- 4″ round cork disks
- Colored pencils
- Hot glue gun
- Foam brush
- Craft saw or compound miter saw
- Sand paper
Step 1: We are starting with cutting the colored pencils by using craft saw. It takes time so you need to be patient because the result is going to be great! Just keep cutting.
Step 2: The cuts may not be perfect so it’s okay. Just make sure that the out side edges are non-chipped pieces but the inside pieces are not that important.
Here are the small pieces of colored pencils. The look of cut colored pencils is going to be like a rainbow so your children will love it!
Step 3: When you finished cutting the colored pencils into small pieces, you can start sticking them one by one onto the cork disk with help of your hot glue gun. Make sure that they are all steady.
Step 4: After sticking all pieces to the DIY coaster, give the top of the coaster a light sanding to smooth out the rough edges so it’s going to be smooth. You can finish off with a coat to protect it from water and etc. or either you can use varnish too. If you prefer varnish then keep in mind that you need to wait until it dries.
Here your colored pencil DIY coasters are ready to use! You can make them to use in your kitchen or anywhere you would like to else you can make it as a gift. I am pretty sure that children will love it!
Hope that you liked and enjoyed! See you on next DIY project.
