Easy Mini Pallet Coasters

4 Materials
20 Minutes

If you are looking for a way to get style your home with some easy home decor and to rid of the unsightly rings that form on your tables from careless drinkers. Fret no more, these easy mini pallet coasters are here.

These pallet coasters are adorable, cheap and easy to make! All you need is 3 supplies, which will cost you about $3 at the dollar tree!

Gather all of your supplies. You will want to go ahead and plug in your glue gun and allow it to heat up a few seconds. Count out your craft sticks and measure 4" on each stick.

Using your scissors, cut the craft sticks on each of the lines. Continue until you have cut all 11 craft sticks. Discard the remnants.

Layout 4 sticks in a row, vertically, spaced about ½” apart. This is the bottom of your pallet. Using your glue gun, place a generous drop of glue at the top of each of the four craft sticks, about 1/8” down from the top. 

Attach a craft stick along the row of glue dots, perpendicular to the row below. This will be one of three middle support “beams” for the pallet.

Now you are now going to build the top layer of the pallet. Using your glue gun, place a generous drop of glue on each of the three-middle support “beams” and attach a craft stick, lining it up to be parallel with the craft stick directly below it. Repeat this for the next three in the row. 

Attach the 4 to the top and add your lettering, and thats it.

    Great idea! Is the glue gun really that stable? Perhaps wood glue or even carefully applying super glue?

      You could actually use both, the hot glue for immediate hold while the wood glue has a chance to cure.
