Book Coasters – Harry Potter Style

Harry Potter CoastersAnother project to use up the leftovers from my book project/wall art!

Note – I am not going into detail about all the steps here.  For full detailed instructions on making coasters, including troubleshooting info, visit my map coaster tutorial.

I know the best way to make coasters and I had all sorts of book pieces lying around.  First up – some Harry Potter coasters for my sister-in-law.  I love Harry Potter, but they really love Harry Potter over at their house.  My niece got a Harry Potter-themed room when she was born!

The steps here are exactly the same as I followed when I made the map coasters.  I took the leftover Harry Potter pages and picked eight favorites.  I still have a bunch of coasters that I got at the dollar bin at Michaels.

Harry Potter Book CoastersI cut out circles and Mod Podged them to the coasters.  I used a couple layers of Hard Coat Mod Podge to seal them.  Guess what I discovered?  When you seal book pages with Mod Podge there are no streaks!  These turned out prettier than my map coasters!

Harry Potter Book CoastersI sprayed them with my clear spray paint to seal and totally waterproof them.  After they dried, I added a pretty ribbon and wrapped them up.  Then I wondered if I needed more coasters at home because these were seriously cool.

Harry Potter Book CoastersSeriously, how many coasters do you pick up and get read about when Harry Potter first learned to fly a broom?
