DIY Stepping Stone Art

by Jenna Gleason

This art project is a fun, easy and inexpensive way to express your child's creativity. With just a few materials your kids can create beautiful designs. Tile art is a great rainy summer day indoor activity!


Tile Pieces

Rubbing Alcohol (91% preferably)




  1. Wipe your tile pieces with a wet paper towel.
  2. Draw! This art won't be a portrait or a landscape for example, but more abstract, so have fun with it!
  3. Pour alcohol over the marker on the tile. You can do drops, single pours or spray bottles, each way leaves a different type of marble design. No to much, just enough to spread the ink on the tile pieces. Then you can let it dry the way it is and see a marble like piece of art. If you see the alcohol is too much and is taking way too much color just blot it off with a paper towel and you'll see a different type of tile art! Then your done. Wait for it to cool off and you’ve got a cool piece of tile art!

Glue tiles together to make a giant art piece to hang on the wall or fill a room with them! Use them for a craft room; the floor would look unique and colorful. Use them as a background on a wall, or glue them in cool designs and show them off in your kids play room. If your kids want more fun for later, wipe off the tiles with alcohol and they will be as good as new. Have fun with it!
