I have a good friend who is an avid quilter and I made these tile coasters for her birthday.
Tile coasters are very easy to make, they just are not a quick project. So as long as you make them several days ahead they're an impressive easy gift. And this particular pattern was a great way to use up some DSP scraps.
- 4" square tiles (I get mine at my local Habitat for Humanity Re-Store)
- ModPodge and foam brush
- Paper decoration
- make your focal point on paper
- be sure the tiles are clean and dry
- cover both the tile and the back of the paper with a thin layer of Modpodge
- on the dry upper surface of the paper start at the center and work to the edges to remove all the bubbles from under the paper
- then brush a thin layer of modpodge over the top being sure to seal the edges
- allow to dry and repeat as many layers as you feel looks good (I usually add 2-3 more layers of ModPodge)
- Seal with an acrylic spray sealer (to protect from condensation from a cold glass)
- Adhere felt furniture feet on the bottom to each corner - to protect furniture from the tile
I also like to make a matching pretty package to deliver the gift.
