Tie dye is always a fun thing to use for DIY because the results will never come out the same twice! These fun tie dye coasters were made using permanent markers and rubbing alcohol. To keep the coasters looking similar, choose similar colors on every tile, even though the patterns will come out differently – unless you decide you would like your tiles to be closer in style, then try and follow the same pattern on each tile.

If you like to make your own coasters (I do!), you may be interested in some of these DIY coaster ideas:

• Using various permanent markers, color your tile with whatever design you want. The colors will eventually all run together, so keep that in mind when designing. A favorite tile ended up being one just colored half blue and half yellow.

• Use a pipette to drip rubbing alcohol over the tiles. You can use just a few drops, or completely cover the surface in alcohol. Just make sure that you do not apply so much rubbing alchol that all the color runs off.

• Put your tiles in a sunny location to dry.

• When the tiles are dry, soak your foam brush in mod podge and gently spread it across the top of the tile. Apply a thick coat of Mod Podge over your colored tile surface. This will seal in your colors. Note: be careful not to press too hard.
• Allow the Mod Podge to dry completely.

• Once the tiles are dry, cut a square of felt the same size as each tile.
• Glue the felt to the bottom of the tile using Mod Podge.

• If you do not wish to use felt backing, here is something I wrote up about various backing materials on white tiles:

Cork The most expensive option. Cork is prime for heat and durability. It is difficult to cut as it is much thicker than the other options I have tried.

Felt: The cheapest solution. It is anti-scratch although it picks up dust and direct. Simple to cut and adhere, it is the classic solution.

Liner: Hubby bought me a kitchen liner to try when he was at Big Lots. It is fairly inexpensive. I admit this was my favorite solution. It was easy to cut and adhere and is non-skid on a tabletop. An interesting positive and negative – when I stack these, they “stick” to one another. That means I do not need to find something to store them in, nor do I need to use twine or a ribbon to keep them in a pile. The negative is… they stick to one another.

Nail Polish Painted Glasses DIY Directions:

• Clean the glasses being used in this craft with soap and hot water. Make certain they are completely dry and lint free before starting.
• Fill the bowl with water.
• Drop a few drops of nail polish onto the surface of the water. Use whatever color combination you like. This tutorial uses blue, orange, yellow, and pink.
• Jiggle the bowl a tiny bit to force the nail polish design to spread. If you like, you can use a toothpick and draw across the surface of the nail polish to make intricate designs.

• Once you are happy with the design in the bowl, slowly lower a glass bottom side down into the bowl of water. You do not want to hit the design straight on as it will create an air pocket that will mess up your design. It is best to lower one edge down, and then slowly straighten the glass out over the surface of the water to prevent air bubbles from getting trapped inside the design.
• Pull the glass out of the water slowly. Flip it upside down.

• Keep the glasses bottom side up until they are completely dry. This can take an hour or more, depending on how humid it is in the room. You do not want to wipe the glasses dry as touching them before the nail polish is dry and set it will mess up the design.
• Once the designs are fully dry, apply a coat of waterproof sealer over the designs using a paint brush to apply.

• After you apply the waterproof sealer the design is locked in and you should be able to wash the glasses on the top rack of the dishwasher. Eventually, with prolonged dishwasher cleanings the design will come off a bit, so if you really want to keep the design intact, hand wash the glasses as the design should last longer.

• Take a dry sponge, and using a permanent marker, mark the flesh of the watermelon and the rind on the sponge. You are just drawing lines so when you cut out your sponge, it resembles a cut piece of watermelon in shape.
• This tutorial cuts a little bite into the watermelon. That is totally optional.
• Wet the sponge and squeeze out all excess water.
• Cut out the watermelon stamp along the lines you drew.

• Mix the paint and your acrylic medium in an approximate 2 to 1 ratio with more acrylic medium used than paint. This will help the design remain flexible on your napkins and it will not get stiff.

• Let the paint dry.
• Add accent paint with your dark green and black paints. To make it look even more like a watermelon, seeds were painted onto the sponged watermelon that is painted on the napkin.

• Also added were yellow dots around one-half of the napkins, but not the other half. This was to make the designs similar for each napkin, but not exactly the same. You, of course, may wish to make yellow paint dots all over your napkin, or not make any yellow dots at all.
• Let the paint dry at least two hours.

• Place your napkins into a clothes dryer and dry on high heat for one hour. This will set the paint and allow you to wash the napkins after use without ruining the design. You can also iron the back of the design to set it if you do not want to risk paint in your dryer. (However, these did not leave any paint behind in the dryer.)
