Hand Painted Decorative Tile


This was a fun project that I had planned to do with a friend. We used to have crafty playdates with our kids (well, we still do it just needs to be after school) but I decided one day we need a crafty mommy date and these are my hand painted decorative tiles.

The tiles were from Lowe's for under $1 each and we used acrylic paint that I already had in my supply and high gloss lacquer that I had leftover and glue leftover felt to the back as well as a wine cork as a stand.

To make these I just prepped the surface by wiping it down with soap and water and then drying it. Then we painted our images on the tile with acrylic paint. When that was paint, we put 2 coats of high gloss clear lacquer on the tiles, allowing it to dry between coats.

My new decorative tiles now reside at our cabin. I thought the color fit in perfectly there, plus I needed some more room decor.
