DIY Snowflake Coasters ~ Another Coaster Friday ~ Craft Klatch

Create beautiful resin snowflakes for your winter and Christmas decor!

Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:




You will need:

Wood snowflakes: http://amzn.to/2BhwSMJ 
Fine silver glitter:  http://amzn.to/2zwBm4H
Fine white glitter:  http://amzn.to/2iMBnY1
Metallic silver paint:  http://amzn.to/2zhxtfP
Metallic white paint:  http://amzn.to/2i1x7qm
Satin varnish:  http://amzn.to/2Bhwk9D
Packing tape:  http://amzn.to/2zSo0fE
Resin (use whatever resin brand you like):
Clear Cast:  http://amzn.to/2z4rxGw

Directions:

1.  I found these wood ornaments and thought they would make perfect coasters.  Just the right size!

2.  I cut off the twine to hang them.


3.  Then,  painted one of them a pearl white and the other a silver.  This took 2-3 coats.



4.  Once the paint dried, I put packing tape on the backs of the snowflakes.

5.  Then I burnished the tape down, so I could create a tight seal.

6.  I mixed one ounce of resin, but I think a half an ounce would have been plenty and I divided it into two cups.

7.  I mixed white glitter into one and silver into the other and I mixed them really well.

8.  I then dripped the resin into the openings.  I did the white glitter in the silver and the silver glitter in the white.


9.  I then took my lighter and carefully ran it over the coasters.  Remember, these are wood coasters, so do it quickly to pop the bubbles.  Don't accidentally set your snowflakes on fire!!!!

10.  Once cured, I pull the tape off the backs.

That's it!  Now you have pretty, pretty snowflakes!


Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
