  • 3.5 x 4.25" Polaroid photos from the Polaroid Pop
  • 4 x 4" white tiles
  • Mod Podge sealer, glue, and finish
  • Brush
  • Felt
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors (Optional)
  • Colored paper (optional)


1. You want to start this project by first gathering all of your materials. We purchased all of our craft materials on Amazon, but I am sure you can get it all at a local craft store as well. Next, you want to decide what Polaroid photos you want to use. With the Polaroid Pop instant digital camera, you can take the pictures you want to use or pair it with your mobile device to print the ones you want. 

2. The next step is an optional one. We cut pieces of colored paper to adhere to the coasters first, so that the white border of the Polaroid photo stands out. You can also buy colored tiles. Or if you like the way the white on white looks, you can skip this step. Just like we will do with the photos themselves, you coat the front of the tile with the Mod Podge glue, place the paper on and let it dry. It should only take around 15 minutes. Then you want to coat the top of the paper with a light layer of glue to seal it down. 

3. If you did the last step, make sure that the paper is totally dry before starting this step. Next, you are going to adhere the Polaroid pictures in the same way that we did the paper. Coating the tile with a thin layer of glue, laying down the Polaroid photo, and letting it dry. Then coat the top layer of the photo and let it dry. 

4. Finally, we want to make sure that these tiles don't scratch any surfaces by adding felt to the bottom of each corner. Cut small squares of felt and use a hot glue gun to stick one to each corner.

And there you have it! Enjoy your DIY Polaroid photo coasters and show us how they came out by sharing your photos with us on Instagram.
