Ceramic Christmas Coasters

Capture the spirit of the season with unique handmade coasters that make great gifts!

Make a Snowman Ceramic Coaster

1. Buy white tiles from a hardware store for less than .20 cents each.

2. Make sure they were clean by washing them in warm, soapy water and drying them thoroughly.

3. Next, I gathered some of the really fun Fiskars stamp sets and a permanent ink, suitable for stamping onto ceramic surfaces. Practice a few designs on paper before committing to stamping the tiles. When stamping onto the tiles, it is very useful to have a few Q-tips to hand to erase any unwanted ink spots or smudges. Use one end wet and the other dry.

4. After allowing the ink to dry, Spray the tiles with an adhesive spray. Make sure to use the adhesive spray in a well-ventilated space (preferably outside) and allow to dry thoroughly. (This may take up to several hours to be dry to the touch but it will take a couple of days to be thoroughly dry).

Since it’s always useful to have a few extra gifts on hand, make two more sets of coasters using paper and fabric.

1. Using handmade paper, cut to fit neatly on the tiles with a paper trimmer. Use Fiskars corner punches to decorate the corners of the papers and adhered them to the tiles with Mod Podge.

2. Give the tiles about 6 coats of Mod Podge (allowing each coat to dry thoroughly before doing the next) to seal the surface.

You can do the same with Christmas fabrics.

Finally, to complete the tiles, cut some cork sheets to the correct size with your Rotary Cutter and glue it to the underside of the tiles with your glue gun.
