French Label Coasters


Earlier this month on my Friday Finds, I shared Heather's cute idea for
 terracotta pot saucer coasters over at

Sunshine and Some Tea

My version for my front porch has French labels of course. (You know how I am about French Labels!)

I started with terracotta plant saucers and painted them white. 

Then I decoupaged them with these free French label graphics from The Graphics Fairy
(I added the location of each label below its photo for you.)

And here are my completed French label coasters.

Tres chic, n'est-ce pas? I love that they stack and fit here perfectly on my front porch tray. Super easy and inexpensive, and no more rings on the table top and porch railing from cups, glasses, cans, and bottles! 

I hope you'll leave a comment with a link to your coasters if you make some. I'd love to see what you've done, too. 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

and festive card stock to temporarily change my French Label Coasters
into 4th of July Coasters.)

  8. I just love these--I will have to try making them! And the basket with the little green bird--perfect.

  10. Mon Ami - tres chic. You inspire me. You delight me. A journey to your blog fulfills me Laurel. Again Thank you. Virginia

  11. What a fabulous idea Laurel, did you use a sealer of some kind over them? I would like to make some for my patio.

    Lee ☺

  12. What can't a bottle of mod-podge and something from the Graphics Fairy solve?!

    How Frenchy fun - the perfect summer coaster for my mojitos!

  13. Beautiful and easy, very nice idea, I like them very much as I love decoupage, thank you for sharing this project, it turned out very beautiful.

  14. So simple and lovely. I've been reading many of the projects from the Graphics Fairy blog - and I am finding that I have a lot of things to make! Yours is terrific (and I love the simplicity of it!) Gorgeous.


  15. Laurel,

    I just love these! What a great idea to use those inexpensive terracotta pot holder thingies (I know. You're amazing by my technical speak) ...

    So I pinned them because I need to make some. They'll be perfect for when my diet coke (and Margarita) gets all sweaty in the summer!



  16. Love your coasters! Don't you know how much those would cost in some little chic boutique?!? Yours are so beautifully whimsical. Can you tell me, what size of terra cotta planter saucers you used for them and how much you had to reudce your label to get the correct size? I'm new at this kind of thing and kind of feeling my way through.

  17. I love this idea, and so simple! Looks like you just gave me a new project. I am your newest follower~hope you will pop over for a visit! Angie
