Fun Summertime Watermelon DIY Coasters

It’s hard to believe that summertime is upon us.  Kids out of school means lots of time outside by the pool.  These were the perfect little coasters to add some “summertime” decor to our pool and patio areas!  See how I used Dollar Tree coasters and some old paper napkins to mod podge these fun DIY Summertime watermelon coasters…DIY Summertime Watermelon Coasters Poolside Pin
