Last Fall, I bought these wood slices with the plan to make new coasters. They were used all this time, I just didn’t really know what to do with them. At first I thought of putting some stencils on them, similar to these coasters I made last year. But I did not really have any further inspiration. Then, the other day, finally, I thought of making cute farmhouse striped wood slice coasters by simply adding some stripes with black paint. Fun thing is, that if I don’t want any stripes I can simply turn them around and they’re plain again.

Farmhouse Striped Wood Slice Coasters
What you’ll need:
Prepare & Paint
Make sure you stick on the tape firmly so the paint won’t bleed. Mine did a little bit at some points but you can almost not tell.
Don’t get confused with all the stripes. I re-used the same tape for all of them that’s why you can see so many.
The paint dries really quick and you can just stick it on again over the already painted stripes as well.
Sand & Wax
Using a sanding block, I sanded the coasters a little bit so they wouldn’t look freshly painted. At the end I rubbed some furniture wax on them to seal the paint in.
They can be coffee coasters, put underneath your small plants or candles. I love using little coasters like this in my decor and the possibilities are endless. Like I’ve mentioned before, when you want a simpler look, just turn them around and use the plain side.
