Ceramic Tile Coasters from

Refocus plain ceramic tiles as snappy coasters. Blogger Brittany Moser of made these Polaroid-inspired drink rests from color photos and square tiles (a steal at 15 cents apiece). First, trim a photo to 3 3/4"W x 3 1/4"H. Using a foam brush, spread Mod Podge on the back of the image; then position it on a tile, leaving a 1/4-inch border at the top and sides, and a 3/4-inch border at the bottom. Let dry for 30 minutes. Spread Mod Podge over the photo and exposed tile borders and let dry for one hour; repeat two to three more times. Spray with clear sealant and let dry for 24 hours. Finally, affix adhesive felt pads to the underside corners of your picture-perfect tiles. YOU HAVE: Color photographs Scissors YOU'LL NEED: 2" foam brush ($0.47, Mod Podge, 8 oz.
