Coasters are a great way to use up scrap wood while making something useful at the same time! Drink coasters protect your coffee table from condensation and drips, and display your personality too.
You can glue up thin strips to make striped patterns, or use flat scrap pieces to create designs with a wood burning tool. The only limit is your imagination!
Those stripes aren’t paint! They’re actually thin strips of dyed wood veneer sandwiched between pieces of maple. It’s a fun way to add a pop of color to an otherwise boring wooden coaster!
Watercolors aren’t just for art projects! These pretty DIY coasters are made from plywood, with a stenciled design burned on top. Then color it in with watercolor pencils and add water to watch it blend! You could use the same pencils to create coasters with an ombre effect, then apply an acrylic sealer to make them waterproof.

Believe it or not, that stripe of marble is actually contact paper! I’ve used contact paper on my kitchen countertop and storage cabinets, but never like this! You could do the same thing with cute wrapping paper or scrapbook paper and mod podge.
Love the look of wood burning, but don’t have the tool on hand? Use acrylic paint and a stencil to create the same effect on these wood slice coasters!
