Father’s Day Cup & Penny Coaster Gift

Busy, busy here finishing up Father’s Day gifts with my child care group. We made each of the dads a coaster with a cup filled with snacks. Here’s the one Brett made:

To make the coasters, we started out with tin coasters from the Target dollar spot. There were 4 in a pack for $3. I figured we could do something with them…but they would have to be covered or painted since this is how they looked originally Surprised smile. That’s not going to work for preschoolers!

Then I poured Envirotex  over them. It’s high gloss finish that hardens.  It takes 4-7 hours to dry and 72 hours to cure so by overnight they were pretty drying for wrapping up.

I liked the shape of these coasters but I think the same thing could be accomplished with jar lids. I think they would make great coasters sealed with Envirotex!

The cup is filed with two kinds of pretzels: cinnamon sugar & ranch.  They are soo yummy!

Each child decorated a “cup sleeve” to personalize their cups.

I hope these go over big with the dads!ranch pretzels and cinnamon sugar pretzels

Envirotex can be found at Michael’s or online at Amazon. Super easy to use with impressive results!

Happy Father’s Day!
