A few years back I made these coasters, and loved how simple they were. Recently I wanted an upgrade and I thought it would be fun to make instagram photo coasters. I had all the supplies on hand, except for the tiles, so the whole project only cost me $0.64, which makes my frugal heart happy!
- 4 small ceramic tiles (4.5 x 4.5, can be found at Home Depot or Lowes)
- 4 of your favorite instagram photos, printed and cut to about 4x4 (I printed mine at home on photo paper)
- 1 foam sheet
- Mod Podge
- Clear Acrylic Coating
- Paint brush
Cut the craft photos very carefully with a paper cutter or scissors. Then spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on the tile (with a paint brush or foam roller). Carefully position the photos, and add one or two coats of Mod Podge over the paper, letting dry between coats.
Cut 16 small squares (four per coaster) out of the foam sheet. Then glue them, using a hot glue gun or strong adhesive, to the bottom corners of the tile.
Then simply take the coasters outdoors and spray with a water-resistant Clear Acrylic Coating, following the directions on the can. I did two coats, which seemed to work out fine.
Note: If you want finished edges you can sand the edges of the tile and paint white
