Terracotta Coasters With Maps

2 Materials

These custom coasters are super durable, functional, and add a conversation piece to your decor. We are using maps on the bottom, but you can customize them with any decorative paper of your choice. You'll love the results, and your furniture will thank you!


  • EnviroTex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish
  • Decoupage
  • Maps (or your own paper)
  • Terracotta saucers
  • Outdoor paint in the color of your choice
  • Circle template or cutter
  • Mixing cups
  • Measuring cups
  • Stir sticks


Paint the terracotta saucers with outdoor paint on both the top and the bottom. This may require several coats. Allow to dry completely in between coats. Painting on all sides gives a more finished appearance to your final product.

Once your paint has dried, you will want to add your paper to the center of the coaster. I used maps cut in a circle shape. Use decoupage to adhere them to the bottom of your saucers. 

TIP: Add decoupage to the back of your circles before adding them to the coaster and allow to dry. This will minimize bubbles when you add to the coasters.
