DIY Wooden Coasters

This next submission for our DIY wedding favor contest is absolutely superb, but the most marvelous element is how eco-friendly they are. They are also cost next to nothing to make if you live in a woodsy part of the country. Our favorite part? The theme “Take a piece of Colorado with you!” message to guests. Thanks to Angela and Jeffrey for this submission.

Instructions:
Find the wood you would like to use, make sure that it has a large enough diameter to work as a coaster for a mug. Saw 1/4″ thick (it is very easy to be consistent in size with a table saw, but any saw will work). Sand the coasters (we used several different grades of sanding paper). Use tung oil for a natural, but smooth polish. Wrap with twine and label – ours says “Take a piece of Colorado with you”!
