Backyard Coasters

Summer is backyard BBQ time and we’ve created these beachy Backyard Coasters to bring the fun and memories to your house whenever you want!


Quart or Pint Sized Food Container Lid from the Deli or Chinese Food Store
Tacky Glue
Small Seashells or Pebbles


Print the beach scenes.

Lay the cover of the bottom of a clean, dry lid from the deli or chinese food store over the printable.

Trace around the outside. Cut out.

Cover the bottom of the lid with a thin layer of tacky glue and press on top of your cut out printable.

Spread a thin layer of glue around the outside edge of the top of the lid.

Sprinkle on sand. Tap off extra.

Glue on small seashells or pebbles.
