Handmade Coasters Tutorial

Yesterday, I shared the giveaway for my handmade coasters. Today is the tutorial!

This project is a spin off of a post I saw on Little Chief Honeybee

Items needed:

  • 4 1/4" Porcelein tiles
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam paintbrushes
  • Felt
  • Scrapbook paper or other decorations
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks

Anthony and I went to our local Home Depot and picked up the porcelein tiles for 16 cents a piece! Then we went to Jo-Ann's and purchased Mod Podge & foam paintbrushes for about $7. Remember all of the felt flowers I've made? Well, I have some leftover felt from those projects. And I also used to scrapbook, so I have lots of paper to use for the tile decoration. 

As Kaelah says in her tutorial, you can use movie tickets, or other sentimental paper items to cherish forever!

So, a recap. This project cost under $12 for 20 tiles. The price you'd normally pay for a set of 4 tiles. 

Cut out a 4-inch piece of scrapbook paper and felt for the back. Attach the felt with hot glue. 

Then use a little Mod Podge and affix the scrapbook paper to the tile. I applied 3 coats of Mod Podge waiting at least 30 minutes in between each coat. 

That's it! The tiles are super cute and a fun project to make. 

Have you ever made coasters before?
