Glass Vampire Drink Coasters

The canvas measures 16” x 40”.  Hang it flush on a wall or set it on an easel. The Welcome Message template is included with the instructions.
 

Looking for something a little spooky for your Halloween or Zombie party? These drink coasters will add just the right amount of eeriness.  Maybe the drink should be a Bloody Mary? The four inch squares of glass are painted on the underside so beverage glasses won’t scratch the image. Attach clear vinyl feet to the corners to raise the coasters off the table surface. The vampire stencil is included with the instructions.
