These fun and functional tile coasters can be made to suit anyone on your list. Customize these with patterned scrapbook paper or use photos for a more personal gift.

For tile coasters you will need:

1. 4×4 white ceramic tile (4 per set)

2. Scrapbook paper or printed photos

3. Modge podge

4. Clear acrylic spray

5. Felt

6. Hot glue

STEP ONE: Cut the paper or photos down to 4″x4″. At this size there will be a small white border around the paper. Tip: Try rounding the corners with a corner round punch.

STEP TWO: Paint the tile with an even coat of modge podge and adhere your paper. Use an old gift card to smooth out any wrinkles or air bubbles.

STEP THREE: Once the tiles have dried take them outside and coat them with the clear acrylic spray. Apply 3 or 4 coats, allow for drying time between each coat.

STEP FOUR: Hot glue 4″x4″ squares of felt to the bottom of the tile. Tip: You can buy felt pads made for furniture feet that will work just as well and save some time.

Tie them up in some yarn, attach a cute gift tag and you’re done!
