D.I.Y. Friday – Colorful Coasters

It’s finally Friday, and what better than a little D.I.Y. to kick off your weekend! How fun would these colorful coasters look on your table? And, they are just as fun (and simple) to make.

Here’s what you need:

Rubbing Alcohol – Ink (in your choice of colors) – Ceramic tiles – Felt pads – Clear, acrylic coating spray

Here are the basic steps (it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3)

Step back and let the magic happen! However, if doesn’t look like the masterpiece you imagined, pour more rubbing alcohol on the tile, wipe off, and start over. Once you get the tile the way you like, let it completely dry (about 30 min. depending on how much ink you used). 

Now, take the coasters outside and give them a coat of the clear, acrylic spray to help hold the color and protect them. If you are looking for a little sparkle in your life, opt for glitter spray! 
Final step, stick felt pads on the bottom corners of each tile and they are ready to use!
