Here's what you will need:
Popsicle sticks

Glue (Elmer's, tacky, or hot glue will work)
And PATIENCE.

Step 3: Okay, Let's Start!

So first you will need to lay down 6 Popsicle sticks about 2-4 centimeters apart.

Step 4: The Support ;)

In order for these wonderful structures to work, you will need a counterweight to sustain the cups weight.
(Just get 3 more Popsicle sticks, were making science)
Take your spreader (q-tip) and spread glue on the thin side of the three Popsicle sticks

Step 5: Place the Supports

Place the supports on the first, middle, and last sections.
If your coaster is wobbly so far, don't worry.. It's the top layer that does wonders.

Step 6: Finishing Layer!!

You're almost done!
Get six more Popsicle sticks and put glue drops on the 3 sticks in the three parts where the sticks will touch.

Step 7: Repeat Step 6
