Time to Make
45 minutes + drying time for paint and varnish
How to Make
- Rub the coaster with a medium grade sandpaper to smooth down the surface and around the edge.
- Mix white paint with a small amount of a colour to make a pastel shade. Paint the coaster and leave to dry. Paint the reverse side and add another coat of paint if you need to. Leave to dry.
- Sort the branch chips into different shapes and sizes. Select some chips to make patterns and arrange them onto the coaster then glue in position.
- Paint a simple pattern around the branch chips using a small brush or a cotton bud. Leave to dry then brush over the coaster with varnish. You could also glue a felt circle onto the underside.
Once youve selected some bark chips for making a design, smooth with sandpaper before sticking them onto the coaster.
