DIY Marble Cement Plant Coaster

I originally wanted to take this project in a whole different direction, but even my husband was like “It’s going to be way too expensive for people to recreate.”  Initially, I wanted to make the plant coaster you see here today, but turn it into a full on plant stand with copper pipes.   So after a long, failed search for the copper cross I needed to pull this idea completely together, I settled. 

While creating a plant stand out of copper pipes would have given me that cool, industrial look I love, I’m pretty satisfied with this plant coaster as it is.  It combines two of my DIY loves – cement and marble – and you won’t believe how easy it is to make!  Pour, stick, add a plant.  Done!

DIY Marble Cement Plant Coaster


  • Marble contact paper
  • Fast dry cement
  • X-Acto knife
  • Round mold or cake pan


  1. Follow instructions on the cement package to form your cement mixture.  Mix cement mixture in a plastic container.  Add a little bit of water at at time to the cement to achieve a paste-like consistency.
  2. Working quickly, pour cement into a round mold.  Allow cement to dry and harden.
  3. When cement is completely solid, carefully pop it out of the mold.
  4. Next, use the top of the cement round to trace a circle on the back of the marble contact paper.
  5. Cut the circle out carefully using an X-Acto knife.
  6. Peel and stick the marble contact paper onto the cement round.
  7. Your new plant coaster is done!  Now, go and get yourself a pretty plant to sit on top of it!
