I wanted to share with you a quick little something I made that I absolutely love.
It’s another cute little tile!
I showed you how to make coasters from tiles a while back ago.
You can read about those HERE.
Well, I saw on another blog how to make coasters with tiles using rubber stamps instead of decoupage.
It looked so simple that I went to Lowe’s and bought some more tiles. And since I didn’t need any more coasters, I decided to make something else.
I used a black StazOn ink pad that I got half off at Hobby Lobby and a stamp that I have had for years in a closet. The StazOn ink is permanent and will not smear or come off . (Great for coasters.)
I stamped it in the middle of the tile and hot glued a little gingham bow to the top.
This little tile would be cute anywhere! You could hang it on a wall or sit in on a desk or dresser.
I decided to add something to the back so it could be hung on the wall.
I got my favorite material, burlap, and cut a square piece a little smaller than the tile.
I hot glued the burlap square to the back of the tile.
Then I used some jute string to make a “hanger” on the back. I hot glued the string in place.
To give it more of a “finished” look, I used some little decorative buttons I had left over from another project.
I hot glued the buttons over the ends of the jute string.
And now it is ready to hang!
But for now, I have enjoyed displaying it on my buffet table with my Christmas decorations.
I love black and white gingham. And this little tile matches my GW topiaries with gingham bows (that I added) in my hutch.
This project was so easy to do, and I am brainstorming some more little projects with tiles. I would like to use some bigger tiles next time. Wouldn’t they be cute monogrammed? Hmmm….
I am linking this post to all of my favorite parties throughout the week. If you need some inspiration, just check these out….
