 I am not a fan of September Christmases. You know, when Christmas seems to appear in the stores while we are still at 105 degrees! I try not to fall into that trap. I DO NOT decorate early. I DO NOT buy decorations early. 

I DO shop for gifts early.

When thinking about gift giving, I usually try to make gifts.
Especially for coworkers and cousins because there are so many of them.

So this year, I got a head start. 
I decided to make a set of four coasters for each person.

White tiles at The HD are about $0.16 each.
So a whole set, including the scrapbook paper cost around $0.80.

It is so simple. You paint Mod Podge clue on the back of the cut paper. You lay it down on the tile and paint on a coat of glue on top. Let it dry for 48 hours and do another coat. 

These are some of the fun tiles I made. I realized a little late that you could personalize them with messages, names, etc.

 Here are some Christmas ones. 

Add felt or cork on the bottom and you have a whole set of new coasters. 

Simple yet satisfying!


  1. Love love love them! I would love to feature these on Momma's Ramblings!
