How to Make a Photo Tile Collage

Pin It Post Buttons

Do you remember the DIY Photo Coaster Tutorial I shared with you back last fall?

Well frugal friend Lori shared a fun new twist on the concept…  a Photo Tile Collage!

It’s just stunning… and would make a great, thrifty gift!

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • First… you’ll need to complete your Photo Tiles ~ go here for step-by-step instructions.
  • After your tiles are finished and dry, you will need to choose a backing.
  • Lori chose an 8×10 back of a photo frame {yep ~ just the back}, and cut it to the exact size she needed it to fit the tiles.  You can cut it small so none of it shows, or leave the edges as a border ~ it’s up to you!
  • If you need to make adjustments, you can also cut the part that stands the picture frame up to where you need it to be.
  • Glue your tiles to the frame back.
  • Lori used hot glue and e6000.  The tiles are heavy, so she definitely recommends using the e6000, too!
  • All done!  {wasn’t that easy??}

Make one for yourself, or give one as a beautiful, thrifty gift!

Thanks Lori for sharing this fun project!!

    I am in L-O-V-E with this idea. We just had family pictures done at the beach and this would be a PERFECT way to display some of the fun photos….

    I really like this idea. I made the photo coasters for gifts at Christmas and everyone loved them!

    My husband also suggested that we get the large size tiles and make a wall hanging.
