If you’re looking for a simple and inexpensive gift I have the perfect tutorial for you today. These coasters are super cute and would make a great gift for Mothers Day, Birthdays or even Wedding gifts. I’ve seen so many different tile coasters and think they are just too cute! Today I’m going to show you how to make coasters for less than a buck. You can find the white tiles for about .25 cents a piece. I had everything else on hand for this project, so these only cost me a dollar to make. Can’t beat that! I’m assuming most of you have spray paint on hand… yes?! If not come raid my collection. My husband will thank you. ;)  Okay let’s get started shall we…

Supplies: 

  • White bath tiles (found at Lowes or Home Depot)
  • Spray Paint
  • Vinyl for stencil
  • Decoupage or polycrylic spray paint
  • Felt circles
  • Chevron pattern

how to make coasters 1.  I used my CAMEO to cut out my design but you could trace a design onto the tile from this pattern or cut it out as well. An exacto knife works great for cutting out stencils. Once you have your design cut out, peel off the bottom paper and stick it to your tile.

2. Spray a thin coat of spray paint ( I used a satin finish) on top of the stencil and wait at least 5 minutes. Then give it another thin coat of spray paint making sure to get the edges. If I were to do these coasters again I would have cut off the extra vinyl hanging over the edge.

3. Wait a few minutes for your paint to dry then slowly peel away the vinyl.

4. Wait about an hour for your paint to dry and then give it a thin coat or polycrylic spray paint or decoupage to seal the paint.

5. After the tiles are dry attach a felt pad to each corner so they won’t scratch your table.
