What does every parent love to get during the holidays? Why, photos of their family of course! In a few easy steps, you can take a standard photograph and have a beautiful personalized drink coaster for every member of your family! This thoughtful, homemade gift can cost as little as $5 to make, so it certainly will not break the bank!
4 small tiles (purchased at a home improvement store in the bath section)
Modge Podge glue
Printed photos (on copy paper from your home printer)
Step 1: measure your tile and print the photographs so that they are only slightly larger than the tile. Print.
Step 2: Cut the photo out and coat the back of the photo with Modge Podge using the paintbrush
Step 3: Place the photo on the tile and weigh it down with a large book to set. Leave until the Modge Podge has dried. Preferably overnight.
Step 4: trim the edges (sand if needed) and brush the while tile with another coat of Modge Podge. Allow to dry and voila!
The Fall is a memorable season across college campuses because of HOMECOMING. While rivalries may run deep, we are all united under the umbrella of a weekend full of tradition and celebration. It is a time of shared experiences with current, past, and future students, and their families.
