I just ran across this great little DIY for wood coasters that can also be used for wall decor. It is a simple and stylish way to add a little something unique to your table. Follow me to find out more.

Then you trace your graphic through carbon paper onto your wood. Your last step is to outline and paint your image. If you will use them for coasters you might want to put a layer of polyurethane or acrylic spray on them to keep them looking bright, new and lovely.
