I haven’t posted in a little while and I gotta tell you, I miss it! I am happy to be back, and I am so excited to share my DIY Frenchy Coasters project with you! I love how they came out, and I definitely have plans of making more! 🙂 Oh and I am not sure if “Frenchy” is a word….? My spell check is telling me “no”. Lol oh well, I like it and I am keeping it! Oh and another great thing, these cost about $5.00 to make… for all 8! For real!
I love The Graphics Fairy and could spend hours looking at all of her graphics! The two I picked for this project can be found here and here. Grab them if you love them! They are FREE!!!! 🙂 But really if you don’t dig the Frenchy look, there are a ton of different things you could do. I am thinking an old map will be next on my list!
- 4×4 inch tiles
- Mod Podge
- 4×4 paper or picture of your choice (scrap book paper would work awesome too)
- 2 Pieces of Felt
- Rubbing alcohol
The Mod Podge was about $2.50 and the felt about $0.60 for two pieces. I got my tiles from a discount home improvement store, or rather Kevin picked them up for me for $0.19 each! Of course he couldn’t help but grab a box of 20 when I said I needed about 8. 🙂
Ok, moving on. First clean your tiles with rubbing alcohol. Then cut the paper you choose to the size of your tile. A tiny bit smaller works ideal.
The bottoms of the tile are quite rough so you are going to want to add the felt to protect your furniture. Cut your felt a bit smaller then your tile and glue on to the bottom.
Next, coat your tile with Mod Podge and carefully place your paper on it.
I took a credit card and smoothed it over the tiles so the paper is free of bubbles and wrinkles.
Let dry fully. I would say about 20 minutes. Once it dries, apply the Mod Podge to the top of your tiles over your paper. Let dry, repeat, let dry repeat! I would give it about 4 coats to really give it water proof protection. That’s it! Super easy and fun! What a great gift idea too, right?!
What do you think? Are you going to give them a try? Let me know! Don’t forget to check out my other DIY projects here!
