Beautiful DIY Tile Coasters!!!

Tile Coasters are very simple to make and don’t require many supplies to make.

I love coasters and yet I don’t own very many.  Gabrielle and I sat down together and made these Tile Coasters last week:

Tile Coasters

Learn how to make your very own Tile Coasters. Making tile coasters is so much fun! Simple to make with little supplies. They make great gifts too!

Supplies:
– Tiles (We used left over tiles from our kitchen counter.)
– Scrapbook paper
– Scissors
– Mod Podge (We use Matte finish.)
– Paint brush
– Non-slip shelf liner

Instructions

Step 1: Take out some tiles and cut squares out of scrapbook paper.  We made our squares a little smaller than the size of the tiles.   Step 2: Apply Mod Podge to the top of the tiles.   Step 3: Place your scrapbook paper square onto the Mod Podged tile.   Step 4: Apply Mod Podge on top of your scrapbook paper square and let it dry.  (I think we are going to apply spray-on sealer on the next batch just to make double sure they are well sealed.)

Step 5: Cut a square out of non-slip shelf liner.   Step 6: Apply Mod Podge on the back of your tile. Step 7: Stick your non-slip shelf liner square onto the back of the tile.

We think they turned out pretty cute and they were SUPER EASY to make!
I need to buy more of that scrapbook paper, I absolutely love the colors and design.

What do you think of our coasters? Have you made coasters before?

Have a FABULOUS day!!Signature

P.S. I’m linking at these Parties.

    So cute! I guess the pink one is for me when I visit ;-) I just gave in and bought some that I liked because I absolutely didn’t have any more energy for another project, but needed some coasters.

    I love love love the colors and patterns that you picked out… I made coasters like these once, but I used a damask print wrapping paper (they were for a themed bridal shower) and the results were terrible. Wrapping paper is just way too thin for the project! I really need to get around to trying another set, this time with a better paper like cardstock or something.

    I would love it if you would link up at Martha Mondays, open now through Wednesday night!

    LOVED this. And it was SO simply described, I ran out and made 4 – using ModPodge I bought 10 years ago for a project I never did.

    They turned out amazing, even for someone as crafty-challenged as I am, and I plan to buy some (new) Mod Podge to make more for friends.

    Thanks!

    You know, no other coaster tutorial I’ve seen has mentioned anything about applying something to the back to make it “non-slippery.” I love how your tiles turned out, but I’m always impressed by repurposing an item!

    To help protect your furniture use either those felt circle pads (too expensive & don’t last for my taste)or use any color of felt material you like . Just cut & trim it a little) it to match the tile and glue it on the bottom.
