When it comes to creating unique and fun gift ideas, I almost always turn to my Cricut Explore Air for assistance. These DIY Personalized Coasters are no exception. Using my Cricut keeps the lines smooth and precise every time. If you don’t have access to a Cricut, that is perfectly alright. You can get the same look with a good old fashioned pair of scissors, it just may take a little more time.
The first set of Personalized Coasters that I made was for a wedding gift. I used my Cricut to cut out the large initial and their last name, as well as the established date. You can add anything you like to the top of your coasters, favorite sports team, photos of the family, favorite memories, the possibilities are pretty endless. Just make sure the image, decal or stickers you are apply lay flat. If it is a raised image, the coasters won’t be very sturdy for a glass filled with liquid.
Supplies You Will Need
- (4) 4-inch plain white tiles
- Mod Podge
- Foam Paint Brush
- Decorative Paper (scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, napkins etc.)
- Decal or Stickers
- Hot Glue
- Cut 4 squares from your favorite decorative paper. 4.75″ by 4.75″.
- Score and fold .25 inches from the edge on all 4 sides.
- Cut out a small square .25″ x .25″ out of all four corners (see image above)
- Generously apply Mod Podge to the entire surface of the tile.
- Place the paper on top of the tile, folding down the sides at the score lines. Add more Mod Podge as needed to secure down the sides. Smooth out with your fingers to remove any air bubbles.
- Once the paper has dried slightly, apply your decal or stickers to the top of your tile however you like it.
- Apply 2 generous coats of mod podge over the top and sides of your tile. Let the mod podge dry between each coat.
- Cut 4 squares of coordinating felt 4″ x 4″.
- Once the mod podge has dried completely, flip your coaster over and hot glue the felt to the back side of the coasters. This will keep it from scratching your surface.
I have since made quite a few sets of these DIY Personalized Coasters! Wedding gifts and Birthday gifts are my favorite ones to make. If the name is a bit long (like mine) you can add a favorite photo or just the large initial like the green ones I made for my own personal use. My last name is WAY too long to fit on a coaster. These pink Birthday ones are my favorite. I just adore the soft pink with the gold and white. You all know how much I adore the color pink!
