Decorating Tips

LOVE! These DIY coasters look so easy to make and you can use whatever patterns or letters you want. Quick, easy and affordable gift idea!

This post is sponsored by Mohawk Consumer Products.  As always, all opinions are 100% mine from using its awesome products for myself.

If you often find yourself searching for gift ideas for friends and family (or if you just like making cute things for your own home, then you are going to LOVE these easy DIY coasters.  It took me less than 7 minutes to make 4 DIY coasters and would have moved even faster if I hadn’t been filming so that I could show you how I did it with a video. 

Best of all, this project only requires a few supplies that you can order off of Amazon without ever leaving your house :)  That’s my kind of project.  This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.  Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

You can watch the video below to see exactly how I made my DIY coasters.  There are written instructions below the video as well. 

 

 

 

Steps to make these DIY coasters:

1) I started by lightly drawing out the pattern I wanted to use on my coasters.  You could draw absolutely anything you want.  I opted for a variety of geometric patterns and one large A, since our last name starts with an A.

I think grabbed my Mohawk Pro-Mark Wood Touch-Up Marker and used my straight-edge to trace the pattern.  After the first pass, I free-handed two more passes just to make the lines thicker. 

Once I was done, I added one coat of statin polyurethane and allowed them to dry.  Take a look at how they turned out.

I absolutely LOVE these DIY coasters and seriously can’t believe how quick and easy they were to make.  Not only do I plan to make more for our house, but I can’t wait to make some of these as gifts for friends and family.  So, if you fall into that category, don’t be surprised if you get a set of these soon :)
