- 4 - 4x4 ceramic tiles $0.16 at Home Depot
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
- Scrapbook paper
- Glue gun
- Clear lacquer
- Square stencil - optional
Am I the only one who forgets to take pictures of all the supplies. I did not end up using the corner punch for my tiles.
I traced my paper squares with a stencil, which made them a bit smaller than then the coasters but I liked the way it looked. The size I used I could easily get 8 or so squares out of a standard 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper.
I wiped off my tile before using, luckily I have baby wipes on hand. Worked like a charm.
Lay your paper square down on the tile and wet Mod Podge. Paint another layer of Mod Podge. I find even strokes work best, going from one side to the next. Sometimes I have to make shorter strokes starting on the paper out toward the ceramic edges to smooth out the Mod Podge. Let you first coat dry.
Paint a second coat of Mod Podge and let dry. In the picture below the one on the left is dry from the second coat and the one on the left is still a little milky from the second coat.
The first set of coasters went so smoothly that I ended up making 16 coasters total!
After you let the second coat dry completely, you are ready to coat them with your clear coat. I used a clear spray lacquer I had on hand that is water proof.
I sprayed two coats and let them dry. While they were drying I made the small felt squares to glue to the bottom.
Super easy, cut a strip and then cut into small squares. Hot glue into each corner.
Easiest coasters ever. Don't be surprised if you get a set for Christmas from me. :)
