Make these fun and easy DIY coasters in two fruity designs for summer!
I love these cute coasters and they’re easy to make. Just pick up a bag of wood slices to make a set for yourself and a few to give as gifts!
These fun coasters have a little bit of a rustic feel with a pop of color. They’re perfect for the patio, by the pool, or while grilling with a cool drink on top!
Below I’ll step you through how to make them. They are also featured on my blog post page –> 10 Sweet Pineapple Crafts You Have To Try! So check out how to make them and then click the link above to see all of the other pineapple crafts.
- 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
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.
Let the paint dry then coat your painted wood slices with Polyurethane to protect the paint layer from any water damage!

Use the template provided in the supplies list and cut out a leafy top on green thick felt for your pineapple coaster. Use a fine-point black sharpie to trace around the bottom of the pineapple wood slice since all wood slices are different sizes and cut away any excess.
For the orange slice coaster cut a piece of felt using your wood slice as a template. Trace around the wood slice with a fine-point black Sharpie marker to get the right shape and size.
Once the polyurethane has dried, hot glue each wood slice to its corresponding felt pieces.
