Monogram DIY Terra Cotta Coasters
I’ve been wanting to make these terra cotta coasters for a while now, but my 15-month-old has an odd fascination with taking our current junky coasters and throwing them on the floor. I figured terra cotta wouldn’t be the most resilient when thrown against a wood floor. Luckily, my little brother is getting married in a few weeks, and this will make the perfect little gift for their new house!
What You Will Need:
- 4″ terra cotta bases (I got mine in a 6-pack at Hobby Lobby)
- Decorative paper
- Mod Podge
- Acrylic paint (I used Soft Black for the base and a Fuchsia for the D)
- Sponge brush
- Thin brush
- Hot glue
What You Will Need To Do:
- Paint the terra cotta bases the color of your choice. Surprisingly, it dries super fast, and I was able to knock out this entire project in a few hours!
- Once the terra cotta is dried, cut 3-inch circles from the decorative paper.
- Apply a small layer of Modge Podge to the center of the base and lay the paper circle on the top. Press firmly and let dry.
- Once dry, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the top of the paper to seal it in.
- If you’re using a monogram, paint the letter into the center of the base using an accent color and thin paint brush.
- Once the monogram letter is dried, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the entire coaster — top and bottom.
- Cut 3-inch circles from the felt. Hot glue each felt circle to the bottom of the base once the Mod Podge has completely dried.
Done! Now you have a great set of coasters, perfect for indoor or outdoor use! Caution: These are not 15-month-old-proof!
