Last week on WWYD, I asked what you would do with extra tile left from a project. We had one idea submitted via e-mail and one anonymous comment left here on the blog. Here’s what I’ve done with some of my extra tile.
The first project is one that I made from tumbled marble tile. I printed photos of my grandparents onto tissue paper. It’s actually easy to print on tissue. Just cut a piece of white tissue to the size of 8.5 x 11. Then using 2-sided tape along the top edge of a piece of 8.5 x 11 card stock weight paper, affix the tissue. Then, feed it through your inkjet printer.
I sprayed the tissue with Krylon spray to set the color, then tore it down to the size of my tile. Then I used decoupage glue to attach it. When it’s all dry, I coated it with several layers of water base poly.
This was an easy tile project. I saw a sheet of 8 stickers at my Dollar Tree store that were made to add decoration to your kitchen tiles. I used them to create a set of coasters. Just peel and stick!
I used the plain ceramic tile for them.
For this last project, I used the tumbled marble tile and rubber stamps. Using Staz-On ink, I stamped the images onto the tile. Then, I colored them with chalks and a q-tip. Finally, I sprayed everything with Krylon clear spray to seal it all in. If you plan to use yours for a coaster rather than for decoration, be sure to give it some coats of poly to protect it.
So now that I’ve shown you what I did, maybe you have some inspiration. Feel free to leave other ideas in the comments below. Happy WWYD Day!
