It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I’m sure you are all planning your gifts for the special people in your lives. Let me give you an easy and fancy DIY idea that can make a great gift for the holidays.
This DIY is amazing, it actually uses clay instead of marble which is soft to the touch and absorbent. Not only does it look like the real thing, but all coasters came in at under $8!
Heres what you will need:
-Premo Oven Bake Clay in two colors
-Glass or Mug
-Metal bake sheet Start by mixing the two different color premo clays together with your hands, mix the two colors as much as you would like.
Flatten the clay using the rolling pin by covering it with two pieces of parchment paper. Roll it out to a thickness of about 1/8″. Using a large size mug or glass with a thin or sharp rim cut your clay into circles. Repeat this step one through three until you have as many coasters as you would like. I made 5!Then bake at 275 °F for 30 minutes on a parchment lined baking sheet. Take them out and your done!
Your going to love the finish product! All you have to do now is wrap them and check…..one custom handmade gift done! You can see in some of the photos that mine have a slight sparkle that looks like real stone or quartz. Which I think make them look more luxe.
