I love how these turned out! They are the perfect mixture of rustic and spring elements! The great thing about these coasters is that they look like they take a lot of time to create, but really they are super easy.

Seriously you guys, I am not a painter AT ALL! However, I was still able to create these adorable coasters. These coasters are perfect for an Easter table setting; that is what I’m using mine for.

Also, they make a great kid craft. My little sisters were even able to make one of these coasters by themselves. Seriously, they are so easy.

One of my favorite parts of making these was choosing all the different colors and designs to paint. I love how different and unique each of the coasters turned out. It’s fun to see how each coaster represents the personalities of the people who made them.

After making these coasters, I think I might actually give painting a try. It was surprisingly therapeutic to paint these detail by detail.

I think this blue, pink, and white coaster is my favorite. What do you think? I think I will claim it for myself :)

  • Now create your design. This can be as basic or as complex as you want it to be. In the coaster below I simply painted lines and filled the blue space with polka dots.

  • Then, you can make a design on the outside of the space if you want. For the coaster below I created polka dots around the outside of the egg.
