DIY wood coasters

wood coasters diy

A large tree branch fell down in one of Florida’s crazy storms we had a few months back. Rather than chuck the branch in the dumpster, we decided to make authentic Florida wood coasters out of it. With as much coffee as we drink, you can never have too many coasters. It was such a simple project and has been extremely handy to have in our living room.

Ryan, my hubby, used his saw to cut the tree branch into tiny pieces for me. Then I used a dry cloth and brushed off the saw dust (being careful not to remove the beautiful bark). Next I stuck felt pads on the bottom and called it good. It was very simple and I love the results.

    Love these. My husband cut a fallen koa (Hawaii’s oak tree) tree branch into little discs last year, and I use them under my candle votives. Used as coasters is brilliant.

      The candle base idea is brilliant! Now I have another use! Thanks for sharing.
