DIY Tile & Scrapbook Paper Coasters

Several months ago, my sister was visiting and we made a few of these tile and scrapbook coasters (thank you, Pinterest).  Very easy, inexpensive, and you can make them your own based on what scrapbook paper appeals to you.  The possibilities are endless!


Simply purchase cheap individual tiles at Home Depot or Lowe’s.  Ours were 10 cents a piece.  Cut paper to size.  Spread a thin amount of Mod Podge on the tile and adhere the paper.  Let dry (this is important so the paper doesn’t bubble up).  Once dry, add another layer of Mod Podge over the top of the paper.  Again, let dry completely.

We then sprayed a clear sealant over the whole tile to protect from spills, water drops, etc.  This sealant was purchased near the spray paint, and looks like a spray paint can.  Choose a clear gloss.


We also added felt pads to the bottom to protect the furniture.


Now grab a drink and enjoy your new coasters!


I think I am ready for Spring!

Linking up with:


  1. This would make an awesome gift idea! I'm definitely going to give it a try. I LOVE the paper you chose. Those birds are precious and the polka dot corresponds so nicely! Beautiful and fun.

  2. I have a whole box of tiles I got super cheap at a yard sale. Just KNEW there was a reason to buy them. I am thinking of Christmas!!!!

  3. I think it would also be a good idea to cut a piece of cork board and adhere to the bottom of the coaster if you are giving them as gifts (just to jazz them up a bit)! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Very cute! I love the papers you chose! I've been wanting to do this project forever, will have to find some materials for it when I go out shopping this weekend!

  5. Love this idea! I'm your newest follower-stop by for a visit!

  6. Great Idea. Lots of gifts can be made from this idea.
