tips & tricks // Dry Erase Coasters

Dry erase Coasters

I don’t venture into the DIY world very often, but the idea for dry erase coasters has been in my journal for months and I finally got around to making it happen. I like anything that can help engage my guests while also being reusable and, if I am making it, it needs to be quick and easy. Write a fun fact, a question, or even a game of tic-tac-toe at your next soirĂ©e. The possibilities are endless.

DIY Dry Erase Coasters
{How To Make}
Step 1. Tape two opposite sides of the tile leaving a small line exposed.
Step 2. Paint both the side and small top line of tile with two coats (just like your nails) and let dry.
Step 3. Remove tape from painted sides and tape remaining two sides.
Step 4. Repeat painting process and let dry.
Step 5. Stick four felt pads on the bottom corners of each tile.
Step 6. With a dry erase marker write or draw away!

  1. Oh I love this! And using nail polish is savvy because it gives you a ton of unique color options and you can use what you already have at home. When I get my new apartment, I’m definitely making these!

    Love it!! Thought about also using long narrow tiles or larger tiles for hot plates for buffet, dinner parties and labeling each dish.SB Pilot Hill

    How well does the nail polish stay on the tile after being used? I was just curious if you put any sort of top coat on the paint to seal it in?
