Easy and Adorable DIY Lemon Slice Coasters

Easy DIY lemon slice coasters.

Happy National Lemonade Day!  Do you prefer your’s pink, plain or spiked?  Any which way you drink it, a tall glass will always taste that much sweeter on a DIY Lemon Coaster.  Trust me, I know from experience.  This post is sponsored and originally appeared on I Love to Create.

Cotton laundry line is one of my favorite craft supplies.  I’ve used it to convert Easter Eggs into Planters, make Boho Baskets and I have even dyed it ombre.  This time around I coiled the rope into coaster sized circles slightly larger than the cup I was going to use as a guide for the next step.  You can use craft glue or hot glue and glue as you coil.

Using sticky foam as a stencil.

Trace a cup onto the sticky back foam.  Use a pen to section the circle off into a pie.  From there make triangles inside the pie.

How to apply a lemon slice stencil.

Using scissors or a craft knife cut out the triangles and apply the stickers to the coasters.  The stickers will act as a resist or stencil for your lemon slice coasters.

Spray the rope coasters with paint.  Allow to dry completely.  When working with spray paint, fabric or regular, several layers drying in-between are always better.

When the paint is dry remove and discard the foam.  This sticker resist technique is really easy and fun.  I’ve used foam stickers as a resist on Ocean Themed Bedspreads, Geometric Planters and T-Shirts.

Easy breezy, not to mention cute as all get out.  Maybe next I’ll make a lime, orange or pink grapefruit version!  Not that into coasters?  Perhaps a Citrus Slice Tote Bag or a Lemon Slice Sunglasses Case.
