Summer Coaster Set

By:

Turn left over tiles into a cute Summer Coaster Set!  This coaster set is great for the summertime, but you can easily decoupage anything you'd like onto these cheap and versatile tiles.  These are also great handmade gift ideas for the holidays or a housewarming gift.  They're even easy enough to make for party favors or hostess gifts. 

Summer Coaster Set

Materials:

  • Blank tiles
  • Paper cut outs
  • Mod Podge or glue
  • Brush
  • Clear spray paint (gloss or satin)
  • Felt circles for the corners of the tiles or felt squares that are as large as the tiles
  • Adhesive for the felt

 

Instructions:

  1. Have your cutouts ready before you start. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge on to the surface of the tile and set it aside (step 2 needs to be done quickly so this doesn't dry).
     
  2. Hold the paper cutout by one corner (not completely flat) on a plastic surface so it won't stick to your work area. I used the plastic cover of an old Cricut mat, but I'm sure that a saran wrapped piece of cardboard would work just as well. After the cutout is completely covered in Mod Podge, let it air dry for a moment or two and lay it over the tile, making sure there are no trapped air bubbles. Use the brush and maybe just a bit more of Mod Podge to completely flatten the paper.  Don't overdo it with the Mod Podge. I think it's more effective if you use more thin layers than fewer with heavier coverage.
     
  3. Let the tile and paper completely dry. Add two more layers (drying time in between) of Mod Podge to seal the coaster completely. I think I'll be adding two more layers, on top of this, just to make sure that no moisture will affect the cutout.
     
  4. Once the tiles are completely dry (overnight preferable), add a coat of clear spray paint to seal the surface of the tile. Make sure to do this outside or in a very well ventilated area.
     
  5. Glue the felt to the bottom of the tiles.
