Wood Coasters

Here is step-by-step process of one our favorite Christmas gifts that we made this year (and of course that you can use/make all year round). We picked up these wood slices from a local Christmas tree lot.

Here’s what you need to know in order to make these yourself:

1  || Cut the wood log with a saw or jig saw. Sand the slices for smooth surface.

2  || Pop them in the oven at 200 degrees for 30 minutes to help dry out the moisture.

3  || Spray two coats of Shellac (you can find this at Home Depot or Lowe’s) on both sides of the wood slices. Let them dry.

4  || Paint two coats of chalk board paint on one side of the wood slice. Let it dry.

5  || Use chalkboard markers to write cute things.

6  || Spray one coat of Shellac to seal.

7  || Enjoy!
