DIY Tile Coasters

Tile Coasters

As you may  know I am getting married in April.  That means lots of Thank You cards and gifts for people who worked so hard to make the big day special.  I had a shower back home with 9 hostesses…that’s a lot of people to buy gifts for and stay on a budget.  I decided to make DIY Tile Coasters.  They are creative, easy, and most importantly budget friendly.
Things you will need:
  1. Ribbon
  2. Mod Podge (the glue and the transparent sealant)
  3. Scrapbook paper (I bought 2 pieces of paper per set of coasters, which is 4 tiles)
  4. Paper cutter or scissors
  5. Tiles (I bought mine from Lowes; 48 tiles for $6 total!)
  6. Ruler and pencil

I had so much fun picking out the scrapbook paper from Michaels.

I measured and cut the paper to the exact size of the tile.  My new paper cutter made this project such a breeze!!  Place a generous amount of Mod Podge on the tile, place the paper down and smooth out, ensuring to smooth out any air bubbles.  Paint on a layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper.  Once the Mod Podge glue dries, I sprayed the tiles with this transparent sealer.  I let it dry between each layer and sprayed on about 3-4 layers just to ensure a wet glass doesn’t stick or ruin the paper.
I love how they turned out.  Each hostess got a set of 4 coasters.  I stacked them and wrapped them with the white grosgrain ribbon (which I forgot to take a picture of, likely due to 1,000,000 other wedding details in my brain).  I also gave each hostess a homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub made from coconut oil, sugar, peppermint oil, and a tiny bit of green food coloring in a jar with a cute chalk label.
