These coasters are super quick to pretty up and are fun to gift.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own set:

  • Tiles from Lowes or any home improvement store (I think these were 3.5 x 3.5 and were about twenty cents each)
  • Stamp(s) of your choosing
  • Ink (I used Staz-On)
  • Spray sealant

Starting with a clean, dry tile, stamp your image onto the tile.
The most important thing is to make sure you let the ink dry long enough. I always wait overnight just to make sure it’s not going to run.
Then spray with several coats of sealant, letting each coat dry fully.
I usually also add those little sticky-back, felt circles to the bottom to protect the surfact the tiles are sitting on.
Wrap with a ribbon and you have a simple, useful gift for someone.
