Framed tiles3:05:00 PM
Can you tell that I am on a big "tile" kick lately? I love taking my kids to the ceramics shops to paint. But there really is only so many piggy banks and figurines you can have before they start to take over your home! I wanted to do something framed that we could keep forever and the kids would enjoy looking back at.
First off I suggest you find some good friends to tag along! It makes the whole experience THAT much more fun!
I had my kiddos each paint 1 tile (we did the 4x4" tiles) anyway that they would like! I was really impressed with their work! I then painted tiles 1 solid color (I did 3 layers...blow drying in-between layers to make sure it was fully covered!) I then painted their hands with a color of their choice and stamped their hand down on my tile I had already pre-painted.
Stick your tiles in the desired spot 1 at a time. I pressed down to be sure they were firmly set! Stick aside till completely dry (I would wait about 24 hours!)
My 3 frames were ready for hanging so I had the kids help me find the perfect spot!
