Sip your beverage in style this summer with these DIY coasters made from terra cotta. This Terra Cotta Melon Coaster is a snap to make, and its watermelon theme is perfect for summer. These creative clay craft ideas are completely adorable and totally useful. Making a set of these coasters is great practice for crafters who aren't confident about their painting abilities. These coasters would be a big hit at a summer barbeque. They also make wonderfully original hostess gifts.
