Make DIY Confetti Coasters For Parties Using White Tiles

Make DIY confetti coasters for your next party or just for everyday use.  I use mine for everyday because they make me smile. The coasters are so pretty with the bold colorful confetti. You guys know I love to surround myself with color.

The coasters are inexpensive to make and take no time at all, less than 30 minutes (allowing for drying time). And……..you just have to smile when you look at them. These bright little dots have my name all over them. Bold colors are right up there with chocolate on my list of favorite things. This coaster idea can be customized using different colors of confetti or special confetti with words, dates, etc.

How To Make Confetti Tile Coasters

4 Ceramic Tiles from the local home improvement store
Cork or sticky cushion pads
Mod Podge – Hard Coat and Gloss Formulas
Mod Podge Brush


Hard Coat Mod Podge and Brush for confetti coaster project

There are so many formulas of Mod Podge I can’t keep up with all of them. I really like the furniture gloss and I like the matte finish Mod Podge too.

Hard Coat Mod Podge coaster project

Step 1. Apply Hard Coat Mod Podge to the ceramic tile.

A Mod Podge brush is perfect for this step. I applied a pretty thick coat of Mod Podge to the tile. The brush with the short bristles makes applying the Mod Podge super easy.

Step 2. Sprinkle confetti onto the tiles.

pour confetti in a box before starting coaster project

It was kind of hard to get the confetti out of the bag so I poured it all into a box so I could pick up the little pieces.

I got a handful of confetti and sprinkled it on the tiles all willy-nilly. I left some of the confetti in layers just as it fell and some I spread out. The larger dots of confetti I laid on the coasters and worked around them with the smaller dots.

Step 3. Apply Hard Coat Mod Podge over the confetti.

Once the layer of confetti and Mod Podge is dry, coat the tile with several layers of Hard Coat Mod Podge allowing for drying time in between layers.

Step 4. Apply a layer of Gloss Mod Podge

You guys know I like the shiny stuff. I applied one layer of Gloss Mod Podge as the finishing touch because the  Hard Coat Mod Podge isn’t real glossy. The confetti was shiny to start with but a little extra shine is always nice.

Step 5. Add table protector pads

Now we need to add something to the bottom of the tiles to protect the table. I had a roll of cork in my stash so that’s what I used for the coaster pads. I cut a small square of cork for each corner and glued them on using regular glue. Pre-cut adhesive pads would work great too.

Look at all that sparkle and shine. I would use these at my New Year’s Eve party. The guests would uh and ah over them. Brings a big smile to my face. This little set is a gift for a friend. These are so pretty you don’t even have to wrap them. Just stack them and tie a bow around them.

  4. The table protector pads are a great idea. I’d like to give a couple of sets of these colorful coasters as hostess gifts. Merry Christmas!

  5. These are so cute! I’ve made coasters with photos and napkins before, but I really like this idea as well. I’ll have to keep it in mind. It would make a fun Birthday gift too.

  6. Kathy, those are so pretty and cheerful! I love that you can use any color tile too, although white looks great with the little dots, which remind me of Tiddly Winks. It looks like an easy project. I would be delighted to receive a set of these as a gift, so I’m sure the recipient of yours will be pleased.

  7. This is a fav “Kathy” project. Love the clean, fresh look for Spring. Love your photos! What a great project! ~~Homerun~~ XOX Susie from The Chelsea Project

  8. I love them Kathy!!!…yes.. great gifts and a great guest gift for your New Year’s guests too!

  9. Not really. Some of the pieces might move a bit but the Mod Podge does a good job of holding them in place. Put a layer of Mod Podge on the tiles before putting the confetti on.

  10. I love your confetti coasters, but was wondering does they confetti not move when you apply the mode podge? Thanks.

  11. Love your colorful coasters, Kathy and how awesome would they be on New Year’s Eve! Pining and sharing 🙂
