Getting Crafty: Using ReStore Products in Crafts

The ReStore sells a lot of different materials that can be used in craft projects. They are much more inexpensive and can help make crafting more affordable. Here's how-to make adorable coasters that can be given as gifts for the holidays!

Purchase tiles from the ReStore for as inexpensive as $.10 a tile!!

Materials you will need: tiles, alcohol ink (try Adirondack from a craft store like JoAnn), rubbing alcohol, aerosol finisher (Mod Podge makes one you can get at Wal Mart), paintbrush, paint, rubber pads

1. Coat your tile with rubbing alcohol.

2. Drip different colors of alcohol ink on your tile. Let the ink slide around for a bit before adding another color. If you feel like you've messed up or added too much, use a paper towel to dab up some of the ink.

3. Let the surface dry. Once it's dry to the touch, spray a coat of aerosol finisher to seal in the colors and make them pop!

4. Once the aerosol has dried, use your paint to paint the sides of your coasters. This will cover up any ink that may have dried on the edges.

5. Add rubber pads to the bottom of your coasters and package them with a cute ribbon for a great gift!
