Recen tly I was visiting a friend. She offered me a cup of coffee. I had to hold the cup coffee in my hand because I didn’t see any coasters – of course I would not sit a drink hot or cold on bare furniture. So as I was planning out my Christmas gifts I decided to make her a set of coasters for a gift.




Materials I used:

  • 4 ceramic tiles that measured 4” x  4”. I bought them at the local home goods store. They were $.18 per tile.
  • A 4-ounce bottle of Mod Podge.
  • A small foam paint brush to apply the Mod Podge.
  • (4) 4” round pieces of cork that I had in my craft box.
  • Liquid Glue
  • Designer Series Paper

My procedure:

  • I applied a coat of the Mod Podge onto the ceramic tile and allowed it to dry.
  • Then I glued a piece of Designer Series Paper on the tile so that it was covered.
  • I used a letter sticker to decorate the covered ile. The letter sticker is the beginning letter of my friend’s last name.
  • The I glued a 4” round piece of cork on the back of the covered tile.
  • Finally, I applied another 2 coats of the Mod Podge on the top of the tile.
  • This procedure was repeated making four coasters
