This is not a usual treat of ice cream sticks. Why? Because I made those ice cream sticks into a wooden plate. From there, I have some great ideas for functional decorations to make. I love functional decorations instead of just plain decoration. More meaning! More functional items in our home is better, something pretty yet useful. So, first thing first. On this occasion, I will show you how to make diy painted coaster from ice cream sticks.
What do you need to make a painted coaster out of ice cream sticks?
- Ice cream sticks
- Glue (for wood)
- Spray paint – white color
- Acrylic paint – red, white, black color
- Paint brush
- Organic rope
- UHU glue
How to diy a painted coaster from ice cream sticks?
- Apply glue (for wood) evenly along the ice cream stick surface. Glue the ice cream sticks to each other one by one. Watch for the same length and width.
- Line them all up until it is square in dimension.
- Let it sit for a while until the glue dry and become a firm wooden panel.
- Spray or apply paint to all the surfaces of the ice cream sticks panel with white color. Let it dry.
- Take organic rope and arrange it gently but firmly around the coaster surface by creating an inner frame. Glue it with UHU. Let it dry.
- Paint the inner coaster with white acrylic paint to have more contrast. Let it dry.
- Paint the wording and the mug with black paint. Let it dry.
- Color the mug with red gradations and the help of white acrylic paint to get a 3D look on the mug. Let it dry.
- Fill out some blank space on above and below corners with 3 red dots each. let it dry.
- Your diy painted coaster from ice cream sticks is ready.
You can be creative with the painting for the ice cream sticks coaster, the object, the colors or the wording. I chose the red color for great contrast. You can choose any theme according to your home color theme or party theme or simply your favorite color / object.
The ice sticks became a solid wood and made into a strong and thick drink coaster. It can also used for bowl of hot soup coaster. It’s easy, cheap and fun to do. So, happy trying!
