DIY Heart Coasters- Valentine’s Day & Wedding Favors!

Another accurate title for this blog post would be the time I frantically yelled at my husband to hurry and grab the chainsaw before bulk trash pickup (which was on its’ way) took our tree from the curb… (I have an idea, honey! Oh, how many times he hears that…)

I love the rustic look of the coasters and the sweet sentiment- perfect for Valentine’s day or your wedding day!

How To Make Wooden Heart Coasters


Wood log (the bottom of my Christmas tree, smells sooo good)
Miter saw
Sand paper
Polyurethane Clear Gloss
Heart stencil (or your awesome freehand ability, of which I have none)
Paint- two colors, one for heart, one for initials


Cut wood log into approximately 2 inch slices using a miter saw. (The log you see below broke when my husband tried another saw, so stick with the miter ūüėČ 

Sand each coaster a bit to remove rough sides (do not sand side).  Apply one layer of clear gloss polyurethane.

Once dry, grab your stencil heart and paint.

Let dry and write you and your love’s initials.

Let dry and apply another layer of gloss polyurethane to seal.

These are perfect little coasters for a Valentine’s Day gift but I also think they make a great DIY wedding favor or wedding decor.

If you think your wedding guests might not want your initials, just leave blank and every guest can have some heart coasters!

I would love these wooden coasters for a rustic, romantic wedding!
