Turning small white tiles into hand painted coasters. 
What you need: small white wall tiles, paint, paint brush, felt dots, sealant.

All you need to do is paint the tiles, use tape and trace circles to get sharp lines. Then let dry, add felt dots to the back in each corner. Spray generously with sealant!

Hi @shannonrennison 

 

Let me first give you a big warm welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community!

We are so pleased you have joined us and shared your beautiful coaster project. 

 

Did you need to prep the tiles with anything before painting them? 

Are you able to share which paint colours you used? They are just gorgeous!

Re: How to turn tiles into decorative coasters

Thanks so much! I found the paint adhered well to the tiles without prepping them, however to ensure they last a long time you could always use easy surface prep spray before painting. 
The paint colours are Taubmans Spanish Rose, Coral Flower and Autumn Window :smile:
