Keep your furniture safe from water rings with these easy to make DIY Stenciled Wooden Coasters usingFolkArt® Stencils! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Plaid. All Opinions are my own.
Today’s post is one of the easiest DIY’s you will ever do. You only need a few supplies, FolkArt® Multi-Surface Paint and FolkArt® Stencils. As the holiday season is nearing us and we start inviting guests over it’s always a great idea to have coasters to avoid furniture damage. These DIY Stenciled Wooden Coasters are the perfect solution, and barely cost anything!
I’m pretty excited about FolkArt’s new stencils and the designs I’m using today. They reminded me a lot of the cement tile pattern I used in my Laundry Room to paint the floor. Michael’s also has multiple new designs to choose from featuring attractive patterns, these stencil can also be used to decorate tiles, potted plants, pillow covers or coasters.

Stenciled Wooden Coasters Tutorial
Step 1: Cut and Sand Wood
Cut your 1×4 scrap board down to 3 1/2″ to make it a square. 1×4 boards have an actual width of 3 1/2″ (not 4″), and a thickness of 3/4″ (not 1″). I know that can be a little confusing if you aren’t used to it, so just a little reminder! Once you have the coasters cut, sand them down with an orbital sander to remove any splintering wood and create a smooth surface.
Step 2: Paint the Basecoat
Using the FolkArt Basecoat Paintbrush, use the FolkArt Multi-Surface Paint in Vintage white to apply a basecoat to the top of the coaster and all four sides. Allow to fully dry.
Step 3: Stencil
Now that your basecoat has dried, it’s time to add your design to the top by using this new FolkArt Stencil. Tape the stencil in place. Using a stencil brush, dip it into your paint and offload it onto a paper towel. Then, with your brush vertical, swirl the brush around (in place) until the desired coverage has been reached. Be sure you are not overloading your brush, it should feel pretty dry to the touch. It will amaze you at how much paint actually comes off, and this helps prevent leaking under the stencil!
Let everything full dry and cure before using. You definitely want to make sure the paint is completely dry for this project since it will be used for cups filled with liquid! ; )
