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 been wanting 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 last summer. This is a quick and easy DIY and costs less than $5 to make.
~ Supplies ~
4×4 ceramic tiles (you can get these for 19 cents at Home Depot)
Photos cut to 4×4
Foam brushes (get a bag of them at the Dollar Tree for $1)
Small felt or vinyl pads
~ 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.
When the first step is dry, apply a layer of Mod Modge over the top of the photo.
Use even strokes.Repeat two more times. Allow each layer to dry completely.
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!
