DIY Coasters Craft: Winter Woodland

Winter Woodland DIY Coasters CraftI love anything woodland themed. I think it’s because I really enjoy the outdoors – I do have a Forestry degree! I love these theme so much that I have a Gnome and Woodland Pinterest board where I keep all of my crafty outdoorsy inspiration. I finally took some of that woodland energy and made these DIY coasters. What happened was that I found the wood slices first at Michaels, and realized that with some easy stenciling I could turn them into winter woodland coasters in minutes. So that’s what I did. Here’s how I made them (it’s so easy!).

Gather These Supplies

Because I used the FolkArt Multi-Suface paint, I didn’t need to seal, but you can put a sealer on them if you want to.
