Confetti Coasters for Your Next Party!

Hello everyone, it’s Rachel from Lines Across here with you to share a fun and festive DIY coasters tutorial. There are a million ways you can transform plain white tiles you can find at Home Depot for less than a quarter with Mod Podge, and using tissue paper is definitely a fun one.

I know your first question might be, “Is Mod Podge waterproof?” You know, in case you want to set a perspiring drink on top of the confetti coasters when they’re done. You will definitely want an additional sealer like VHT Engine Enamel for this project – you can learn more at the post about waterproofing I link to above.

In the meantime, you’ll love making this confetti coasters project. It’s SO easy and these would be perfect for a party – either for decor or for a favor you make during the shindig. It’s also a great craft for teens. Learn how to do it below!

Ceramic Tile Coasters with Confetti

What you need:

What you do:
1. Start by lightly cleaning your tiles with rubbing alcohol. Cut up pieces of tissue paper into little squares. You could also use a circle punch or cut triangles or rectangles or really anything you can come up with.

Five piles of colored tissue paper squares, a pair of scissors, and tiles

2. Cover your tile with a medium coat of Mod Podge. Place the pieces of tissue paper directly onto the tiles.

I had fun making different color schemes for different coasters. I let some of the squares fold over the edges. You may need to dab a little extra Mod Podge on the edges when you fold them over.

3. Let this first coat dry before you add another one! I learned this the hard way. When I tried to add a second coat too soon, it smeared a little bit of the tissue paper’s dye into the Mod Podge.

When I waited to add a second coat, this really didn’t happen at all.

4. Optional: You may even want to add a third coat after the second coat has completely dried. Add felt circles or a big piece of felt to the bottoms of the tiles so that it won’t scratch your furniture, and enjoy!
