Tile coasters are always great for around the house. They protect surfaces from your sweating drink, and they can be great décor accents. I love the idea of tile coasters, but I also love the idea of using instagram images as coaster surfaces. For this DIY, I took those two elements and combined them to make a set of reversible coasters. These are super simple to make, customizable to your liking and perfect for gifting!
What you need:
Instagram prints (It’s best to print out your images on photo paper. I saved mine from the web onto a USB drive and printed them at CVS. Since my tiles were all 4×4, I made 4×6 prints and just cut them to size.)
Sealer (I used a multi-purpose liquid sealer, but you can also use any water resistant/acrylic sealer)
I picked up my tiles at a salvage store and chose a variety of prints and colors.
First, flip over your tiles and cover the back with a solid coat of Mod Podge.
Lay your images onto the tiles and allow the Mod Podge to set for about an hour.
Next, paint a coat of Mod Podge on top of the image. This will dry clear so don’t worry about ruining the picture! Once all of your tiles have dried, finish off with a few coats of the sealer. This will help protect the images from any water that might loosen the Mod Podge. Allow your tiles to dry completely.
There yah go! Fun and easy reversible coasters!
