DIY Mosaic Tile Coasters

Hi everyone! I mentioned in an earlier post that I am challenging myself to not buy anymore craft supplies until I use up all the supplies I already own. The struggle is real because I receive coupon offers everyday from my favorite craft stores, but I am proud to say that I have not bought anything for several weeks!

Today’s blog post is the result of creative thinking. I always wanted to own some unique coasters, and what’s more unique than coasters made out of mosaic tile?

Check out the tutorial below.

Supplies:

  • Mosaic Tile
  • Cork Board Roll
  • Xacto Knife
  • Decoupage Adhesive
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Hot Glue Gun

Instructions:

  • Arrange the mosaic tiles on the cork board sheet. Apply hot glue on the bottom and sides of the tiles, then attach them to the cork board.

  • Seal the decoupaged paper with another layer of the adhesive. Let the top coat set for about 2 hours. The coasters are now ready to use.
