Chalkboard week continues! I’ve got another ridiculously simple project today. This time I am combining my trusty chalkboard paint with ceramic tiles to create chalkboard ceramic coasters.
Start with plain white ceramic coasters from the hardware store. They are super cheap but make great coasters. Paint on the chalkboard paint. I do 2-3 coats to get good coverage.
Let the paint dry overnight to completely cure. Then, rub the entire coaster with chalk.
Once you wipe off the chalk, you are ready to start using your coasters.
The back of the ceramic tiles can be a bit rough so I suggest putting some kind of buffer on the back. I usually get the little cork pieces and glue them on to the back.
These coasters are great for keeping drinks at parties separated so no one ends up accidentally sharing their drinks. Just set out the coasters and some chalk and let the party begin.
How do you use chalkboard paint? Do you label drinks in some way for parties to keep them straight?
