DIY Drink Coasters

What You’ll Need:

Step 1:

Paint the Saucers!IMG_0048.JPG

  • Make sure to remove the stickers on the bottom
  • I would recommend darker colors. I tried white with my first batch and it took multiple coats and twice as much time.
  • Exterior paint is more water resistant

Step 2:

Cut Out the Corkboard Circles!IMG_0049 (1).JPG

  • The link I have above is for a decorative bulletin board I found at Walmart. Once the circles are cut and trimmed, they fit perfectly in the saucers.

Step 3:

Coat  the Corkboard Circle with Mod Podge!

  • Make sure to paint it thick
  • Leave it to dry for a few hours. I suggest leaving something heavy on them so that there are no air bubbles between the corkboard and saucerIMG_0050.JPG

Step 4 (Optional):

  • If you’re worried about the Terra Cotta saucers damaging your table or you notice they don’t slide across surfaces well enough, add some felt pads.
  • I cut the 3/4inch pads in half and then stuck four halves to the bottom of each saucer


Step 5:

Admire Your Work!
