1. Mini pallet coaster

Things You Need

  • 12 Ice cream Sticks
  • Ruler
  • Pens black and silver
  • Glue,
  • scissors

Procedure:

  • Take the ice cream sticks and mark off the round edges, to make sure they are of the same length use a ruler. Once the edges are marked off, you can cut the ends.
  • The next step is optional depending on what colour you would like your pallet coaster to be so you can use multiple colours or, to give it a wooden look you can use a bowl of coffee or tea freshly poured into a bowl and soak the sticks in it. Use a fork to hold them into place so that they do not float above the liquid.
  • Leave them in there for about five minutes and then let them out to dry completely.
    So next, we have to take a hot glue gun and start laying out two opposite side sticks flat and the other two standing on sides and glued to form a complete square.
  • Now take another stick on its side and stick it in the middle of the square. To add the top of the coaster we take seven sticks across.
  • To make sure they are evenly spaced place the sticks at the ends first, leaving gaps to resemble palettes.
    With a silver sketch pen, make two dots on the edges of the each stick at the top to make it look more like a real palette. The coaster in now done.

2. Button Coaster

Things you need

  • Buttons
  • Tape ( less sticky )
  • Scrap paper
  • Glue gun

Procedure:

  • First overlap rows of tape with the sticky side up and ends folded to stick to paper surface. Form the area into a square of about 13 x 13 cm from tape.
  • Start from the middle and lay the buttons face down onto the tape. Place them in a pattern you like leaving very small gaps in between.
  • Once arranged take your glue gun and start filling in the gaps. Glue each button and try to even out the surface with layers of glue.
  • If you have buttons that vary in thickness, try to make the overall area the same level.
  • After the glue is dry, peel the coaster off from the tape, and now you have a button coaster.

  • Take one end of the rope and put some glue on it to seal the end and coil it in itself to from the middle of the coaster.
  • Glue this centre to the middle of the fabric. Place small dots of glue to paste the rope around it on the fabric and repeat this process, until we get to the end of the fabric.

  • Design printout
  • Piece of glass
