Well, last week I took my bag of 20 white tiles out of the floor that I had bought at a yard sale. I figured my husband was tired of stubbing his toes on them.
I cut some pretty Christmas material into squares.
I love to decoupage! Decoupage or Mod Podge is a waterbase sealer, glue and finish for all surfaces. You can use it on just about any type of surface.
Spread the Mod Podge onto the tile.
Place the material on the tile, making sure to press out any wrinkles or bubbles.
Spread more Mod Podge on top of the material. (It dries clear)
If you want you can sprinkle a very small amount of white glitter on top.
Add two or three more layers of the Mod Podge, letting it dry between applications.
Oh, I almost forgot, cut out squares of felt and glue to the corners on the bottom of the tiles so they wont scratch your surfaces.
You now have trivets to set your hot cocoa cups on this winter.
They would make a nice gift. Stack four together, tie a ribbon around them, add a mug and hot cocoa packets and place in a pretty basket.
You could also use pretty Christmas wrapping paper instead of material for this project.
As I stated in one of my comments, do not immerse these in water to clean. If needed, dab gently with a paper towel.
If you have any extra tiles, give it a try, it's easy!
