DIY gift for Chirstmas

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Are you looking for a fun project for this weekend?  Do you have a few more people to shop for on your list?  Here's a fun and inexpensive craft that would be a great gift for just about anyone.


4 square tiles (per gift set) white is cheapest
Mod Podge, gloss finish
foam paint brush
4 pictures
small felt pads (16 per gift set)
decorative ribbon

Place one felt pad to the back corners of each tile. 

When Picking your pictures for your tiles, try to imagine them all laying next to each other and pick the color format of the pictures to be somewhat cohesive.  We choose all black and white pictures. 

First cut your pictures to fit flush on top of your tiles.  If your using a 4x6 picture (we did), the tile will still be visible on two sides.  By choosing the white tile and black and white pictures, I think it still looks okay.  Depending on the picture, you could print a 5x7 and cut that down to be flush on all sides of the tile. 

Apply Mod Podge to the top of the tile and adhere your picture.  Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the entire top and sides of the tile/picture.  Continue this process for the next three tiles.  Once the first coat has dried, repeat process 2-3 more times.

To add some color or fun to your photo coasters, paint the edges of the tiles to give a pop of color (do this before you apply Mod Podge). 

Use your favorite Christmas ribbon to tie up your coasters for an easy and beautiful way to wrap your gift!  Next step, put it under your Christmas tree :)

Happy Holidays everyone!  Check back Monday for a yummy & fun Christmas cookie post!
