Simple Upcycled Map Coasters Gift Idea

Sharing is caring!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and husbands of my readers!  We know we could not do it without you, taking care of the family and also all those projects that require heavy duty electrical power tool usage. 

Coaster Gift Idea from Upcycled Maps

We do a lot of decoupage around here. From decoupage on plastic bottles, or refinishing a shelf with paper, we are big users of the sticky stuff!

So this year my daughters decided to give their dad a hand crafted gift for Father’s Day. They made these thoughtful coasters with maps superimposed on them. The maps are of locations that their dad has been to, so the gift has special meaning for him. 

To make the coasters, they simply used an old mouse pad, cut it up in circles, and using Mod Podge, glued the map onto the mouse pad. Then finished it off with a few more coats of Mod Podge.

My husband liked his Happy Father’s Day Gift of Worldly Coasters so much he doesn’t want to use them.  He wants to preserve the memories!   What did your husbands or fathers get on this special day?

This gift also reminds me of this upcycled map keychain idea. Oh, and you have to see how I used a map to refinish the inside of a vintage suitcase!
