Normally in Arizona, it’s not humid but we’re having massive over the top rain and humidity. That’s causing extra puddles on our perfectly painted furniture. Wink wink!

Have you ever painted a clay flower pot? If not stop reading this post and go paint a flower pot!!  The clay takes any type of paint beautifully. And especially chalk based paint.  The homemade one I used was made with plaster and tinted gray.

To keep the coasters from scratching our fine furniture. That’s a joke. I cut s circle of burlap and glued on the bottom. Cutting a circle from burlap makes a raggedy circle.

So, I trimmed around the edge after gluing with mod podge.

Now for my paper towel trick. Place a paper towel in the bottom of the saucer. Hold it in place and using a pencil draw around the bottom edge. Now use the paper towel as a template to cut out a burlap circle that fits the bottom.

So let’s get messy!

The piece of burlap I’m using is on its last unraveling. Put it this way, it’s seen a lot of DIY projects. So I cut up small random pieces. Then arranged the pieces on the bottom with the frayed and raggedy areas over the edge of the saucer. More Mod Podge holds the pieces in place.

Then I glued the “boring” circle to the bottom. It still needs something…

Our logo!  Almost twenty years ago I created our logo on a mirror.  Since that time our logo shows up on most DIY projects.

I used a permanent marker and made our logo free hand.

You could add initials for each family member, or a simple drawing that relates to them.  Just keep it basic.  Burlap is a rough texture for fine details.

Plus your details will be covered in sweat anyway, right?

    I’m a big fan of coasters and love this idea! The little saucers I bought for my African violet pots were too shallow, but they are exactly like the ones you’ve used! Now to find my turquoise burlap – perfect with white chalk paint for my beach themed room!
    Paint on your shirt is in style now, don’t worry about it 😉

    1. Andi, if you make so coasters in your beachy theme I hope you send me photos! I always try to show readers how they can take an idea and make it their own. Recreate it in their style. Thank you for reading along. Jeanette
