These DIY faux agate coasters are the perfect easy craft for teens to make. They make great DIY gifts and they also are the perfect crafts to sell to make a little cash on the side! I love this crafty project because all that is required to make this adorable DIY home decor are a few supplies and less than an hour of your time. Check out the easy to follow step by step instructions below.
Use a pencil to trace the shape of your agate print on the cardboard. Make sure to cut your carboard over the shape that you have. 2 pieces or cardboard are needed for each print.
With your tape, start taping the 2 cardboards together going around and over it until they are enitrely covered with tape.
Once the cardboards are covered up, you can now start painting them with gold spray paint.
Spray a little glue to the back of the prints to stick them into the painted cardboard.
To make them water-proof, apply a thin layer of mod podge onto the surface of the agate print using your fingers. Let them dry for a couple of hours.
And your agate coasters are done!
Be sure to get good spray glue for this one, you will be really glad you have it! The agate rounds are just optional, the project uses a print, but these are pretty inexpensive if you want to try real ones.
