Learn to dye and stencil wooden coasters with this video tutorial. Discover every step to make these Boho Chic Coasters including how to stencil.

Hi Kenarry readers! It’s Jennifer and Kitty (the O’Neil Sisters, from RunningWithSisters.com) here to share a gorgeous DIY home accent, How to Dye and Stencil Wooden Coasters. The idea came to us when we were shopping and found a set of unfinished wood coasters with really cool wood grain patterns.

We thought vibrant dyes could really highlight the wood grain, and make for a pretty set of coasters! Then we decided to stencil the coasters with Boho designs in white to create a trendy-chic look. We love how they turned out, and we can’t wait for you to make a set, too!

The project itself is pretty easy (the saturated dyes and pretty stencils do all the work). We’ve included a video showing what you’ll need, how to dye the wood, and how to stencil the patterns. Watch along with us as we dye and stencil one of the coasters, and you’ll see just how fast and easy this project it is. Then follow the written steps below to dye and stencil wooden coasters yourself! It’s fun!

Materials To Make The Coasters

Instructions

Painting a square wooden coaster orange

1. Paint the coaster

Cover your work surface and put on your gloves. Pour a small puddle of Ultra Dye onto the disposable plate (you really don’t need much dye). Use the sponge paintbrush to paint the dye onto the coaster. Be sure to get the edges and the back.

Wiping the orange painted coaster down.

2. Wipe it off.

Next, wipe the excess dye off the coaster with a paper towel. Wipe both sides and the edges. (You’ll be happy you’re wearing your gloves!) Let the coaster dry completely.

3. Coat it with a clear sealant spray

Coat the coaster with a layer of clear sealant spray paint. Make sure to do the front, back, and sides. Let dry.

4. Paint the stencil on the coaster

Load the sponge paintbrush or sponge pouncer with a little white acrylic paint. We like to pour a little paint onto a disposable plate and dab the paintbrush into the paint. Then dab onto newspaper or scrap paper so the paintbrush isn’t too gloompy with paint.

Next dab the sponge paintbrush straight up and down on the stencil, holding the edges of the stencil in place with your other hand. Make sure to paint all the edges and the center of the stencil opening. Let the stenciled coaster dry. (We use a hair dryer to speed this part up!)

5. Seal the coaster again

Coat the coaster with a layer of clear sealant spray paint to waterproof it. Let dry.

6. Attach felt feet

If you’d like, add felt feet to the back of the coaster to protect your table.

We love how these coasters look with the four different colors and stenciled designs. Each coaster looks different, but they still look like a set. You could, however, dye and stencil wooden coasters with all the same color and same stencil on each, or you could just apply vinyl designs to them. Whatever you decide, let us know how yours turn out. Just leave us a comment. We’d love to hear from you!

Don’t you just love creating your own home decor?

Happy Crafting,
Jennifer & Kitty
