Bible Verse Coasters

These are coasters that I made recently for a friend’s birthday.


Each one includes a Bible verse containing the word JOY, because that’s her name.


This was my first attempt, but they were very easy to make. The porcelain tiles cost 16 cents each, from Lowe’s. The music notes all came from one piece of scrapbook paper from Michael’s. The Bible verses were just printed on regular typing paper in the font of my choice.  There are numerous tutorials online which can show you exactly how to do this, but basically I used a little foam brush to smear some Mod Podge (Please note that this is NOT pronounced “Modge Podge.” I don’t care what everybody says.) all over the tile and stick the papers to it and to each other. Then, when each one had been coated with several layers of Mod Podge, I took them outdoors (very important!) and sprayed them with Mod Podge Acrylic Sealer, which smells horrific and produces terrible fumes, so don’t even consider doing this inside.



I stuck on the little rubber feet that can be bought at Michael’s or Lowe’s, among other places. Some people use cork or felt, but this was the easiest way, though probably the most expensive. Once complete, I tied them up with a black ribbon and had a personalized handmade gift. I could make you some, if you’d like. Any color, any text, name, initials, picture, whatever! $10 should cover it. You’re welcome to email me at
