Hi, we are Danielle (Food Love and Happiness) and Nelly (Brown Girl Decor Blog) welcome to week 3 of our #NORULESCHRISTMAS series. For the past few weeks, we have been sharing a festive recipe and a fun DIY project each week. Why the name no rules Christmas? Well, we are breaking the rules of the traditional sit-down Christmas feast and serving dessert first.
Any party or gathering is made instantly more festive with a little special drink to toast the occasion and each other. Well, guys today Danielle is showing us how to make Christmas sangria for our #NORULESCHRISTMAS table. I’m showing you how to make your own air dry clay coasters to use on your holiday table or give as a gift.
First, let me fill you in on the fun stuff that Danielle and I have shared over the last few weeks in our #NORULESCHRISTMAS series.
Now on to this weeks clay coasters DIY.
What you will need.
- Air drying clay
- cookie cutter
- Paint markers
- Mod podge (or sealant of choice)
- Rollin pin
Start by rolling out your clay. You want to get it to about 1 to 1,5 cm thick. Cut out your rounds with the cookie cutter and leave them to dry completely. This is a really fun project to do with kids. I had my oldest son help with this bit. I used white clay so I could go ahead with the decorating as soon as the clay was dry.
After your design is dry, paint 2 coats of Mod Podge over your project to make it water resistant. I didn’t think to do this with my coasters and they stained after the first use. So top tip! If you want to give them as gifts check out my cookie tin container DIY here for packaging ideas.
I would love to hear from you if you try any of the recipes or DIY projects. Take a picture and share it on social media using #NORULESCHRISTMAS.
