What You'll Need

  • fine-point permanent markers, 3 colors
  • stencil
  • painter's tape
  • clean cotton cloth
  • rubbing alcohol
  • clear acrylic sealer spray
  • self-stick felt circles

1. Affix a stencil to each tile with a few pieces of painter’s tape.

2. Color in each stencil. Remove, and let each tile dry for 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Soak a clean cotton cloth in rubbing alcohol, then wring it out. Place it on each tile for a few seconds, then lift it straight up (this will give the ink a distressed look). Let dry.

4. Spray each tile with a clear acrylic sealer, and let dry.

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