Tile Coasters with Washi Tape and Stickers

As you all know, I've recently experienced a  Leaf Coaster Fail. I was so sure my idea was going to work.  Trust me, it was gorgeous in my mind.  Like any "failure" I believe you need to get back on the horse and try again.  So, here's my newest adventure with tile coasters.

 I grabbed 4 tiles and a sheet of some fun stickers.  First I thought I would just use stickers but then I got to thinking.  Hmmmmm.

Hey, how about some of the awesome "washi tape" I picked up at Target a while back?  (In case you haven't heard, in the office supply section of Target, they sell packs of 4 rolls of paper tape for just $4!)

Now the fun part...decorating the tiles!  Since I didn't have success with a "planned" project the last time, I decided on a random pattern.  I think it looks fun!

Next I applied  Mod Podge.  I ended up applying 2 coats of Mod Podge and one coat of Polycrylic (sealer)

When making tile coasters, I usually hot glue squares of felt onto the bottom of my tiles. Today, I decided to try using these felt pads.

Talk about easy peasy.  They just stuck right onto the bottom of the tiles!

I think they turned out pretty good.  Okay, my faith in my "tile coaster" abilities have been restored!

This was a super easy and inexpensive craft.  I think I just may be making more of these for gifts this holiday season! ;)
