Craft – Holiday Coasters

Making drink coasters from tiles has been floating around the blogsphere and Pinterest for awhile now.  Well, I made some too, but I cheated a tiny little bit.  Instead of buying felt or corkboard and adhesive spray to cover the back of the tiles I just bought pre-made coasters (backs complete) for a buck each at the Dollar Store.  The only other items you need are a small paint brush, Mod Podge glue, scrapbook paper, acrylic spray and time.

This is so simple.  Just cut squares from your favorite holiday paper.  Adhere them to the tile squares using the Mod Podge.  Add 3 – 4 layers of Mod Podge to the tiles, allowing dry time between layers.  Spray with acrylic to be heat resistant.  Voila!  Holiday Coasters.

Here are some I gave to my sis-in-law.  I added a large tile to look like a package.
