I’ve done a couple of DIY Coaster projects in the past but this is my all time favorite!
It could well be because I’m in mad love with Terra Cotta these days but mad-love aside, these coasters are super quick and easy and wouldn’t they make a great hostess gift or party favor for spring or summer?!?!
Before I show you how to make these cute Terra Cotta Coasters let’s look at some other DIY Coasters I’ve done:
#1~ Terra Cotta Coasters- I’ll show you how in just a sec!
The DIY Terra Cotta Coasters might be the easiest of all these little coasters! Just grab a few terra cotta saucers from the Home Depot, they’re less than a dollar each!
Then paint them! I used the ‘Aging Terra Cotta’ Technique I posted about HERE
I have been aging my terra cotta flower pots like crazy but I still had a little of this Stone Texture Spray (from Home Depot)
And all ya do is spray-let dry(for at least 2 hours)- sand until you like the look…
Wipe some watered down craft paint on the terra cotta- (I used white and sage green)…let dry & sand again.
Then I used the left over burlap stenciled ribbon from my Table Runner posted HERE & the Add Burlap to a Table posted HERE and cut circles to fit into the bottom of the saucers. Using Mod Podge on the bottom of saucer–add the burlap circles and add more Mod Podge on top of the burlap…let dry completely.
Spray with 2 coats of Rust Oleum Polyurethane and add felt circles or cork to the bottom of the coasters.
