Make Your Own Record Coasters

Here's a little project for the music lovers. :)

1.  You'll need coasters, paint, brushes, Mod Podge Outdoor, a pencil, and something to trace around.
2.  Use a round object (a quarter or film canister) to trace a circular shape onto your coaster.  I found these cork coasters for less than $1 at Walmart.
3.  Paint a black ring around the outside of the traced circle.  Let dry.
4.  With a color of your choice, paint the inside of the traced circle.  Let dry.
5.  Paint a small black or white dot in the center of the traced circle.  Let dry.
6.  With a very thin brush, paint some white or grey curved lines on the black ring of the coaster.  Let dry.
7.  Apply a layer of Mod Podge Outdoor.  You may want to apply a few extra thin layers.
8.  Once the Mod Podge has dried, your coasters are ready to use!
