How to Make a Zen Doodle Coaster

Dear Chicago House,

I have really been into doodling recently (check out some of my creations) and my pot of Sharpies has sat on my desk ever since I created this fabric. It was only a matter of time that the two met!

Check out these fun Zen doodle coasters.

How to create Zen Doodle Coasters

What you need

  • Plain white tiles with a smooth finish ( I was lucky enough to have a whole box of these left behind by the previous owner of my house)
  • Sharpie markers- darker colors work best
  • Imagination!

Start by creating a simple swirl design

The simple add a different doodle to the zones created by the swirl design. To get some inspiration for doodle designs try checking out my zentangle doodle pinterest board.

Here is a tile all doodled up

To fix the ink bake the tiles for 30min in a 350 deg F oven
