Mod Podge Coasters



Here's a fun way to keep your kids (and husband)
on track while helping them remember your words
without having to stand over them!

Items Needed: 
~6x6 inch tiles
~Spray Paint
~Mod Podge
~Spray Sealant
~Paint Brush
~Letter Stickers
~Cork Stickers or a Sheet of Cork

Start with plain white porcelain tiles. 
I bought these at Hobby Lobby for about .25ea.


1. 
Spray paint the tile and let dry.


2.
Grab a sheet of letter stickers and place your word choice 
without pressing down hard. This way you can adjust 
their placement without tearing the letters.



3.
Once your phrase looks the way you want it, press the letters down firmly.



4.
Brush the lettered tile with a coat of Mod Podge and let dry. 


5. 
Repeat this process 3 or 4 more times letting the Mod Podge dry between coats. 


6. 
After the last coat dries, spray with a sealant and let dry. 


7. 
I forgot to take a picture, but after the sealant has dried, I turned the tile over
and painted a layer of Mod Podge then placed 4 small cork dots in the corners. 
You can also buy a sheet of thin cork and cut to just inside the size of the tile. 
This will give you a nice flat surface on the bottom.
