Star Wars Coaster Set

Star Wars Coaster Set

Posted by DecoArt on Nov 25th 2015

Hello DecoArt readers! Do you have any Star Wars fans in your home? Or perhaps a friend who would love a handmade Star Wars gift this holiday season. I couldn’t be more excited to share with you this easy tutorial on how to make customized Star Wars coasters. My boys are big Star Wars fans so we’ll be keeping this DIY craft in our home but this would make a great gift idea. You can create any color combination you like or stick to their original design colors. I was tempted to create an all black and white coaster set, but changed my mind at the last minute. I’m glad I did because the blue, orange and red really stand out against the black and white coasters.  

Items Needed:

Instructions:

Add 1-2 coats of paint to your coasters, allowing the first coat to dry completely before the second.

Create a stencil using a cutting machine like Silhouette or Cricut. If you don’t have a cutting machine you can always print the design and use an x-acto knife to cut out the stencil. Once you have adjusted the size (mine were around 3 inches) to fit your coasters you can cut them out.

Apply 1-2 coats of paint over your stencil. It’s best to remove the stencil as soon as possible, while the paint is still semi wet. If you let it dry completely it may remove part of the paint when you take the stencil off. Allow paint to dry for a few hours.

Use Triple Thick Gloss Glaze spray sealant to protect against water damage, allow to dry completely before using.

Mine bled a little, which isn’t a big issue since we’re keeping these but if I had planned to gift them I’d probably try a different surface other than the wood coasters. You can find ceramic coasters, which will make a great smooth surface to apply paint on.
