Personalized Coasters

Standard

These coasters are one of my favorite gifts to give people. It’s great that you can personalize them for any recipient, no matter age or style.

I picked some tiles up from Lowes Home Improvement store, for literally pocket change (in the flooring section by the carpets). These five didn’t even cost me $2, and they are the nicer type of tile! I already had a porcelaine/ceramic paint pen on hand from some previous projects, but you can pick one up at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby for, I think, only about $3. The pens come in multiple colors, but I chose black just because I felt it was the most versatile. Using the pen you just draw on whatever design you have chosen. If you mess up, the paint wll wipe off with a wet rag. You get as many re-do’s as you want! Once you’ve got things how you like them, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake the tiles for about 30 minutes. This will set the paint so that it wont wash or scratch off.

I made four coasters with the cursive “S” on them, and one with the entire last name. What you choose to put on them is up to your imagination, and the font possibilities are endless! These would make a great gift for newlywed couples or christmas gift for family friends.

Note* You will want to make sure you stick some foam or cork dots on the bottom 4 corners of each coaster to protect any furniture surfaces.
