Instagram is super popular right now, and just when you thought it was only for a live picture feed, it can be used for more, like making custom items with some uniqueness and tons of personality. It is a very simple thing that can be done by using your own photos and a few tools to create a fun, inexpensive, easy and useful item for anyone. Let’s get to it!

Here are the things you need to create Instagram Coasters:

  • A couple of pictures chosen from Instagram
  • 4in x 4in tiles or wood squares
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Felt stickers
  • Clear Waterproof Sealant

Now, the fun begins:

  1. Print the pictures selected from Instagram. Adjust the pictures as needed to fit the tiles, and cut off the excess to fit the tile.
  2. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge to the front of the image one, and smooth any bubbles out gently by using a credit card.
  3. Let it dry completely and then paint 2-5 layers of Mod Podge, allowing them to dry between each layer.
  4. The next day spray the tile with a thin layer of sealant.
  5. Let the tiles sit for a few days and then apply felt stickers to each corner of the tiles.

A super fun way to keep memories alive, and it makes for an awesome gift.
