You will need:
-white ceramic tiles (I got a half box of 40 at Home Depot and they were about $.16 each)
-Paint brush, scissors
I started off with a plain, white ceramic coaster.
I cut four squares of cork and hot glued them to the back of the coaster.
I coated the coasters in Mod Podge, covered them with glitter, and let it dry. Once they dried, I covered them with Mod Podge again and added more glitter to ensure a thick coat. I think I added 4-5 coats of Mod Podge over the next week or so, just to be safe and ensure they were sealed and the glitter wouldn't come off. Then I gave them about a week or two to dry. As I said above, that wasn't enough, apparently.
When I pulled them out of the bag, they had dents in them and once I was over my frustration at the project, I touched up the glitter, recoated them with Mod Podge and let them sit in my china cabinet for a few weeks where they wouldn't be touched.
I gave them to my parents who handed them out to my friends and family last Christmas. I didn't get to see anyone's reactions because I was in South Africa. I went on a trip through my university a few days after Christmas through early January. We got to explore Cape Town and see how the aftermath of Apartheid still lingered in the city. We did service projects with a few grassroots organizations. And I got to see zebras, ostriches, monkeys, and penguins (yes, penguins). Here are just a few of the many pictures I took during our two week trip.
