It has been a while since we’ve designed some DIY coasters! These pressed leaf clay coasters are an easy project, perfect for all skill levels. They also can be made to fit whatever season you’re in — depending on the flowers and leaves you choose to use.
Since it’s fall time here, Meagan decided to use leaves for these clay coasters. We are lucky to live in the pacific northwest where there is plenty of greenery to choose from in our own backyards. But you can use whatever is around you, even if that means taking a leaf or flower from a store-bought plant!
Keep calm and clay on

How to Make Pressed Leaf Clay Coasters

- Roll out clay into a tube that is 1 inch thick and about 16 inches long.
- Cut off the ends of the tube using a detail knife, save the most uniform 12 inches of tube.
- Attach the two end of the tube to make a circle, use your fingers and a damp sponge to attach and smooth out the clay. Allow clay to dry completely.
