Hi Friends! Did you have a great St. Paddy’s Day weekend? We were planning on going to the parade and then, go-cart races with friends Saturday morning, but we had single-digit temps so ended up we cozying up at home. Saturday night our neighborhood had its annual St. Paddy’s Day potluck with live music and it was so much fun. Now, I’m currently on vacation with my daughter for her spring break. I have been struggling with work/life balance and didn’t have a post prepared for today. So, I thought, why not share one of my most pinned posts, my tile photo coasters tutorial. This simple tutorial is quick and easy and costs less than $5 to make! I hope this will inspire you to make some coasters of your own!
~ Supplies ~
4×4 ceramic tiles (you can get these for 20 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 Podge over the top of the photo using even strokes. Repeat two more times. Allow each coat 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 four 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.
They’re a great way to share your special memories or give them as a cool photo gift!
