Popsicle Stick Coasters
Turn popsicle sticks into beautiful DIY farmhouse style coasters with this simple craft.
Servings: 1 Popsicle Stick Coaster
- 10 plain wood popsicle sticks per coaster
- Hot glue gun
- White chalk paint
- Black chalk paint
- Letter stamps
- Paint brush
- Chalk paint wax
Make the coaster by laying eight popsicle sticks in a line on a flat surface.
Cut the ends of the remaining two sticks, making sure they’re the correct length to fit along the top and bottom of the row of eight sticks. Make sure the popsicle sticks are evenly aligned, then place a line of hot glue along the top of the sticks.
Press one of the trimmed sticks in place and hold until the glue has set. Repeat the process along the bottom of the popsicle sticks.
Flip the coaster over and paint the top using white chalk paint.
When the paint has dried, spread a thin layer of black chalk paint over a flat surface. Carefully dip your letter stamps into the paint, then press them onto the coasters to spell words.
Allow the coasters to dry completely, then spread a layer of wax over the top to protect the paint and wood from water damage. Treat the coasters with another layer of wax every month to keep them from being damaged.
