Tile Goes Practical {$2 Coasters}

Hey all,

I plan on posting tomorrow (hopefully) some awesome pictures and sights from a full day of rummaging. But for now, I give you a quick and dirty tutorial to make tile coasters.

I found these pack at our local Habitat for Humanity store. The idea of making ten, quick coasters for only two dollars was completely appealing. Plus, isn't that blue just divine?

Dots or felt circles, you choose. Just whatever you choose, just make sure they're level and will keep your furniture scratch free!

Square tiles are an easy, almost already made option. All you need is a few felt circles (which I already had) or some clear bumper dots. You don’t want your new tiles to leave scratches on your beautiful furniture. Place four dots at each of the corners and marvel at your work. I love the color of my coasters, but I am considering adding a bit. This is a really easy project to take up a notch.  You could use mod podge and glue down different papers, fabric, etc. You could use paint and sealer to add a bit of a design or free form on top. I think I will eventually edge mine in gold paint, giving them a little flair. Because they are unused tiles, the edges are raw and could use a little extra pizazz. Why not make it a little gold? So you head on down to a big box store (or a salvage shop like me) and get to work! Everyone needs coasters!

 
XOXO,

Ashley
