This was such a fun and easy craft. Remember making paper snowflakes? I made four different paper snowflakes and used them as stencil to make a pattern onto wood slices.

And the wood slices I bought worked so well for this craft. They were similar in size, smooth and evenly cut to the same thickness! I put a link to the ones I bought in the supplies list below.

What You’ll Need

How to Make Rustic Snowflake Coasters

Start by making paper snowflakes about the size of your coasters.

Next lightly coat your snowflake on one side with repositionable spray adhesive. Make sure to do this outside where it’s well ventilated. Note: If your adhesive goops or looks drippy, use a napkin to remove some of it. I noticed that over spraying made it difficult to peel up the paper snowflake.

Now use a foam applicator to brush Mod Podge over the snowflake just where the wood shows through.

Sprinkle glitter generously over the Mod Podge. Tip: Use a paper plate so you can catch the excess glitter and put it back into your bottle.

Gently pat the glitter layer with paper towel to help the glitter set into the glue.

After a couple of hours your coasters should be dry. With a clean, dry paintbrush, gently brush away any excess glitter but don’t worry if you can’t get it all.

Once dry, use a clean, dry paint brush to brush away excess glitter.

Last spray your coasters with a clear protective spray or another wood sealer to keep the glitter from coming off (outside where it’s well ventilated). I sprayed my coasters three times just to be sure!

Spray two or three times with a protective spray or use another sealer to finish.
