Original Coasters

This is really easy to make. You need popsicle sticks–you can buy them at a crafts store or make a huge sacrifice to eat popsicles and save the sticks, wash them thoroughly and let them dry. I bought mine. You also need a glue gun and glue for it, acrylic paint and acrylic varnish. I put my sticks on a row and glued four on the back. I also went through the ridges  on the back, very slightly, just to seal them.

Then think what you are going to paint. make a sketch on paper and be careful with the scale of what you want to paint… Paint away….

I let it dry during the night and varnished the next day, and let it dry overnight again… When varnishing, make horizontal strokes and vertical, and repeat…

And done! Have fun making yours and let me know how they turned out. I can’t wait to see yours!
