I've been seeing tile coasters on a lot of craft blogs lately so I thought I would make some for my mom. I know there is already so many tutorials out there but I wanted to share mine in case you haven't seen any of the others before. They were very easy and VERY cheap to make. Best of all my mom loved them and I have some family requests for more.


Tiles found at any home improvement store
Paper or napkins (I made mine using scrapbook paper)
Mod podge
Cork or felt tabs for the bottom on the tile


Mod Podge your paper onto your tiles and let it dry.

Put a few coats of Mod Podge over the paper and tile to seal the paper onto the tile. I did three coats.

Once the Mod Podge is fully dry, spray or paint the glaze over top of the entire surface of the tile. I did three coats of this as well to seal it all in well. I probably went overboard with my coats but once again my crafting OCD got the best of me....
Once everything is completely dry, glue some cork or felt circles onto the back of your coasters to help prevent scratching your table top. I found my roll of cork at Home depot.
Package them up with a piece of ribbon or twine, and watch your recipients eyes light up. Don't forget to make a set for yourself.
