DIY Painted Tile Coasters

DIY Painted Tile Coasters - DesignLively

One of my favorite types of gifts, to both give and receive, is something that is homemade.

For Christmas, my mother-in-law surprised us with a collection of DIY painted coasters!

The coasters are tumbled marble tiles from Home Depot, which she sanded down. Then she painted on them and gave each coaster a final coat of polyurethane.

Then she glued cork to the bottom (using Elmer’s Glue, she said she did her research!)

She said that she got the idea from a store – where they were charging $12 for each coaster!

Plus, she gave us a set of 12 coasters, which is great because I never seem to have enough coasters around when we have a party.

We’ve got crafty genes all over this family tree.

They’ve already been put to the test! Saturday morning coffee and a read through one of my new Christmas reads!
