Picture of Game of Thrones Beer Coasters

To celebrate the new season of Game of Thrones coming out on monday the 7th of april(airs the 6th in the US, but I live in Denmark), me and some friends are going to have a Game of Thrones night, with beer, food and of course Game of Thrones, therefor I made these Game of Thrones coasters!

In this instructable I am going to show how I made a GoT beer coaster from scratch with pictures of the sigils of different houses in Westeros. I have uploaded an illustrator file with the different stencils. I have made the following houses, but feel free to make some more using my method,

 

  • Targaryen
  • Stark
  • Lannister
  • Baratheon
  • Tully
  • Greyjoy
  • Tyrrel
  • Arryn

 

And some additional that is not houses:

 

  • The sigil of Peter Baelish
  • The sigil of the Nights Watch
  • The Dothraki

To make the sigil that had to be engraved, I first had to find a sigil of the house on google, the more contrast there is in the picture the better.

After that I opened it in illustrator, and used the trace outline function, which automatically recognised and traced the outlines from the png. file.

From there I made sure that It was only the parts that I wanted engraved that was black.

 

These look awesome!

thanks :D

Are you willing to share the cutting files?

The file should be at the end of the instructable. It is called coaster(1).ai :)

Aw. So cool. It's a bummer I don't have a laser cutter though.

See if there are any makerspaces near you, they have all the equipment you need for making things :)

I don't think that would be possible, as I live in Ireland and there isn't any makerspaces around. but thanks for the help. Again, love the coasters.
