This past weekend I had a little time and decided to make a fun craft project as a Valentine’s day gift for Jon.
A couple of years ago my sister made me a set of photo coasters from tile. I loved them and thought they would make for a great gift. I decided to switch it up a bit and cut my photos down a bit and make them look like Polaroids. They were so easy to make and look adorable!
Here is what you’ll need:
Everything, but the photos can be picked up at Home Depot!
Step 1: Cut your photos to size. An old school Polaroid has a white border on all sides with the bottom section being the thickest. So I simply cut my photo to size.
Step 2: Brush a layer of mod podge on tile:
Step 3: Place photo and brush an additional layer.
Let dry for 15 mins and then layer on an additional coat. I did 3 coats total. Tiles will look cloudy while wet, but will dry clear.
Step 4: Once your tiles are dry it is time to add a backing to your coasters. Here is where the cork liner comes into play. Cut your stripes and simply apply to the backs. They are self-adhesive so no need for additional glue here.
Step 5: That’s it!!!! So simple and cute!
*I tried adding some writing on the bottom white section of the “Polaroid”, but it didn’t work. The mod podge messed up the writing and I needed to wash it off. *
