Tile Coasters

posted in: make it | 2

My husband jokingly calls this the most expensive Christmas gift I gave this year.  It is actually one of the cheapest gifts I made but while a friend and I were making them, I broke my foot.  I was walking outside to spray the coasters and as I walked out my front door I fell flat on my face.  I had to have an xray and have been in a cast and on crutches for five weeks now with no end in sight…probably about another 4 weeks and then another 4 in a walking cast.  Hence the reason this is the most expensive gift I gave this year!

Aren’t these tile coasters great?  And they are cheap to make!

What you need:

  • stamps of your choice
  • StazOn Stamp Pad
  • clear acrylic spray
  • tiles of your choice (I wanted a smooth look so I spend a little bit more on tumbled tiles)
  • small circle furniture protectors

First, clean off your tiles.  They are going to be very dusty.

Using your StazOn stamp pad and stamps, decorate the tiles however you would like.  I went with an easy pattern and just covered the whole tile with a flower stamp.  After that, I put a stamp in a different color that read “You only live once, but if you do it right once is enough”.  You will want to use StazOn stamp pads so it will not rub off of the tile.  They are a little bit more expensive than regular stamp pads, but with a coupon it will only cost about 5 dollars!

After the ink has dried on the tiles, take them outside and spray them with clear acrylic spray.  This is where I recommend you only carry a few at a time so you won’t fall out your front door and break your foot!

Once the tiles have dried completely, put a little furniture protector on each corner of the tiles.

A quick, inexpensive gift!
