My dad is a huge fan of wood furniture. Most of the furniture in our house was hardwood and much of it was also made by him. Our couches has wooden arms and Dad was always passing around coasters when we took a drink with us to the living room. It was hammered into my head that nothing sat on the wood without some sort of protection! So I love this idea for kids to make a set of tile coasters.
Supplies needed (affiliate links):
- 4 x 4 white ceramic tiles
- scrapbook paper, tissue paper, wrapping paper, child’s artwork, etc.
- Mod Podge
- foam brushes
- scissors or paper cutter
- clear acrylic finish spray
