Tile Coasters: project 50 of 52

Pin It
I wanted to make some coasters, got my supplies but when I went to cut my vinyl of course I didn't have enough of the right color. And being in a small town and being Christmas our small Walmart was out of every color of vinyl except blue. Normally blue is good in my house of boys but not for this project. It is about 40 minutes to the next possible option too. So I decided to put modge podge to work.
I cut regular colored paper and glued it on with modge podge then gave a nice coat over the letters. I actually like it better than regular vinyl. I think it helped to seal the tile a bit and smooth the rough texture.
I added felt to the back and VOILA!
The tile came in a pack of 9. Perfect for a set of 4 for a teachers gift and a set of 5 for a family gift.
I love the difference a simple monogram can make. It adds elegance to ownership. Just wrap them with ribbon and you're set!
