Stenciled coasters – The Crafter´s Workshop

Hi there! Today I´d like to share with you a litte DIY coaster idea I did for The Crafter´s Workshop blog. A friend of mine recently gave me some hand cut wooden pieces and said that I´d probably find a use for those. He knows me well ;-). I have been saving those pieces for a while now. They have a really nice shape – some of them are almost heart shaped, so I just used 6 for now and saved the other ones for later. Here is what I did:

I first gathered some 6×6 inch stencils together and chose patterns I thought would look nice on the coasters. I then just placed a stencil over the wooden surface and traced the pattern onto them with a black Sharpie pen. I just outlined some patterns and some of them I colored black. The outlined ones look „lighter“ than the colored ones. So it is totally up to you which look you prefer and go for.

This is how the finished coasters look like. I really like how the „Dartboard“ pattern and the one with the circles (from the „Geometric Art Layers stencil“) on the left side of the upper photo turned out. Doodling these was quite addictive, so I am considering doing some more and maybe giving them as a Christmas present to someone dear.

In the end I added a light layer of wood varnish over the doodled areas to make sure the patterns „stay put“. Since the Sharpie is permanent and water and fade resistant, it should work without the varnish too, but I just wanted to play it safe.

Happy stenciling!!

  1. Coole Idee! Die schauen wirklich toll aus 🙂 Und der Lack schadet sicher nicht, so kann man sie auch besser abwischen, wenn man mal kleckert!
