DIY 4th of July Fireworks Coasters | Another Coaster Friday | Cricut Crafts | Craft Klatch






Learn how to make Fireworks Coasters for the 4th of July!  It's a fun and easy Cricut craft and resin project.  I made a 4th of July Sign project using the same image and thought I would apply it to a coaster project.

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






Directions:


1.  I mixed my resin, according to the package directions.


2.  I separated the resin into five different cups.


3.  I mixed fine glitter into each of the cups.  I used a silver, gold, red, white and blue.


4.  I mixed in the glitter and I started with the red, white and blue coaster.  I used the blue resin and glitter mixture and poured it around the outer rim of the mold.

5.  I then poured the white inside the blue.


6.  I then poured the red into the middle of the coaster.


7.  Working on the red and silver coaster, I poured in the silver.


8.  I poured the gold into the middle.


9.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles. 




10.  I used my Cricut to cut out the fireworks image.


11.  I applied the Cricut vinyl to the coaster.


12.  I burnished it down, to make sure the vinyl stuck to the resin.


13.  I remove the transfer tape and burnished it down again.


14.  I used my Mod Podge to seal the vinyl, so when I add the black paint, it would not seep under.


15.  Once dry, I painted over the whole thing with black acrylic paint - 2 coats.


16.  Once dry, I carefully removed the vinyl...


...and it exposed the beautiful glitter beneath!




17.  Here is how it looks so far!  Time to shine it up with a layer of resin!


18.  I mixed more resin and carefully poured it over the coasters, making sure it didn't run over the edges.


19.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter and let them cure minimum of 12 hours before handling them.


20.  Here is the red, white and blue, with just a hint of the blue on the tips of the fireworks burst.


Here is the silver and gold.


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