Chia Seed Coaster DIY | Another Coaster Friday | Craft Klatch | Valentine's Day

Learn how to make a coaster using chia seeds.  It gives it a fun textured look and it works great as a background!  I added a heart, which is great for Valentine's Day, a wedding, anniversary, or just because.

Here's a quick video to show you exactly how I made it!

Directions:

1.  I mixed two ounces of resin.

2.  I added chia seeds.

3.  And mixed them well.

4.  I poured the mixture into the coaster mold.

5.  I used my lighter and popped the bubbles and allowed it to cure a minimum of 12 hours.

6.  I mixed one more ounce of resin and poured it over the coaster.

7.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.

8.  After 12 hours, I was able to remove it from the mold.

9.  I cut a heart out glitter vinyl, with my Cricut.  

10.  I added it to the coaster.  This vinyl sticks well and will last a long time.

Here is is all finished.  You can add another coat of resin, if you wanted to, but it's not necessary. 

That's it!  It gives it a fun textured look and is great by itself, or with a decal on it!


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