How to Make Pallet Easter Drink Coasters

Today I'm making easy DIY drink coasters with egg designs for the Easter holiday. 
Pallet Easter Drink Coasters


I began these coasters like the stenciled coasters I made a while back, with small pieces of wood. The wood originally came from a children's building set. I set 4 pieces down and 2 across the back then used a nail gun to attach them together.

I made 4 of them.

The next step was to stencil the small pallets I created. I used an Easter stencil from a pack of cardboard stencils I bought on Amazon. The eggs were the perfect size for these coasters. I chose 4 Spring colors and stenciled the eggs to the pallet coasters.

When the pastel colors dried I stenciled crate designs using black craft paint and the shipping crate stencil from Old Sign Stencils.

When the black paint was dry I made a mixture of water and a gel stain in a spray bottle. I sprayed the coasters to give them a slightly darker look.

That was all I needed to do to create these adorable Easter pallet drink coasters.
