Decide on the placement of your letters. If you’d like to include a hidden message, lay those tiles out first atop the coaster, then fill in the spaces with additional letters. Once you’ve laid out your tiles, flip them over one by one so you’re looking at the reverse. Press the tiles close together so they’re even.

Step 2:

Cover the coaster with super glue and carefully place atop the flipped-over letters. Press the coaster firmly to adhere to the tiles and allow to dry.

Once the glue has dried completely, flip the coaster over and, using the foam brush, brush a light later of Mod Podge over top. Allow to dry and serve dad a drink in style at your next game night!
