DIY Snowflake Coasters
I wasn’t going to let another year go by without making these coasters, and I’m so glad I did. They turned out so cute.
Coasters make a great gift for pretty much anyone, and these are super easy to make!
At this time of year, I usually decorate my windows for the holidays with cut snowflakes. They’re always fun to make, and I love creating different patterns.
The paper snowflakes usually come down after the holidays are over, but I’d keep these DIY Wood Slice Coasters out all winter.
It sounds like I’m going to keep this set, doesn’t it?
How to Make Snowflake Coasters
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own set of snowflake coasters:
- 4 wood slice coasters (I purchased mine at Michaels, but these wood slices are similar.)
- snowflake template (scroll to end of post for a free printable file)
- white craft paint
- small paint brushes
Start by printing and cutting out the snowflake templates. Center the templates on the coasters and tape into place.
Trace the snowflake with a pen, pressing lightly so it leaves an indentation on the coaster.
Fill in the snowflake with the white paint.
Take your time and don’t worry if it’s not exactly perfect, mine sure weren’t!
You could also try using a paint pen.
To finish, go over your DIY Wood Slice Coasters with a few coats of polyurethane, letting the coasters dry in between each coat.
This will protect the flakes and to keep the wood from staining.
I packaged my DIY Wood Slice Snowflake Coaster with a red ribbon … simple, yet pretty!
