DIY Striped Monogram Coasters
These DIY monogram coasters with stripes are so fun and easy to make. Personalize them with your favorite colors or give them as a gift!
These colorful coasters take minutes to make, and with their bright colors, they're perfect spring and summer home accessory!
Start by choosing the colors you'd like to use. You'll need at least three: two for the stripes and one for the monogram.
Using the foam brush, paint the coasters with the lighter of the stripe colors first ... I used white.
Let the paint dry, then mark off the stripes with painter's tape. Then, add the second paint color in between the tape.
Remove the painter's tape, then let the coasters dry before proceeding.
Use a word processing or design program to create the monogram you'd like to use ... simpler is better. (Visit my blog for extra tips.) Print and cut out the letter, then place it on the coaster and lightly trace around the letter with a pencil.
You could also draw the monograms on freehand.
Use an angled paint brush to fill in the monogram with the last paint color. I used my favorite gold paint. Use multiple coats, if necessary.
Once everything is dry, your coasters are ready to use. I was surprised how well the paint holds up well to condensation.
