Cute Coasters

I cannot take credit for this idea. It originally comes from a fun homemaking site called You Really Made That?
Time needed: 1 hour
Level of difficulty: easy
Materials needed: 4 4-inch bathroom tiles, scrapbook paper, glue stick, Mod Podge, paintbrush, scissors, pencil, felt circles
Trace the outline of the tiles on the paper with the pencil. Cut out the squares. Use the glue stick to completely coat the top of the tile, paying close attention to the edges of the tile. Place the paper on the tile, and allow the glue to dry. (I weighed down the tiles by stacking them on each other and resting the Mod Podge bottle on them till they dried - just extra drying in place security). Once dry, coat the tiles and the edges with Mod Podge. I used 6 layers, and you have to wait 10-20 minutes between each coat of Mod Podge. The Mod Podge keeps them waterproof and glossy. Once dried, stick the adhesive felt circles on the bottoms of the tiles, and there you go!

Wanna hear the best part? I did 8 tiles and already had the Mod Podge and the paper. So, for 8 tiles and the felt circles, my cost was less than 5 bucks. Woo!


  1. Cute! Love Mod Podge coasters. :D

  2. Wow!! You are super amazing!! I am going to give your homemade bagels a try. I love bagels and there aren't any bagel shops here in London. I will let you know how it goes.
