Another Fun Tile Creation!

Hello, all!

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….

  1. That is so cute. I gave your tile idea to my daughter and she and her 4 year old made them for teacher's gifts. Thank you!

  2. Traci the tile is beyond precious! I adore the gingham bows as well. Great job! :)

  3. That is soooo cute. I tried the other tile project which was very easy, but silly me...I left them outside to dry (overnight) and had a dewey mess in the morning. Oops! I think I'll have to try this one - wish me luck! :)

  4. cute, cute! Love it!! Way to go girl!

  5. What a great idea ! I love the idea of bigger ones too! I love your blog, by the way!

  6. Very ~cute. I am going to try some of these for my booth. Thanks for sharing!

  7. What a great idea. I just received my very own Cricut for Christmas. This would be a great idea for vinyl lettering. Can't wait to try it.


  8. This is the coolest idea ever! I am going to make these for sure.
    Thank you!!!

  9. Very cute! I was wondering if the stamp ink would not smear ~ glad to know they have one that doesn't.

  10. So cute...did you spray any protective coating over the top? I love black and white gingham too...used alot of it on Christmas packaging this year. :)

  11. I can confirm they look great monogrammed. We use a Cricut to cut vinyl letters and the rest is a cinch.

    Love your blog! :)

  12. Oh I love this how cute! I meant to comment last night and didn't get a chance. I love your Goodwill story. I wanted to let you know I love it so much I want to share with my friends.

  21. Those are so simple and cute! Nice work. And I love the GW topiaries. The bow really makes them and placed in front of the red plates...woah. Perfection.

    On a side note, I just wanted to say that I always get a little choked up when I look at your blog dedication and comments about your mom. My mom is still around, but I get so sad at thinking of the hole she will leave when she's not. I'm sure your mom would be so honored at your dedication.

  22. I love this! I have so many stamps ~ could make a variety of items. The black & white gingham ribbon is a favorite of mine too. I especially like it in the midst of the reds in your hutch.

  23. Your tile is so very sweet and I am enjoying your blog very much. ~Kelly

  26. So glad you discovered this proeject!

    We did these a few years ago for the Grandparents! The possibilities are ENDLESS!

    Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!
