DIY Coasters

Standard

I’ve been wanting to make these coasters for my son for awhile.  I finally remembered to buy the tiles last time I was in Home Depot.  You only need 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ tiles (Home Depot 76 cents ea.), Mod Podge, a sponge brush and scrapbook paper, cardboard or even a photo.  I used the cardboard from beer 6 packs – they’re so colorful.

I cut the cardboard in 4″x4″ squares.  Applied Mod Podge to the tile and also to the back edges of the cardboard.  Pressed the cardboard onto the tile, then I turned them upside down and put some weight on them with a box of tile grout I had sitting in the mudroom.

After they set for a few minutes I applied 2 coats of Mod Podge to the tops.  Each coat in a different direction. (don’t judge my crooked cuts, lol)

I added some self adhesive felt bumpers to the bottoms and that was it!  Love them and so did Jason!

I’m addicted and want to make more, the possibilities are endless, lol! (Using postcards from a vacation trip would be awesome too.)
