Photo Coasters

These coasters came out beautiful. We loved them so much that we plan to make more! They make great gifts and are a nice way to display your favorite photos. 

What you need:
4x4 White Tiles
Mod Podge
Epoxy Resin
Adhesive Felt Mounting Circles or Cork Board

How to make it:

  • Cut pictures to 4x4 to fit tile.

  • Using a foam brush, apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the top side of tile and align picture on top and press down to adhere.
  • Once dry, apply a coat of Mod Podge over entire picture. Allow to dry.

  • Follow instructions per label on mixing resin.
  • Elevate your tile with a cup on aluminum foil or wax paper.
  • After mixing resin with hardener, pour on tile. Spread it out using popsicle sticks. 
  • Use a lighter to pop bubbles.
  • Allow at least 72 hours to dry to harden. If needed let it dry longer. 
  • Once dry, stick 4 of the felt circles on the bottom of each tile or cut corkboard to fit tile and glue on the back of tile.
  • Then stare at how pretty they look!

Note: The reason you elevate the tile is so the additional resin on your tile drips down instead of drying on to the tile. If you place the resin on a flat surface and it dries on the tile, simply cut it out.
