Hi friends! We're sharing our first holiday DIY project for the 2014 season today! I'm gonna get confusing right away and go out of order from the list I made last week. I'm bumping the paper feather wreath, (which you're going to loooooove), to next week, and moving the geo painted coasters to today!
We've had these wooden coasters since we got married and have used them all over our home. Since we've got a dozen of these, I thought it might be fun to scoop up four for a festive holiday upgrade. This project would make an awesome, and super inexpensive DIY gift, or the perfect little touch for your own home!
Disclaimer: My inspiration for the design on these coasters were the pointy mountains from the holiday movie, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Remember the first scene that we see the Abominable Snowman? That's what I was going for.
I started by making an open bottom triangle of two thin strips of blue tape. I placed the tape where I wanted my first little mountain, painted it in, then moved the tape over at varying heights to continue painting the mountain range.
I tried one with three different colors and didn't love it quite as much, but that gives you another way of trying this simple project.
So there you have it! A super simple DIY idea that you could easily tie up and gift this season....or place around your own home!
Rather BUY than DIY?
These trendy coasters by theCoastal on Etsy are sure to make a fun statement!
