Why buy coasters when they are so easy to make? These wooden coasters look beautiful and they are all natural. You can even paint them in cheerful colours to match the interior design of your room. Christmas tip: thread a string through them and you have an original yule decoration.
  1. Step 1: Saw the tree stump in discs around 2 cm thick.
  2. Step 2: Sand the flat side to remove roughness and irregularities.
  3. Step 3: Wipe the discs with a cloth. Ensure you remove all dust.
  4. Step 4: Now it’s time to paint a fun motif, related to winter or Christmas, say. When the paint dries, you can add a coat of transparent varnish.
  5. Tip

    For advanced DIYers, try staining with a soldering iron or a special pyrography tool. Or go for photo transfers.
  6. TIP: You can easily turn your coasters into Christmas tree decorations. Drill a small hole in the coaster and thread string or ribbon through.
