Hello again! This is Shonee from Hawthorne and Main, and I am super excited to be here with you today!! With the weather stating to warm up ( in some parts of the world) I thought I would share this great idea for DIY Chalkboard Coasters.
Have you even been to a party or family gathering and you find yourself asking or someone else asking “Is this drink mine or your’s?” This happens all the time when we have parties. With these chalkboard coasters everyone will know what drink is theirs!!
Plus, these coasters are totally customizable and they would make the best hostess gift!  Just sayin’
Here are the supplies you will need:
6- Round pieces of wood (got mine at Joann for about $.50 each)
1- can chalkboard spray paint
6-  different colors of acrylic paint
1- small foam paint brush
1- sheet of felt  (8.5×11)
1- Chalk board marker
1- Piece of Sand paper
glue
To begin, use a fine grit piece of sandpaper to sand all of the edges of your wood pieces. Focusing on the sides and top, you don’t need to worry about sanding the bottom.
Once everything is smooth go out side and spray the wood pieces with the chalkboard paint.  It is up to you if you want to spray both sides.

 

After the paint is dry, bring them back inside and use your foam paint brush to paint just the edges of each disk.  Be earful not to get any paint on the top of the wood pieces.  Let the paint dry.
Now that the edges have a pretty splash of color, it is time to add the felt.
 Cut out 6 circles from the felt.  The circles should be just smaller that the wood piece.  This way they won’t show.  Using craft glue, glue the felt circles to the bottom of each wood piece.   Done!!

    What a clever idea, and simple enough that even a non-crafter like myself could do it! 🙂
