They came in a pack marked “Bundle of Plaques”.
They cost $4.99. There are 25 plaques in 5 different shapes.

I thought they would make excellent coasters.

I sprayed them and let them dry. I didn’t fuss over spraying the edges.

I just color that part in with a black permanent marker after it’s dry.

I used them back in November but these can be used for any occasion. I think they make a great hostess gift.

Cut out felt or cork to put along the bottom. Use the coaster to trace the shape. Cut it out and then adhere underneath.

I tried them out with my Tweet, Pray, Love Mug.
While serving dessert and warm drinks. Give each guest a piece of chalk to write what they are thankful for. It’s something fun for your guest to do while you get tea, coffee and pumpkin pie ready.
