Step 1: Intro:
Hello there! This is my first instructable, and it is dedicated to my dad, who wanted these coasters.
Step 2: What You Will Need
Here's what you will need:
Glue (Elmer's, tacky, or hot glue will work)
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
Repeat step six until your coaster is done!
Let it dry, and then paint it some awesome colors!
Thanks for reading!
