instead.  

I wasn't quite sure how I was going to use the coasters, but as soon as I came across the perfect spooky Trick-or-Treat napkins at TJMaxx I knew I had to make Halloween coasters. 

Here are the super easy steps I took to decoupage napkins onto Dollar Tree coasters. 
                                                               
Supplies for easy Dollar Tree Halloween coasters
STEP ONE: 
I gave each coaster two coats of white chalk paint to cover up the bright print.  The napkins are super thin, so unless you start with a clean white surface you'll see the print through the napkins.

STEP TWO:
While the paint was drying, I peeled apart the napkins separating the two layers.  One napkin was enough to make 4 coasters.

STEP THREE:
I applied a thin layer of Mod Podge on each coaster then carefully layered the napkin over top.  I smoothed out any wrinkles or bubbles with my hand being careful not to tear the napkin.

STEP FOUR:
Once the Mod Podge was dry, I carefully cut around the edge of each coaster using scissors.

STEP FIVE: 
After all the coasters were trimmed down, I finished them off with a few coats of dishwasher-safe Mod Podge.
