Welcome to the 7th Day of Christmas
Day 7 is a handmade gift for the home. These are beautiful Christmas coasters – perfect for your home or giving away.
I must warn you that the tiles do get quite hot so make sure you use a heat protected surface and be careful not to touch them until they have cooled off.
I bought my tiles from Topps Tiles in the UK and they are called Tumbled Limestone and here is the link. I went to my local store and bought a handful but you can also purchase a whole box online. These tiles are not shiny – they have a natural powdery matt finish. I sealed my coasters with a satin varnish spray (3 coats top, sides and bottom) and added a cork bottom from a roll of self adhesive cork. You can also use foam pad protectors from the hardware store. I would not recommend using Mod Podge to seal your tiles as it causes the surface to become tacky and will stick to your mug when you lift it. These coasters are wipe clean only.
Thank you for visiting day 7’s project. If you have enjoyed today, please subscribe to my blog on the right and/or my YouTube channel so you don’t miss the rest of the series.
