Clean the Tiles

Choose tiles with a matte finish, and clean them with plain household vinegar.

Step 1

Apply a Design to the Tiles

Select a design. To use a design from wallpaper or fabric, trace it and use wax-free transfer paper to transfer it to the tiles. Rub-on transfers or stencils is another option. Pre-painted tiles are available in stores, or let children paint their own designs for a wall of memories.

Step 2

Paint the Tiles

Paint the design with epoxy paints and let dry for 24 hours.

Step 3

Bake the Tiles

Bake the tiles in a 325-degree oven for the length of time recommended by the tile manufacturer. Then apply them to the wall as with any ceramic tiles.
