Materials: 4 – 6 3 or 4” square tiles (Lowes or Home Depot typically have plane bathroom or kitchen tile on sale for less than 50 cents/piece), Mod Podge, foam craft brush, Olympic rings printable (or any other logo), cork sheet or tabs
- Print and prepare your printables by trimming the edges down to approx. 3.5 x 3.5” squares to be applied to the tiles. You may use our free printable for this project. Click here to open the file then save and print.
- Apply a layer of Mod Podge (or other decoupage) to each tile. Carefully place your printable onto the tile, using the Mod Podge as adhesive. Smooth out any ripples or bubbles that may occur.
- Allow the tile to dry for at least 30 minutes.
- Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge directly to the printable and tile, acting as a sealant. Apply a little bit of Mod Podge around the edges of your printable and smooth down with a finger if you see any ripples or lifting. Allow tiles to dry for at least 30 minutes for best results.
- Apply 1 – 2 more coats of Mod Podge to the surface of the tile, over the printables to form a protective seal so that moisture from cups or mugs will not warp the printables.
- Adhere cork tabs or cork sheets to the bottom of the tiles to protect furniture from scratches. You can use Mod Podge as an adhesive or any type of strong glue.
*Note: I also used scrapbooking ink to ink the edges of my printables before adhering them to the tile to give the coasters a little depth and accent the logos.
You are ready to use your new coasters to celebrate the 2012 Olympic Games!
