One week of Ramadan in and I’m already thinking about how I want to wrap gifts and plan out my Eid. I got my hands on some goodies from this year’s Honey Lemon Events collection including wrapping paper, stickers, tattoos (got some fun ways to use this up my sleeve!), washi tape (this never gets old!), mini cards, greeting cards and more.
The first thing I wanted to do with the wrapping paper was to NOT use it as wrapping paper! I saw every other way to use this and maximize the pretty design. One of the things I plan to do with the black and white Happy Eid wrapping paper is to frame it and use it as a part of my Eid mantle display. Here’s what my Ramadan display looks like!
This week I used the Camel, Camel wrapping paper from Honey Lemon Events to DIY a set of coasters – these are really easy to make and honestly took me about 45 minutes at max to put them together!
Here’s what you will need:
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
- A pencil
- Tiles that are large enough to be coasters
- Wrapping paper
- Adhesive felt squares
How to make DIY wrapping paper coasters
- Use a full tile sheet and cut away the four pieces needed. Peel away the back netted portion
- Cut a portion of the wrapping paper out that you want to be shown on your coasters
- Using a pencil, trace around the tile
- Cut slightly outside of the trace line to ensure you have enough room to cover the edges of your tile. Snip slightly between the edge at every corner to allow for folding
- Crease down the fold where the edges are so that you can get a straight, clean edge
- Brush mod podge on the tile (if your tile is really shiny, rough it up with some sandpaper)
- Lay the wrapping paper on the tile and brush mod podge on top of it – do not use a heavy hand as this can end up wrinkling or ripping the paper. Brush along the edges as well to get the paper wrapped all around so that no more of the tile shows.
- Place the tile on something smaller than it in order to dry – I used a candle but you can also use a mason jar or anything else, just so that it doesn’t stick to any surfaces from the edge.
- Let dry for 24 hours and enjoy!
