Make these fun and easy DIY coasters in two fruity designs for summer!
I love these cute coasters and they’re easy to make. They’re perfect for the patio, by the pool, or while grilling with a cool drink on top! Below are the supplies needed and all the details on how to make them!
- 3.5-inch wood slices
- Thick green felt
- A couple of stick pins
- A fine-point black Sharpie marker
- Yellow, white, dark brown, and orange acrylic paint
- Paint brushes (large and smaller for detailing)
- A hot glue gun
- Pineapple coaster template (free to download and print)
How to Make DIY Fruity Coasters
STEP 1: Paint
To make the pineapple coaster, paint a wood slice with bright yellow acrylic paint. Then use a smaller paintbrush to paint brown zig-zag lines across the coaster. Last, add white highlights here and there to add a little dimension.
For the orange slice coaster, paint your coaster orange and use a smaller paintbrush to paint white lines (crossing at the center like cutting a pizza) and around the edges. Paint a few teardrop shapes for seeds.
STEP 2: add a Protective Topcoat
Let the paint dry then coat your painted wood slices with Polyurethane to protect the paint layer from any water damage!

STEP 3: cut The Felt Pieces
Use the template provided in the supplies list and cut out a leafy top on green thick felt for your pineapple coaster. And, use your wood slice to trace a piece of felt for the bottom of the orange coaster.
Trace and cut away any excess for the pineapple.
STEP 4: Glue The Felt Backing
Once the polyurethane has dried, hot glue each wood slice to its corresponding felt pieces.
