Hi everyone! Before I get to these cute, inexpensive, painted tile coasters, let me apologize for missing a few days of the 25 days of Christmas! Nothing to worry about going on, just some quality family time had to be spent! My hubby is traveling 8 of the next 13 days until Christmas so we had to get in some time together!! I will make all the days up, I promise!!! Also, if you use Facebook, it’d be great if you could add me on there. I was able to send out a message this weekend ap0logizing for missing a few days but only my Facebook friends could see that!
Now, on to these cute coasters!!!
- Spray Adhesive
- Cork Pads or Felt Pads
- Clear Spray Paint
- Stenciling brush
I got my tiles at Lowe’s for $0.16 each!!! Sixteen cents! Make sure to grab ones that are not “edgers” . Edgers will have one of the sides curved.
I had this stencil that I bought back this summer and it was talking to me each time I passed it “Find a reason to use me!” Well I found a reason!
I sprayed the back of the stencil with spray adhesive and lined it up on my tile.
Using a stenciling brush, I painted over the stencil. I highly recommend the stenciling brush…it left clean lines versus the foam brush I started with (and is pictured above).
Peel the stencil off right away.
I gave the stencil a quick spray of water in my kitchen sink to rinse off the paint, dried it and repositioned it on my next tile. I didn’t even have to re-spray with adhesive, it was still tacky enough.
After the tiles dried I added two coats of clear spray paint to seal them in!
I attached some half inch cork pads that I found at Dollar Tree.
Now you have a set of coasters! You can have free reign on your design. Initials? Names? Shapes? Holiday Shapes? Your options to paint are endless.
These would make a great personalized gift! You can even have the kids make them. Handprints perhaps? See…I told you the options are endless!
