DIY Fall Tile Board

Hopefully you're all ready for fall! Here's a fun little DIY fall project.

30" x 6" pre-cut board *Optional: 1" allowable routed edge

Spray paint (we used "Espresso" satin finish made by Rust-oleum Painters Touch from Home Depot)

6 4 x 4 white tiles

Mod Podge (deco-podge)

Sponge brush

60 Grit Sandpaper

Optional: Brayer (small roller used for wallpapering)

Industrial Strength Glue (E6000, works well and can be found at hardware or craft stores)

(2) white cardstock

1.) Cut, route, sand, and dust a 30" x 6" board. Paint the board your desired color. Let dry overnight.
2.) If you get glossy tile, lightly sand it to take a little of the finish off. Your paper will adhere better.
3.) Download and print the decals and FALL letters onto white cardstock. Cut out each letter and decal. An actual size of a 4 x 4 tile is 4.25 x 4.25 and each letter and decal I made is a 4 x 4, so it won't fill the tile. Apply a thin coat of Mod podge. Brush it evenly in one direction. With clean hands, carefully center the paper on the tile. It doesn't dry immediately, so you have a little time to adjust accordingly. Position your photo and press down firmly. Use the brayer (mini roller) to smooth out the photo and remove any bubbles, or lightly press until all bubbles are removed. Let it dry for about 30 minutes.
4.) Spread an even thin layer of Mod podge on top of the tile (over the picture). Brush it all in one direction. Wait about 15 minutes to dry. Brush a second coat of Mod Podge. Let it dry for a few hours.
5.) Lay your tiles across the wood board before gluing them down. Space accordingly. Take the tile one at a time and spread glue across the back of the tile. Press the tile to the board in the desired spot.
6.)Let dry over night
