Emoji Nail Polish Holders

Emoji Nail Polish Holders by Dana Tatar for Walnut Hollow

My daughters are big fans of the emoji trend. They would happily buy everything they see sporting their favorite emoji. We definitely do not need any more emoji pillows, but I thought a fun emoji nail polish organizer would appeal to their sense of style and my need for organizational storage. The Walnut Hollow Basswood Country Round Coasters were a perfect strong base for this project.

How to Drill Recessed Holes with a Forstner Bit by Dana Tatar

Step 1: Use an electric drill and a Forstner bit to drill recessed circles into the coasters. Combine the resulting saw dust with wood glue to make a paste to fill in the holes from the drill  bit and any porous areas of the wood. Once the glue is dry, sand the coaster for a smooth finish. Note: A low drill speed and light pressure worked best. I used a 1-inch bit to fit my nail polish bottles, but a larger bit may be needed. About a 1/8th-inch lip is all that is necessary to hold the bottles upright.

I’m currently living in Virginia with my husband and two daughters. I started paper crafting about 9 years ago and have expanded from scrapbooking and now create a little of everything; including cards, tags, ATCs, arches and small gift and home décor items. I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I’m an active blogger and I like to share my tips and ideas. When I’m not creating art, I enjoy baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family.
