Boho Style Fabric Covered Wooden Coasters

How to give your plain wooden coasters an easy makeover and turn them into boho style fabric covered wooden coasters!

Hi there! Long time no see! I hope you’re doing great and are still enjoying summer. Or are you ready for Fall? I am definitely still enjoying summer, school is not until September, so I am making the best of it! I did get a lot of little projects done, but just haven’t had the chance to share them here yet. Today I thought I’d pop back in to show you these cute boho style fabric covered wooden coasters. Hope you like them!

I bought these cute plain wooden coasters at our local Flying Tiger Store for around €4. I was planning on just leaving them as is, but they kept on getting so many water stains and just didn’t look nice anymore.

So then I saw Sadie Seasongoods gorgeous wooden flannel coasters HERE and got inspired! If you don’t know her, go check out the blog and you’ll find tons of inspiration!

How To Make Boho Style Fabric Covered Wooden Coasters

What I have used:

round wooden coasters 

white school glue or mod podge

paint brush

pencil

boho style IKAT fabric (mine was actually an Ikea tea towel (no longer available though)  that I have used for other projects as well and I had just enough left for these coasters)

glass or anything round that is a bit smaller than your coasters

pencil for tracing

scissors

Instructions:

This is so simple! Depending on the size of your coasters, look for something that is a little bit smaller, like a glass in my case. Then, using the glass & a pencil, trace your circles on your fabric and cut them with your scissors.

Next, fringe the ends of the cut circles just a little bit, to make them look a little worn. If you don’t like that look, just leave them as they are.

Now apply a lot of glue or mod podge to your fabric circles. I used glue, so I watered it down with just a little bit of water and soaked them really well and placed them in the middle of each coaster. I put another coat of glue on top and then let dry. Once it’s dry I put another coat of glue, not watered down, on top and I think, this is why the fabric looks a bit weathered and distressed.

Let dry again and you’re ready to use your coasters!

    So lovely Katrin. I must say that gorgeous towel has been great for making over so many things. Such a pity it’s no longer available but you’ve inspired me to keep an eye out for unusual kitchen towels. I never thought they could be so useful in making something special for your home

    So pretty! Love the kitchen towel use too. I made lumbar pillows from Ikea towels for my kitchen chairs. Now you have inspired me to make matching coasters to go with. ☺ Fablous instructions. Would also make a nice hostess gift. Thanks for sharing! 💞
