DIY Photo Tiles

I love the look of these photo tiles.

They only take a few minutes to make, are very inexpensive (under $3), and are awesome for customized gifts. March 2013 025 Ideally, I would have printed this photo out as 6″x6″ to fit the tile, but unfortunately it cropped our heads off at that size.  I really wanted to use this particular photo so I just fit it as best I could.

  • Step 1: Gather your supplies – photo (I used a 5×7), tile (from Lowes), Mod Podge, brush, paper trimmer (or scissors)
  • Step 2: Crop photo to fit tile.
  • Step 3: Brush Mod Podge onto tile, completely covering the surface.
  • Step 4: Position the photo, then brush Mod Podge over entire photo.
  • Step 5: Repeat and let dry completely.

  1. Will be doing this! Love the photo by the way. You pretty much the prettiest person I have EVER seen.

  2. Do you find the little stand at Michael’s? Love the picture! Easy to do…I think I could even do this one. 😉

    1. No it was $1 at Walmart. It was ugly gold so I gave it a coat of oil rubbed bronze. Much better. 🙂

  3. can you add a sealant to it? because after many months of use, mine are starting to get water spots….not terrible, but i appear to have leprosy in one of the pictures now.

    1. I didn’t add anything other than mod podge to these since they won’t come into contact with water but for coasters I would add a sealant.

  4. I have tiles,need to print pictures…I love these, been planning to mk sm for ages…. Yours turned out awesomesauce
