This is a hip and frugal homemade gift idea for the holidays.  Super easy and inexpensive!

Ceramic Tile Coasters

Step 1. Gather your materials:

*4 1/2 inch ceramic tiles (purchased from Home Depot for 12 cents each!)
*Scrapbook paper, cut into 3 3/4 inch squares
*Mod Podge
*sponge brush
*adhesive felt dots

Step 2. Apply adhesive felt dots to underside of ceramic coasters.

Step 3. Using a sponge brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to underside of square scrapbook paper and press down onto ceramic tile, smoothing out any air bubbles. Allow to dry completely.

Step 4. Apply thin layer of Mod Podge over the scrapbook paper with sponge brush.  Let dry completely, then apply another layer of Mod Podge.  Repeat two or three more times, allowing Mod Podge to dry completely between layers.  (You may choose to spray an acrylic sealer over the top of finished coasters, this gives them a better seal and will make them more waterproof).

Step 5. After coasters dry completely, wrap up in a decorative ribbon and they are ready to gift! This project could be done with photos if you want to make a more personalized gift!

Happy Holidays!
