I love these! Personally though I don't think they need anything at all. I've still never tried to do tiles...I guess I'm nervous I'll mess them up. Maybe I'll try them soon. Thanks for sharing with us...love them!!!

Was the glitter applied dirrectly onto the tile? And ModPoge? - is that how you sealed it instead of the acrylic sealer? One more - how did you get the chalking so dark on the tile, mine is always lite?

These are really beautiful! I don't think they need anything. Maybe a black ribbon around them to hang . . unless you already have a hanger on back. But they're truly a work of art!

I have been asked to post the directions for these. I used cocktail holiday napkins that I had left over from last year. I am sure there are many cute ones in the stores now.
I stamped the verse on the bottom of the tile with StazOn Black then put on a thin coat of Mod Podge over the entire tile, I used both the glossy tile and the tumbled tile, they are both cute. I placed my napkin design on top, patted gently into postion and then did another coat of Mod Podge over the entire tile, sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on top of that and let it set up. I put at least 5 coats of Mod Podge over the design and also sponged the edges with Ultramarine StazOn.
One thing I learned is just to use one layer of the napkin or it won't sit right. Peel all the additional layers off.
