I love them as well and would love some tips.
And for everyone, is there a recommended (good price/quality) source for the frames that I keep seeing everyone paint. I think maybe they are wooden?
Please email me the link. Thanks !
Would love to know how the coasters were made as well
Does anyone know how the coasters were made??
Don't know if I can paste a link to a Pinterest page, but here is one using Cork coasters. There is also one on there somewhere with tile coasters, if I find it, will pass that on as well.
okay guess not, will try to PM you!
That did not work either. Sorry.
I made them as an Xmas present for family.
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
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!
Thank-you for sharing!
I would love it also.
Can I please get the name of the site. Kathy
If she's okay, can you add me? Thanks!
I am thinking about making small travel pillows for the kids 10 and under in my FE group using disney fabric and possibly embroidering their names on each. They would be fairly small (12" x 16" a the largest). Thoughts?? I don't want to make them if people wont like them! Thanks for the feedback
I'm not in your cruise but I think they would love them.
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 !
Can you please PM it to me?
I want to it too please PM me!
Aw too cool! Would luv that!
Can you add me too please!
