Many of you already know we are obsessed with decorative ceiling tiles so we could not have been more pleased when Paige sent us this image of @amorology‘s use of tin ceiling tiles as chargers. @amorology shared this photo of Amber & Jason's wedding where they used tin ceiling tiles as chargers with fresh bundles of lavender and moon inspired place cards.
DIY Ceiling Tile Chargers
So the ten thousand dollar question is always, “How can I create the look myself?” Surprisingly it is much easier than you might think. First of all, you need to have a very large table. Real tin ceiling tiles are BIG. They are 24″ x 24″. Second, although we generally refer to tin ceiling tiles, you can use either tin or aluminum tiles especially if you do not need them to be magnetic. The advantage of aluminum tiles is that they are available in lots of colors. On the other hand, tin tiles are slightly less expensive but if you want to use them over and over again, they will need to be primed and painted front and back because if not, they will corrode and oxidize.
Both tin and aluminum tiles come in a myriad of styles and you can easily hand paint them to coordinate with your party decor. If you are not too into DIY, our buddy Milan and his team over at Decorative Ceiling Tiles will work with you to create a custom finish and will even apply it for you!

Wait! Wait! As we were scrolling through various ceiling tile options we came up with an idea to save you both space and money. Check out the decorative ceiling tiles featured below. Are you thinking what we are? All you need to do is cut the tiles in quarters and you can make four great 12″ x 12″ chargers. Not only will you save space, you will save lots of money yet still create a similar look!
