I have been wanting to make coasters for a while now. I found this bamboo placemat, and instantly decided to make coasters.
I am sharing an easy tutorial on how to make coasters from a placemat, today!
This is the easiest DIY project ever! These coasters are great for indoor as well as outdoor use.
The quality of material used makes it easy to clean with just a wet wipe.
With the minimum chances of getting damaged and low cost! Who won’t want to create coasters like these.
You will need:
~ Bamboo sheet
~ Plywood sheet
~ Mod podge
~ Sand paper and scissors (or cutter)
Bamboo Coasters tutorial
Start by measuring the length and width of your placemat. A perfect rectangle should yield 8 square coasters.
You will need a plywood sheet of the same size as the placemat.
Once you are done with cutting all the squares from bamboo and plywood sheets.
Sand the sides of the plywood to make the corners smooth. You can also stain the plywood sheet.
Now use a generous amount of mod podge to decoupage the bamboo and plywood sheets together.
You can also use wood glue for this purpose.
Let it dry.
These bamboo coasters also make beautiful handmade gifts.
