I'm leaving you a link for the blog I got this from, here.
There are a few things I did to make them in bulk. I used my Cricut Machine to cut out the circles. Super Easy! I bought the clay pot dishes at Hobbly Lobby with a coupon. Super Cheap! I used the same color paint spray that Suzy used on her blog. After traveling to Lowes, Home Depot and Walmart looking for the paint, I found it at Walmart for the cheapest price.
**This is Key: Don't use newspaper under the clay disks to spray paint them. It sticks!!! My friend, Heather, suggested wax paper and it worked brilliantly.
Be patient with the dry times. I wrapped mine with a ribbon and gave them out at Christmas. Everyone loved them. My mom wants some in a bigger size to hold her larger cups. I'll work on that project soon.
Now, on Pinterest there are several coaster ideas. I'm going to list a couple of links below.
I hope these links give you a good start on making some fun and memorable gifts. Be sure to look on my Pinterest board for more ideas.
