Easy Personalized Tile Photo Coasters You Will Love
Giving a gift should always come from the heart. Making these super easy personalized tile photo coasters is an awesome way to give someone a gift of full of love and a unique way to display their favorite memories. Once you are done making a set for someone else, I promise you will want a set of your own.
This set of personalized tile photo coasters is not only easy to make, but the whole set costs less than $5.00 to make! I chose to use pictures of my Mom, since her birthday is coming up. You could make these with your favorite quotes, pictures, comic books or magazine clippings. The possibilities are truly endless.
- (4) 4-by-4-inch white tiles
- (4) pictures of choice
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
- Hot glue gun
- Clear spray sealant
- Ribbon (optional)
I found my tiles for just $0.16 a square, making them just $0.64 a set! Naturally I bought the entire box – coasters for everyone!!!
Cut your images down to be just a bit smaller than your glass tile. I chose to round the corners for a smoother finish, but it isn’t necessary. With your foam brush, cover the entire tile with a thin layer of Mod Podge. Carefully center the picture over the glue and press firmly to ensure it sticks.
Let it dry for a few minutes. Shouldn’t take more than 3-5 minutes for your image to be secure. Next, add another thin layer of Mod Podge over the top of the image making sure the edges are well covered. This will help to keep the edges from peeling.
Do this to all four of your tiles and lay them out to dry. Again, the Mod Podge dries really fast so this shouldn’t take long. While they are drying you can begin to cut your felt. I was able to get all four squares that I needed from one piece of felt.
Once dry, give the pictured tiles a quick coat of clear spray sealant. This step is important as it will completely moisture-proof the finished project.
Once your images are dry, hot glue the felt to the back of your tile. I did one side at a time so the glue didn’t dry before I could squish the felt down. Do this step to all four tiles. That’s it, you’re done. I told you it was super easy.
You can wrap the set in a pretty little ribbon and you have the perfect thoughtful gift.
You can makes these for holidays, baby showers, birthdays and so much more. Let your imagination run wild!
If you are looking for other frugal gift ideas you can make yourself, I have you covered. Here’s a few of my favorite:
We all know that mason jars are all the rage when it comes to home decor. There are a million and one ways to jazz up a cheap mason jar and these easy fall candle holders are exactly what you’ve been looking for to make your home a little more autumn.
So I must admit, I am seriously in love with these Fairy in a Jar Night-Lights. They look so stunning and quite magical with a dimly lit orange and yellow light. Your kids will love displaying these beautiful jars in their rooms and they will comfort them at night. One of my favorite things about these Fairy in a Jar Night-Lights is they give my girls something to do during the day when they are “bored” and then they can enjoy them at night.
Here is a super easy way to get the biggest bang for you buck and reuse your Bath and Body Works Wallflower Bulbs! These run about $6 per refill usually, and you can DIY it yourself for a fraction of that depending on the oils used. My favorite is lavender from Young Living, but I like to switch it up depending on the seasons.
