DIY Tile Photo Coasters


I'm always looking for ways to brighten up a room with small details. We've had our coasters in our living room for years, and I've wanted some new ones. Instead of hitting the home decor shops, I thought it would be fun to make them myself using the photos from our trip to Saugatuck a few summers ago. This is a quick and easy DIY and costs less than $5 to make. 

Supplies to make personalized photo coasters

~ Supplies ~

4x4 ceramic tiles (you can get these for 20 cents at Home Depot)
Photos cut to 4x4
Foam brushes (get a bag of them at the Dollar Tree for $1)
Mod Podge
Acrylic sealer
Small felt or vinyl pads

To personalize your coasters, layer Mod Podge over the top of the photo using even strokes.

~ Instructions ~

Using a foam brush, apply a layer of Mod Podge on a tile and then center and press your photo onto the tile. Allow to dry completely.

Personalize your coasters! All you need are photos, Mod Podge and ceramic tiles!

When the first step is dry, using even strokes, apply a layer of Mod Podge over the top of the photo. Repeat two more times. Allow each coat to dry completely.

To keep your personalized coasters water proof, spray several coats of Mod Podge sealant.

In a well-ventilated area, spray with the acrylic sealer. This step will seal the coaster and ensure it's waterproof. Repeat 4 times, allowing to dry completely before applying the next coat.



Adhere the felt or vinyl pads to each corner on the back of the coaster.


That's it! They were fun to make, and I love that they have a vintage Polaroid vibe to them. 


They're a great way to share your special memories or give them as a really cool photo gift!
