Crafty Ideas for Tile

Tile can be used for just about anything. Whether you have enough to cover your kitchen floor or if you only have a single tile, there are still plenty of uses for any kind of tile.

Other than using it as flooring, tile can be used to accent your home in many ways.

Look at how cute these drink coasters are! Just one medium-sized tile is needed for each coaster. Use a larger tile to create a trivet for hot dishes to rest on.

Just think of all the paper we could save by using these nifty table signs at parties and events! They are even dry-erasable and can be reused over and over again.
