Gift Idea: Tile Photo Coasters

I'm sharing yet another DIY Christmas present...some handmade photo coasters...courtesy of Pinterest, of course!

I followed this pinned tutorial and put a few sets of these together for loved ones. They were SO super easy to make (I know I always say that, but I really mean it this time!) I simply made prints from my local CVS (glossy or matte finish, doesn't matter) and cut them down to fit my tiles. I found my tiles at Lowes - they cost 34 cents a piece. You can't beat that! I used Modge Podge to adhere down, coated the top a few times with Modge Podge, and finished them off with several coats of the Modge Podge Matte finish sealer. My only advice is to use that stuff in a well ventilated space. It's messy...and stinky...!

Here's the final result. Brooke's Auntie just loved getting these personalized coasters. I figure that as the years go on I can update her collection with more recent photos. Fun!
