DIY Photo Coasters are an easy way to get the kids involved in gift giving. They are very easy to make, and grandparents love them! These make a fun, creative DIY Christmas or Grandparent’s Day gift. The supplies are simple and it’s fun to recreate some memories when you add them to a coaster to keep on the coffee table. The whole family can get involved in this DIY gift!
We are blessed to still have grandparents living. Our children are growing up with great-grandparents, and we are so thankful for that! At Christmas, we love to still give gifts to our grandparents…but what do you give someone who already has and is content with everything? I whipped up these cute photo coasters, and I was so pleased with how they turned out, that I want to make some for our new living/game room in the basement. Even the kids can get involved with this DIY gift, and before you know it, they have a personalized and sentimental gift to put under the tree.

Tips for creating beautiful DIY Photo Coasters
Choose high quality printer paper to print your photos. You want them crisp and clean!
Use a small paper cutter to trim them to 4×4. This assures they are even and look great!
Use adult supervision when applying the polyurethane. Be sure to do this in a well ventilated area.
You can also use resin as the top coat instead of polyurethane.
If you’d like to use colored photos, I suggest using actual photos you have printed at the store ~ not printing them in color on the printer.
