I haven’t posted for a while but it’s been such a wonderful month in our house. Exactly a month ago today, I went from girlfriend to fiancée! That’s right, your girl is marrying her best friend and I CANNOT wait. With all of the fun events leading up to the wedding, you know there will be some DIY projects. Make sure to stay tuned and follow the blog to see all of the updates.
These pallet coasters were so fun to make and I might be a little biased but they are super cute. The best part about them is that you can change up what they say or have on them to fit you better. My mom went with a holiday stamp and I went with stamping some personalized phrases.
- Jumbo popsicle sticks
- ¼ in. Square Wooden Dowel
- Hot glue gun
- Stamp Pad
For each coaster, cut 5 popsicle sticks into 4 inch long pieces. I used a scroll saw but a sharp craft knife or scissors could work as well. To make sure it’s squared off, you will need to cut off of both sides. Cut the dowel into three 4 inch long pieces for each coaster.
Begin by laying out the popsicle sticks on top of the cut dowels to make sure you like the spacing.
Hot glue the top or bottom popsicle stick to the 3 dowels. Then continue to glue the remaining 4 popsicle sticks making sure that it’s squared off and no dowels are sticking out.
Cut 4 small ½ inch pieces of felt and glue to the four corners of the coaster bottom.
Add the desired design to the top of the coaster.
