Picture of DIY Orange Ceramic Tile Coasters

So recently I went to the store to buy a bunch of tile to play with in different ways(mostly with my laser). However lasers aren't the only way to play with spray paint and tile. What if I didn't have a certain color of tile or wasn't in the mood for a white background? I decided to try using some of my old cartoon decals as a resist. Thus the screaming cartoon beaver coasters came into being. If you want to make your own custom coasters that can double as trivets come along for a simple project that looks great when all is said and done.

Step 1: Tools and Materials


  • Box Cutter
  • Plastic card(like a frequent shopper card or credit card)


  • 4.25 inch Ceramic Tiles
  • Spray paint(I used Orange and Black)
  • High temp clear spray paint(I used this. It is only needed if you want to use it as a trivet. If you are want to use it for cold beverages only you can just use any clear coat)
  • Vinyl Decals(you can make your own or buy one you like. If you are making your own check out this instructable by TSTricky)
  • 4 inch self adhesive cork tiles
They look great :) Very bright!
Thanks i used to make decals all the time and now i just have a bag of random decals. So I am always figuring out new ways to use them.
That's great! I hope you get the chance to share more decal inspired projects :)
