Colorful Clay Coasters DIY

If you're looking for a last-minute, super easy DIY project to make for your guests arriving to Thanksgiving tomorrow, here are some colorful coasters we recently made for the studio. Inspired by colorful clay necklaces, they're a beverage-friendly version that can be made in no time at all.

Colorful Clay Coasters DIY

You'll need:
-polymer clay (FIMO or Sculptey)
-rolling pin
-circle cookie cutter (we used a circle cookie cutter 3.5" in diameter)
-optional: glitter

Here's how:
1. Preheat your oven to 265 degrees. Then, use a rolling pin to flatten out the clay to your desired thickness.

2. Use the cookie cutter to cut out your circle. Then create a pattern by adding other colored clay on top and using the rolling pin to flatten the clay. 

3. Place your coasters on a baking sheet and bake at 265 for 30 mins (or based on the specific clay's directions).

  1. Hi Joy – so the designs on these coasters are also made of clay and not paint? And the glitter went on before baking? These are so awesome, I am going to try making them this weekend for gifts. I might also paint and seal. Thanks!

  2. This is a DIY I can get behind! From a non-crafty person who envies creative, artistic people, this is so simple. I am definitely doing this with my nieces. So cute, so fun. Thank you!

  3. I just bought some clay to do this weekend! Question for you – will I need to use one full color for the circle part of the coaster? Thanks!

  4. Me too! Good question! I just rolled out one block and there’s no way it will make one coaster. I’m thinking I might need two blocks?
