Inspiration

I found a beautiful set of vintage mason jar lid coasters for sale at the Sungbug Mercantile in Staunton, Virginia during our trip there.  While we were hitting all of the local antique stores, I searched for my own set of lids to make the same kind of coasters. Monkey see – monkey do!  I love how old and dirty and rusted these lids are.  What a perfect opportunity to clean up and to make into something fun!

Tutorial

1.  Wash and clean lids.

2.  Trace the bottom of each lid onto the cork board adhesive.

3.  Cut close to the outline with scissors, and then carefully go back with the Xacto knife to make your precision cuts.

4.  I left the insert in the lid and used hot glue along with the adhesive to securely adhere the cork board to the lid.

Easy peezy!  These are the smaller lids, so they fit smaller glasses or soda bottles.  Add a cute straw and you are ready for a lazy day on the porch!
