Monday Made-It

It's the second Monday of vacation for me and it is my second Monday Made-It.  I'm on a roll!  I'm linking up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics to share what I made this week!
I found this idea for homemade coasters on a fellow teacher's blog and I knew I just had to try it out!  I saw it on The Polished Teacher's Monday Made-It a few weeks ago.  Go check out her cute coasters and super cute blog!

Here are the materials that I started with.  Tiles from Lowe's (super cheap), washi tape, mod podge, felt and a cute quote.

I started by covering the tile in the washi tape.  This is my first time using washi tape (I know-gasp!) so it's not great.  I'm going to keep trying!

Then I mod podged my quote on.  This quote is from Technology Rocks, Seriously.  She has some super cute quotes, so be sure to check her out!  I mod-podged over the whole thing as well.

Then I glued a piece of felt on the back of the tile to keep it from scratching the table (apparently I can't cut straight!).

And ta-dah!  Finished product!

If you noticed, I had two tiles.  That was in case I messed up!  Since this project was super easy, I didn't mess it up at all.  I am on the hunt for black chevron tape to make a coaster to match my {almost-finished} home office.  This one will go on my desk at school since it matches my classroom colors this year.


  1. I love mod podge. I have made a lot of things with it before. Once for a Mother's Day gift I took a picture of my students. We mod podge it on a small tile with a poem on the back as their gift to give their moms. It turned out so cute. Your project turned out really cute! I love reading what other second grade teachers are doing!


  2. Now it's official... I am the ONLY person who hasn't used washi tape yet. I've bought some though. Does that count?? I love how your coaster turned out!!
