How to make Tile Coasters: These Hand Stamped Tile Coasters are simple to make and are a great hostess gift. (or just a “gift” to yourself, lol.)
How to Make Tile Coasters:
Christmas is almost here! I have been busy working on a few handmade gifts for our neighbors, friends and family. These Stamped Tile Coasters are an easy project that takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish.
We have a box of 4 X 4 tumbled Travertine tiles in the garage leftover from our kitchen back-splash project. I’ve been saving them because I knew I wanted to make some tile coaster gift sets.
I’ve seen tile coasters made in all different ways, but I decided to just do what seemed easiest to me. I already had all of the supplies on hand and I thought these would blend easily into any decor.
To make these tiles, you just need the tiles (these tumbled tiles are so inexpensive and can usually be bought individually at your local big box hardware store or flooring stores (like floor and decor) a stamp, permanent ink and a sealer of some sort. I used stone sealer left over from our backsplash project, but modge podge works too!
Not ready to make these tiles right now? Pin this project for later:
DIY Stamped Tile Coasters Instructions:
Supplies needed to make the coasters:
- 4 x 4 natural stone tiles, tumbled would be best since the edges will be soft and rounded. The tiles I used sell for 22 cents a piece an our local Floor and Decor.
- Permanent stamp ink, I used StazOn.
- Stamps (this is the exact stamp french writing stamp I used from Hobby Lobby)
- Modge Podge or a sealer made for natural stone. (I used a stone sealer leftover from our tile project.)
- Felt or rubber bumpers
- Pretty Ribbon
1. Clean the tiles with a damp paper towel, and let dry completely.
2. Ink up your stamp and press firmly to the tile. (I used this French Script wooden stamp.)
I did a two layer stamped image, so if you do this too, make sure the ink is dry on the first image and repeat the process. The StazOn ink only takes a few seconds to dry. I really love the clear stamps for stuff like this. I was able to play around until I found just the right placement.
3. Once the ink is dry, apply your chosen sealer by following the product’s directions. I just dabbed the stone sealer on with a paper towel, waited 15 minutes and added another coat.
4. Add the felt or rubber bumpers to the bottom of the tile.
5. Dress up the tiles with a pretty ribbon and gift tag, and you’re done!

What product do you use to clean the stamps?
Stampin up used to have a stamp cleaner. You spray it on the stamp and then wipe/scrub it on a pad.
I love these! Your tutorial is perfect and so easy. I have seen others – some bake the tiles – is this because of the waterbased ink they use or something else?
I have no idea why they baked them. I used a permanent ink and sealed them. They held up great.
are the tiles still absorbent after you sealed them
Not really, but there are different type sealers out there. you might experiment and find what works for you.
Wow! Aside from the fact that you hardly spent any money for this, you turned a leftover travertine tile to a great work of art! I would definitely love to see more of your artworks.
These are beautiful! Pinned them on Pinterest!
