Found some .36 cent tiles at the local home improvement store….needed to do something with them! So I thought of these coasters. Really easy and cute!
Ceramic Photo Tiles
Four tile (4X4) around .36 cents each
acid-free copy-weight paper, white
computer and photo printer
Mod Podge Decoupage Glue
clear acrylic sealer (Triple Coat is what I used)
Choose your photos and print them out on copy-weight paper. Print a 3.5 by 5 size pic and trim.
Make sure your paper is acid-free to avoid yellowing. Be careful to choose photos without large dark areas, as these will print out poorly on the thin paper. I printed in grey scale.
If your tiles are shiny sand the tops of your to remove some of the shine, I found some that were a bit tumbled and rougher on the top that worked good.
Trim your photos slightly smaller than your tiles. Using a foam brush, apply Mod Podge adhesive to the top of the tiles. Adhere your photo to the tile
When the modge podge drys—apply a coat of the triple thick sealer. Let dry and put on another coat.
