I recently realized that we don't have many coasters in the house. But there is an easy fix to the problem - simple clay round coasters save the day! And my tabletop from too many of the coffee cups that I consume recently.
Summer is in full swing here and we are having fun, enjoying warm days, and dream of the fall.
I have a few huge projects coming up and quite excited about it!
These are so simple, easy, and cheap that literally, anyone could do it. But let's get things moving.
- clay (I made a mix from Just Orange and Chocolate )
- something round, I used this cookie cutter set)
- gold leaf paint ( I got mine a long time ago, but I'm sure it was cheaper in Michaels)
- rolling pin
Mix clay as per instructions. Or purchase clay of the desired color originally from the store.
I like Sculpey clay, the one where you need to bake it.
I like this pottery color but it doesn't seem Sculpey makes it anymore, it was discontinued a while ago. So I took 5 parts Sculpey III Just Orange (1634) + 1 part Sculpey III Chocolate (053). You can find a link for mixing discontinued Sculpey colors here.
Make a pancake from clay, using a rolling pin. Take something round to make the circle of the size that you want.
Bake clay as per instructions.
When it's dry and ready, take washi tape or frog tape and tape the design that you like. I just chose a few simple lines of gold leaf. I also painted trim with gold leaf.
I added a small layer of cork sheet on the bottom to prevent the clay from scratching the tabletop. If you don't have a cork sheet, you can use felt.

I think these simple clay coasters look super cute! I'll make another batch soon since two are clearly not enough. I feel they are a perfect addition to my boho-inspired new office. I love the combination of pottery color, greenery, and bright wall design.
