Instruction #1 - 4th of July Coasters Craft supply

I used red and blue glitter Gloss Enamel glass paints to create stars and stripes on white square tiles. You can find basic white square tiles at any hardware store. They are the perfect surface to paint your own custom design on.

I painted red stripes on some and blue stars on other inspired by the American flag.

The trick to the star design is to paint a star outline on first with a thin paintbrush, and then with a larger brush fill in the outside area with radiating strokes.

Let the paint dry completely. After the Gloss Enamel paint has set, you can follow the package directions to bake in a low heat oven to really set the paint.

Then cut squares of felt the same size as your tiles and glue on the back of each of them. What a perfectly festive and easy 4th of July decoration.
