Step 1: What You Need

  • 17 popsicle sticks (this might vary depending on how big you want your coaster to be/ the size of your popsicle sticks. I used a few small popsicle sticks for the base because I ran out of big ones, but honestly it doesn’t really matter)
  • Paints in the colours of your choice (my popsicle sticks were already dyed, so I just used a bit of gold paint to add some decoration)
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue gun

Step 2:

Paint your popsicle sticks and leave them to dry.

Step 3:

Next take 10 popsicle sticks and glue them together in pairs (see photo). These will act as the base of the coaster and give it some height.

Step 4:

Glue the remaining 7 popsicle sticks on top of one of the popsicle stick pairs that you glued together before.

Step 5:

Glue the rest of the popsicle stick pairs onto the base of the coaster. Leave to dry and you’re done!

    Hey, Artsy! Very cool Coaster. I never have enough of them when preparing food, or removing something hot from the microwave. I do, however, have an unending supply of popsicle sticks...lol ! Time for me to get busy! Thanks!
