Turning your childs artwork into a coaster
- Ceramic Tiles (you can get these for 15 cents at Home Depot or Lowe’s)
- Sponge applicator or paint brush
- Shaving cream
- Food coloring
- Mod Podge
- Clear Acrylic High Gloss Coating Spray
- White paper and photo paper
Spray some shaving cream onto a flat surface and level it out with a knife.
Add a few dots of food coloring
Swirl it with a toothpick
Lay a piece of paper on top and very lightly tap tap tap ( I like to reuse paper)
Let dry overnight
Take a picture of it, print the picture and cut the photo to fit the tile.
Apply Mod Podge to the tile and press the picture onto the tile.
Apply a layer of Mod Podge to the top of the photo.
Allow to dry completely.
Repeat with 2 more layers of Mod Pode, allowing to dry in-between.
Seal with Acrylic Sealer.
Add some backing to the coasters, felt, fleece, cork, whatever you have on hand, and hot glue it to the back.
Aren’t they cute!
Think of the possibilities of this project. I turned Grayson’s artwork into a keepsake, you could also use pictures of your kids, pets, etc…..get creative and have fun!
~Have a fabulous weekend~
What a cute idea. I am always looking for a project for the kids! Love it- xo Diana
Do you have to have a kid do it 🙂 These are awesome.
Oh this is so cute Kristin! What a wonderful keepsake. I think this is something teachers would find fun to do for Mom’s like on Mothers day or a special holiday.
These are fun Kristin! It is a nice gift and a meaningful one. I think the coasters would make a great hostess gift, too. I love kids artwork.
WOW! This is fantastic. My niece scribbles now and I think its a great idea to save some. Thanks for sharing 🙂 Love you.
How great is that!!! Thank you for sharing. Wishing you a grand evening. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
