What a great idea !! We are empty nesters and would love to get a pillow !!! Wish we were on your cruise ! Don't count out cabins without kids ! They'd make great pet pillows,too !

I have a mailing list for crafters where we buy as a group to get wholesale prices on things you'd use to make FE gifts. (ribbon, key fob hardware, bags etc) I won't say the name unless someone says its ok, in the rules. I looked and can't find specific info either way.

Can you please PM it to me?

Supplies: tile coasters (I used white 3x3, but you could use any size,color, style you want. I've heard the textured ones hold the picture better but i went for the cheapest white ones and they were fine); pictures/prints to put on (I used pictures printed on photo paper); modge podge; foam brush; sealer spray; felt (for the back if u want); straight edge (I used a bamboo chopstick); tacky glue

Process:
1. Wash /dry tiles.
2. Trim picture to fit tiles. I cut mine so they were about 1/4" smaller than tiles on all sides.
3. Using foam brush, coat back of picture with modge podge. (MP). (Don't think it works great with regular paper so I would use at least card stock)
4. Position picture where you want it above tile then lower onto tile. MP dries quick so you won't really be able to move it much after you put it down.
5. Use the chopstick to go across the picture in one direction to push out air bubbles
6. Put a coat of MP on the top (my pictures streaked a little when I did this but it wasn't really noticeable). I ended up putting 2-3 layers of MP on each, letting them dry an hour or so in between each oat
7. Let dry for a day or two.
8. I then sealed mine with acrylic spray sealer. Do this in a well ventilated area!!! I did two coats a couple hours apart. I did it because MP can sometimes be water soluble so I sealed it so they wouldn't get ruined.
9. Trim felt to fit coasters (again I did mine about 1/4" smaller than tile)
10. Line tile underside with tacky glue then lay down felt. I used the bamboo chopstick to seal it better by pushing the chopstick across it in one direction. (Also got out extra glue)

All told took a out 4-5 hours over a couple days to do 20 tiles. Started with a few practice ones that I did full through one at a time. Then when I liked the way they looked and knew what I was doing I set up an assembly line for myself and did them that way.

Cane out pretty good and all recipients loved them and got complements on me.

If you want to paint instead of pictures same process basically. Paint picture,wait to dry, then put down layers of MP then seal after a day.

I had my dd3 paint with acrylic craft paints on some of the Xmas ones too.

Spray sealer smells very strong and lingers for several days so make sure to leave time for them to air out before packaging or you'll be bowled over by the odor when you take them back out (learned that the hard way!)

This is the only crafty thing I can I so if I can do it anyone can. Happy coaster-making!
Thanks so much for these instructions! We just participated in our first FEE in February and we got some coasters like this and they were among our favorite gifts because we use them daily and can remember our wonderful trip. I can't wait to make them for others the next time we sail!

Isn't that great?!
It was also pretty reasonable - about $10.
Just had to share!
THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!!!!!!! I don't have an Ikea anywhere near me but will have some friends get a few for me and my family for our Halloween cruise on the Wonder! So excited about this find...it completely eliminates the brainstorming needed to create a FE on my own

Your pillows sound wonderful. Are you just bringing pillowcases for each child or are you bringing an actual pillow? This sounds like something I could do for the kids on our cruise.....I would have to just bring the pillowcase, though.

You can order them online. Not sure what the shipping is, but the thing itself is only 5 bucks!

This is going to be my first time on a Disney Cruise to Alaska. I surely hope we are going to have a FE on our cruise. It sounds like so much fun. I am thinking about making reusable snack bags for the kiddos. Up to what age do you think these would be good for?
Much Aloha, Tracey
