I think it goes without saying that a large amount of people are hooked on Pinterest. With good reason!
My most recent experiment via Pinterest was these pretty coasters:
Between buying a jar of Mod Podge and Pinterest, I didn’t stand a chance.
Although this is a simple project, I’ll give you the rundown on what I did.
What you’ll need:
- Classic Mod Podge (I used glossy)
- Ceramic bathroom tiles (These are 4.5×4.5″ I believe)
- Paint brush
- optional paper for bordering
Here’s what I did:
I opened up my pictures and cropped them to 4X4. I’ve got a color laser printer so I used that to print them. I’d advise against this using inkjet as the color will run once the Mod Podge hits it. Alternatively, take your favorite 4×6 picture and hack off two inches wherever you can.
I traced the tiles on to the back of a piece of scrapbook paper and cut it out. Using the paintbrush, I spread a thin coat of the Mod Podge on to the tile and smoothed the paper on to it. Then, I spread another coat over the paper and did my best to center the picture on to the tile. Smoothed that out as best I could (don’t want air bubbles!) and finished it off with another coat of Mod Podge.
Although I haven’t done it yet, I’ve got a few sheets of felt I plan on gluing to the bottom of the tiles to keep them from scuffing up tables.
Well, there you have it. Simple, right?
Go forward and decoupage!
