Go to any nice retailer selling high-quality housewares and youll see lots of coasters made out of tumbled stone or marble. The rustic elegance is great for your table but not your wallet. A set of 4 stone coasters can cost anywhere from $15.00 to $30.00 depending upon the design.
When I was wandering through the flooring section of Home Depot the other day, I noticed they had the same 44 tiles in a variety of beautiful stones. This Travertino stone is exactly like the tiles used for those expensive tiles. At Home Depot you can buy a set of 9 for less than $4.00
You can either leave the stone alone or your can customize it with different colors or patterns. To make your own coasters simply remove the tiles from the plastic wrap and make sure all tiles are in tact and without any chips. Use a sponge and wipe off the dust from both sides of the tiles and let them dry. The fastest way to add some color to the stone is to buy a pre-printed ink stamp and just stamp the surface of the stone and let it dry. You can also use paper or fabric to cover the stone in different colors. Coat the tiles with a layer of Mod Podge adhesive and place pre-cut paper on top of adhesive. Add another coating of Mod Podge to paper and allow to dry. If you see any ripples or bubbles in the paper, gently smooth with your fingertips while the adhesive is still wet. Next add a clear acrylic sealer can be used to remove any stickiness from adhesives. But a package of small felt circles (also available at Home Depot) and place one on each corner of the table-side of the tile. You can make your own custom tiles for your next party or give them as gifts!
