DIY-Polaroid Photo Tiles

polaroid photo tiles

I saw this very cute Polaroid coaster idea in Country Living Magazine this month.  Thank you mom for the subscription!  They found these super cute drink rests from blogger, Brittany Moser of darkroomanddearly.com and I loved the idea!

We just got back from a week in Santa Barbara and I decided to make my dad (who joined us on our beach vacation) the set pictured above for his birthday using photos from our trip.

This is such an easy and inexpensive project and I think they are sooo cute!  To make them all you need is 4"x4" ceramic tiles (I bought mine at Home Depot for 16 cents each), a bottle of Mod-Podge, a can of Krylon Crystal Clear spray and 3 3/4"w x 3 1/4" h photos.  I sized my photos to these measurement  in PSE and printed them on 4" x 6" photo paper and then cut them out.  



Assembling the tiles is a breeze.  Just place them on the tile leaving a bit of extra room at the bottom to give it that Polaroid look and brush on the Modge-Podge.   Add 3-4 coats (allowing drying time in between each application) and once they have dried spray on the sealant.  To finish it off, add felt pads to the corners of the tiles, so you don't scratch up your furniture. That's it!  So cute!

Thank you Brittany for the great idea.  To see her original post which has more details click here (you are going to love her blog, it is full of all kinds of great ideas and projects).
