Cut pieces of lace to cover tiles. Mist 1 side of lace with spray adhesive; adhere it to a tile, smoothing any wrinkles.
Spray-paint with your desired color: Hold can 6 inches from surface, sweeping slowly from side to side. Let dry for 1 minute.
Carefully peel off lace; place on another tile (you can reuse one piece 3 or 4 times; you don't need to reapply adhesive).
Let dry. Attach felt or cork surface protectors to the undersides.
