DIY Farmhouse Coasters

 
 
 
 Set of 4 coasters ready for gift giving!
 
This is  how I made them -
 


I found this game at the DOLLAR TREE in the toy section.
 
Tumbling Tower  is a stacking game. It comes with 36 wood blocks,
 
perfect for crafting.
 
 


I worked with one package at a time.
 
Every package will make 3 coasters.
 
Two packages will make 6 coasters.
 
I wanted to make sets of 4 coasters so I purchased 4 packages.





 
 This is the pattern I used to glue my pieces.
 
 
 
 
I used Elmer's Wood Glue.
 
It dries fast and strong.
 
No sanding necessary.
 
 
It makes a Parquet design.



I used my favorite  BRIWAX stain. It leaves a beautiful wax finish in one step.

Dark Brown is my go- to color.


 
Use a soft cloth, allow time to dry.

 
Dollar Tree has these cork dots. You can stick the dots
 
on the back side to protect your furniture. 
 
 

 
I decided to bundle the coasters in sets of 4.
 
SO......4 PACKAGES FOR $4
 
Made 3 gift sets of 4 coasters....
 
I hope I didn't confuse you with my MATH !








Bonus: To use as a TRIVET, put 4 side by side.




 
Tied the sets together.
 
 
 
Then I added a small piece of greenery.


 
 


I may bundle a set to go with my coffee tray.






Let me know if you like this quick and easy project.

I really enjoy sharing with you.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today!

  1. These coasters are so cute! Did you have to use a clamp when you wood glued them together?

    1. Thanks Debra
      No I did not need a clap. The tiles are surprisingly good quality. Just lay flat. They fit together nicely with no gaps.
      THANKS FOR VISITING- xo LISA S

  7. Thanks for the great idea! I hope my $tree has the game. I will be making these to give this year instead of making candy! I may even go a step further and stamp their initial on it.
