Decoupaged Tile Coasters
- 4 x 4 Tiles (I used travertine)
- napkin or tissue
- felt pads
- Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint
- Tackifier *Coming Soon* (not yet released)
- Clear Sealer (Glossy or Satin)
Whether you are drinking water or wine, make sure to protect your tables from those pesky water rings with decoupaged tile coasters. An easy DIY project that you can customize to your liking. To start, I picked up a box of standard 4 x 4 travertine tiles. You can order them online, or pick them up at a local store that carries tile flooring.
Next, choose a pretty print, whether a napkin or tissue paper that you would like to add to your tiles. I chose a napkin with a vintage musical print.
To decoupage the print onto the tiles I used Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint Tackifier. It is a new decoupage medium that is coming soon and has not yet been released. Oh, my!! This stuff is so sticky, more so than any other decoupage medium that I’ve used before. I love being the guinea pig for a new product. 😛
Working slowly and carefully I decoupaged the napkins onto the tiles, making sure not to tear the delicate napkin.
Once the tackifier is dry you have to seal the print on with a clear sealer. I used our no VOC varnish with the glossy finish, also a new product. Felt pads were then added to the bottoms of the coasters to protect your table surface from scratches. The felt pads come with sticky backs, but I added a little tackifier to ensure that they adhere to the tile well.
These pretty decoupaged tile coasters are perfect for protecting your table surface from water rings as well as scratches from the tile themselves. Easy peasy! To learn more about decoupage, check out my step by step tutorial style eBook available HERE.
