Coasters for every age!

We made these for a fun family craft project for the 4th of July.
Super easy, and any age can participate!  We had coasters designed by a 5 year old all the way up to an age I am not allowed to share.  You really will love how unique yours turn out!

All you need is:
Tiles - we used Travertine tiles that were 4 x 4 inches in size
Felt - for the back of the tiles
Acrylic or Craft Paint
Sealer/Varnish - you can even use Mod Podge to seal them

What to do:
1. Design and paint your tiles!
2. Let them dry
3. Use your craft glue and attach a felt square cut to size to the back of each tile, you don't want to scratch your favorite piece of refinished furniture do you?
4. Seal the tiles with a varnish or sealer like Mod Podge
5. For an extra little fun, sign and date the back of your creation!

What's your favorite beverage?

This is an awesome idea! Did you use a stencil/pattern for your brand drink coasters? What a great project for our kiddos!
