DIY Instagram Coasters

Are you already  thinking about Christmas presents for next year??  Or for an upcoming birthday or engagement?  Here is an idea for a meaningful, affordable, adorable gift!  I made them this Christmas for my family, and they were a hit!

Remember those supplies I said I got at Home Depot that Bill was driving up to Nantucket??

Well they were for these DIY Instagram Coasters!!

What you need…

1. Tiles from Home Depot (Chiaro Tumbled, Genuine stone – $4 for 9 tiles)

2. Mod Podge

3. Instagram Pictures printed on printer paper but select “photo paper” option when you print. For a 4 x 4 tile… print a 3.68 square to fit perfectly

4. Piece of Sponge

5. Mod Podge Gloss Acrylic Sealer to waterproof the coasters

6. Felt Pads 




Step 1. Spread Mod Podge on the top of the tile.


Step 2.  Place the picture on the tile.


Step 3.  Spread Mod Podge over the picture.

I would cut off the edge of the sponge in between each tile because ink would get on the sponge.

Step 4.  After they are fully dry, spray with the acrylic sealer.  Then let dry. (Step not pictured)

Step 5. Place felt pad circles in all four corners of the tiles.


Finally, collect a set of four tiles that match, tie them up with a bow and give them to your favorite people!


A big thank you to Steve for taking the best Instagram pictures ever!  (I used all his shots!)


  1. Adorbs! Love them!
