Step 1: Grab Your Materials

To make these, you will need the following items:

  • a collection of worn VHS covers
  • 4x4 inch ceramic tiles
  • colored cardstock
  • Mod Podge
  • sponge brush
  • stick on felt circles (not shown)
  • scissors

Step 2: Prep Ceramic Tile

To start, cut a piece of cardstock to the same size as your ceramic tile, and attach with Mod Podge.

Step 3: Add Mod Podge

Now, you can brush on a layer of Mod Podge on the card stock, stick your VHS cover image on, and add another layer of Mod Podge on top to seal. Let dry before finishing off in the next step.

Note: You might want to cut off a bit of the case to the size similar to your tile. Also, cut a bit off the sides so you can see the colorful card stock sticking out from both sides of the tile.

Step 4: Add Felt Circles

Finally, finish off with stick on felt circles on all four corners of the ceramic tile!

Step 5: Done!

Now, they're ready to use! These are the VHS cases that I used for my coasters:

  • Sesame Songs: Rock & Roll!
  • Sesame Songs: Monster Hits!
  • Sesame Street Start To Read: Ernie's Big Mess and Other Stores
  • Fraggle Rock: The Haunting of Castle Gorg

I really love the bright colors on these coasters, and you can use them on your own! Just choose your favorite VHS covers and enjoy!
