I AM REVIVING THIS POST!!
I know, it’s been a REAL hot minute since I’ve done a good DIY project, but this one was one of my faves for the holidays!! I did this post 3 years ago in collab w/ Charlotte Russe on their blog. They no longer have that blog, & I have gotten messages to bring the directions over to this post.
SO HERE WE ARE- how ever many years later. BECAUSE WHO WOULDN’T WANT INSTAGRAM COASTERS? This is a great gift for:
+ your Mom, with photos of all her kids/grandkids (although I’d probably just do photos of me to remind her I’m the favorite)
+ your BFF with photos of the two of you over the years
+ your dog obsessed sibling, aka me, with photos of his/her fur babies
+ your boyfriend, with pictures of your face to remind him daily that you’re the real gift.
+ & OF COURSE- for the blogger in your life who needs a coaster set of her best #OOTD’s.
Basically, they make the perfect gift for anyone in your life & so easy to make!! I actually need to make a new set & I think a set for Zack w/ photos of me would be perfect… it will be like me reminding him every morning to use a damn coaster with his coffee.
diy instagram photo coasters
supplies: white ceramic tiles, glossy Mod Podge, foam brushes, printed Instagram photos
1. First you need to print your photos & I used this service for that! They print them so that they are square and ready to go. If you use the tiles I chose, make sure your prints are 4×4.
2. When your photos come in the mail, pull out your tiles & WIPE THEM CLEAN. It’s a real bummer if there is a little piece of anything under your photo when you lie it down!
3. Cover your tile in Mod Podge using the sponge brush (2 layers!) & lay down your photo. LET DRY.
4. Once dry, repeat the above Mod Podge process OVER the image to seal it in & protect it from coffee rings! Make sure to paint this layer VERY smooth so you have a smooth finish & let it dry for 24-48 hours before touching it!
