So today I am switching things up again and holding off on the furniture/Room Reveals and posting about a quick and simple project which are these DIY Flower Coasters.
In case you haven’t seen my previous clay adventure you can check out my DIY Marbled Clay Bowl, DIY Marbled Bottled Makeover, DIY Clay Fridge Magnets, Cactus Clay Ring Holder and many more Clay projects that I have created.
Supplies you need to for these Clay Flower Coasters
Oven Bake Clay (this is my go to clay for every project I have created)
DecoArt Flower Stencil
Round Foam Brush or Stencil Brush
Empty Round Bowl
X-Acto Knife or Butter Knife
I used two shades of clay on one coaster which was a blue and purple combination.
For the other one I went with a grey and bright pink combination
I rolled the clay into medium sized balls and molded them both together until combined. Play around with the colors until they are slightly blended.
After that I flattened it with an empty bottle that I had on hand and that is when you can see the beautiful marbling details.
Use an empty circular bowl as a template to cut the coasters as perfectly round as possible.
At this point I placed it on a baking tray and let these coasters bake for about 15 mins at 275F.
When I took them out and were cooled, that is when I started the stenciling process onto the coasters.
I chose Gold as the main color and with a round foam brush I went ahead and stenciled it all on my baked coasters.
The DecoArt stencil which I chose was the perfect size for the round coasters.
Just take a little amount of the Gold Paint, brush off the excess on a cloth and then lightly dab onto the stencil.
I did it on both the coasters.
The last step is optional but it adds a nice little touch.
I used a clear Clay Glaze on top of the coasters to give a nice little sheen as well as to protect the design.
Give it a day to fully dry and there you have it.
You’re very own stunning DIY Clay Flower Coasters are ready to be used.
