Casper Halloween Coasters

Halloween is finally here!!! Casper was one of my favorite cartoon characters growing up. He was a cute, sweet and friendly ghost.

I stumbled upon a package of Halloween Casper decorative napkins. I could not believe my eyes!!! The Casper of my chilhood printed on Halloween napkins!!! I love this child ghost and since I have been in a "Coaster Making" kind of mood lately... I figured, let's make a set of Halloween Coasters with these cute napkins.

  • 4 - 4" Square Ceramic Tiles; purchased at Home Depot for 16 cents each
  • Halloween Decorative Napkins
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam Brush
  • Clear Acrylic Sealer
  • Orange Felt
  • Pair of Tweezers

  1. Using Tweezers, remove the outer layer of each Napkin.
  2. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge all over the tile.
  3. Apply Napkin to tile. Smooth out with the brush or your fingers to smooth the surface and remove air bubbles.
  4. Fold the napkin edges towards the back of the tile. Smooth with the foam brush. Let it dry 5-10 minutes.
  5. Apply 2 more coats of Mod Podge all over the tile. Let dry 5-10 minutes between coats. Let dry completely before spraying the Acrylic Sealer.
  6. Trace tile onto the Orange Felt.
  7. Following traced lines, cut felt squares. I use my pinking shears to add a decorative edge to the squares.
  8. Using hot glue gun, apply felt square to tile's back section.

I love how these coasters turned out. Although I was not able to finish these coasters in time for Halloween, I am pretty sure they will grace my table next year.

Happy Halloween!!!
