How to Make Farmhouse Style Coasters With Dollar Tree Mini Pallets

12 May

Learn how to make farmhouse style coasters.  These Dollar Tree mini pallet craft ideas  will help you get the farmhouse look in your home for less money.  


We splurged on a farmhouse table a few years ago. There are five of us, so we figured with spouses there be 8 of us at the table.  So we got a 10 seater.  


It fits in our long dining room and looks amazing.  I really do love it.  Since I work from home and the kids homeschool, it's used as a desk all day long.





This table was an investment.  I'm hoping to have this for the rest of my life.  I am very strict about not having any drinks on the table without a coaster.


I had some coasters, but I wanted to make some pretty farmhouse coasters DIY since I like to have my table decorated in a farmhouse theme.


I saw these mini pallets at Dollar Tree and knew they would be adorable Dollar Tree coasters.  I just love how they turned out!  These farmhouse style coasters match my farmhouse table well.

Dollar Tree has really upped their craft game lately, so that's where I went for supplies for my farmhouse coasters DIY.  Even my little store is getting some great stuff in.  I ended ordering a whole case for Dollar Tree mini pallet craft ideas.


These mini wood pallets that I used for Dollar Tree coasters can be hard to find.  I ordered a case from Dollar Tree and had it shipped to the store.  You can also get them shipped to your home.


I'm sure I'll use some or I'll list them on Marketplace to get rid of them.  Or maybe I'll just make more farmhouse style coasters to give as gifts.

How Do You Make Homemade Coasters?


I've used cork, thin pieces of board, and now mini pallets to make farmhouse coasters DIY.  I also made these rustic farmhouse coasters with mason jar rings.


You can find all kinds of coaster blanks on Etsy.  


How Do You Waterproof Homemade Coasters?


I like to use Mod Podge Hard coat in the purple jar.  It is a thinner formula that dries hard.  Use 2-3 coats because it is thin.


Regular Mod Podge can get sticky when when or in humidity.  Hard Coat dries hard and won't stick to your cups.





Does the Dollar Tree Sell Coasters?


Yes, they do sell Dollar Tree coasters.  However, I wanted to make DIY Dollar Tree farmhouse coasters using the mini wood pallets. 


What Material Makes the Best Coasters?


You can use wood, ceramic, or tile to make farmhouse coasters DIY.  For wood, use a sealer to protect the wood from water.  


There are several supplies at the store to make Dollar Tree coasters.  You can make farmhouse style coasters out of other Dollar Tree supplies.


How Do You make Homemade Wooden Coasters?


Once you have your wooden coaster blanks, you can add a design with scrapbook paper, stickers, rub ons, or paint.  Just seal your Dollar Tree coasters with Mod Podge Hard Coat.


There are a lot of cute ideas for DIY Dollar Tree farmhouse decor.  Browse blogs and YouTube to get inspiration.




Dollar Tree Coasters Supplies


To make these Dollar Tree pallet coasters, you will need mini pallets.  These are so cute and have so many uses!  You can also find mini wood pallets on Amazon, but you'll have to make sure they fit inside the crate that you use.


I also used a Dollar Tree wood crate to hold my Dollar Tree coasters.  This fits four DIY Dollar Tree farmhouse coasters perfectly.  You can also buy craft crates on Amazon.


To decorate them, I picked up this adorable sheet of rub on transfers.  If you buy it online, you have to buy an entire box of assorted designs.  You can also find a single sheet of this rub on transfer on Amazon.


Other Farmhouse Style Coasters Supplies


I also used white acrylic paint to make my Dollar Tree coasters.  I wanted mine distressed, so I used Tim Holtz distress ink.  I love that stuff, but it takes a full day to dry.  


I sealed these DIY Dollar Tree farmhouse coasters with Mod Podge Hard Coat.  Use 2 to 3 coats for a nice finish.  Definitely let the ink dry for a full day before sealing though!


You can add thin cork or felt to the back of the coaster.  They don't fit into the wooden crate as well though.

Farmhouse Style Coasters Directions


Step #1


Paint the mini pallets and wood crate with two coats of white paint.  Then use the distress ink to ink the edges.  I used a cotton swab to get between the slats.





Step #2


Add the rub ons where you want them.  I put them on the top so I can see them when the coasters are in the crate.  I let the ink dry for 24 hours before moving to the next step.





Step #3


Seal the coasters with two coats of Mod Podge Hard Coat.  Let dry completely.  


Aren't these DIY Dollar Tree farmhouse coasters just the cutest?  They would make a great gift idea, too!
