DIY Domino Tiles
We all remember B’s amazing backsplash, right?
It’s so drop dead gorgeous (& even better in person)! Well, once Bridget finished up that project she had quite a few leftover pieces of tile. It seemed like a shame to get rid of the tile, or to just have it sit around in her garage, so we decided to come up with a way to give a new life to the tile pieces.
We ended up making these domino tiles for a little coffee table decor. We went with domino tiles because the were the perfect size and shape to mimic the game pieces. Plus they were so incredibly easy to make. Here’s the how-to…
- Stencil (or something round to trace)
- Hot Glue
I simply looked at some real domino tiles and mimicked the look. I found a stencil at the craft store with various circle sizes, so I used those to make perfect circles. As for the line in the middle, you can just use a ruler and make the line a little thicker.
Then, I cut some felt for the bottom and hot glued it right on.
It only took about 20 minutes to make 6 tiles, and I could have kept going to make an entire set…it was that easy.
They’re currently sitting on my coffee table in a cute little bowl from West Elm. It adds a little bit of whimsy to the area and shows off our love of games! I also think they could make for an adorable paperweight on an office desk. Perhaps to hold down colorful cards or pretty paper.
It just goes to show that it’s a-okay to think outside the box when it comes to supplies. Giving excess materials a new life is what the DIY spirit is all about, and it’s always fun for us to challenge ourselves to create something cool.
Now can someone teach me how to play dominos?
