[DIY] Valentine’s Day Coasters

[DIY] Valentine’s Day Coasters

We love working with Tim Holtz Distressed Inks, and after finding a box of tumbled tile in the garage (leftover from a bathroom project several years ago) the idea popped into our heads to stamp the tile and use them as Valentine’s Day coasters! The size of the tiles seemed perfect (3.5″ by 3.5″). This is a fun 5 minute project, using only 3 distressed ink colors along with “Painted Fence” paint, and we just love the naturally distressed result!

To start, we rubbed the ink pads on the tile using the brown colors to develop a worn effect.

Then we white washed the tile with Painted Fence, and rubbed the excess off withย  a paper towel.

Lastly, we stamped our design!

Voila! Stunningly simple DIY coasters! Be careful though, this project is so easy it may become your new addiction! hehe

**To prevent scratching delicate surfaces, you can either apply felt or self-adhesive rubber dots (the kind you use to prevent your kitchen cabinet doors from banging) to the back of each tile. You may want to think about decoupage-ing the tile as well to protect your one of a kind design **
