DIY Terra Cotta: Coasters
Do you use coasters? Well if you don’t, you will want to now! These are so fun and very easy to make! If you don’t use them, at least they make a cute coffee table accessory!
WHAT YOU NEED:
4″ terra cotta saucers
Here is a live demonstration first:
First, primer and spray paint your saucers and let dry
While drying, cut about a 3″ circle out of both your paper and felt, enough for each of your coasters. (I just happened to have a drinking glass with a 3″ top that I traced)
Next, ink the edges of all your paper circles
Then, when your saucers are done drying, mod podge the backs of your paper circles, and place them in your saucer dish. Let dry a few minutes.
Now you can mod podge the tops of your paper circles. Try not to be sloppy with this step, keep the mod podge on the paper as much as you can. But make sure you seal the edges of the paper really well.
Then when the mod podge dries, you’ll want to spray the whole coaster with your sealer (polyurythane) spray paint and let dry completely.
Now you can hot glue your felt circle to the bottom of your coaster!
Wasn’t that easy? Here are a few reasons why you should make your own coasters rather than buy them:
1. They are cheaper! I made 5 coasters for about $5. I saw a set of 4 in Pottery Barn, and they were $30!
2. You can make them to match the room you will be keeping them in. It’s so hard to find the right coasters for your home when you are a ‘matchy’ person!
3. You can make as many as you need! If you were buying coasters, and they sale in a set of 4, but you want six – you would have to buy 2 sets. Why buy when you can make?
