Materials Needed

  • ceramic wall tiles
  • matte Mod Podge
  • pinking shears
  • self-stick felt circles

Step 1

Scan the stamps (these are from preciousowl.etsy.com) and enlarge them on your computer so they’re slightly smaller than the ceramic tiles.

Step 2

Print the images onto paper using a laser printer. If you use an ink-jet printer, you’ll need to color-copy the printouts at a copy shop to prevent the ink from smearing.

Step 3

Trim the images with pinking shears and glue them to the coasters with matte Mod Podge. Let dry. Brush two coats of matte Mod Podge over the tiles. Let dry.

Step 4

Place self-stick felt circles on the back corners of each tile.
