popsicle stick. A small, rather thick wooden pallet. Pliers. Knife. Glue gun. Washi tape with various colors and patterns according to taste. Scissor. Pencil. Ruler. PVA glue.
How to make:
Mark each end of the popsicle stick using a pencil and a ruler that has been prepared with the same length between one stick and another.
Cut a small wooden pallet rather thick as you wish. You can estimate the length of the wooden pallet to fit 6-8 popsicle sticks. So that the size and the end result is neither too big nor too small.
After each tip of the popsicle stick has been cut, you can start to attach the washi tape to one side of each popsicle stick.
Stick each popsicle stick that has been affixed with washi tape on three small wooden palette blocks that have been prepared. Glue by using a glue gun or other adhesive glue that you have at home.
So that the sticks of popsicle sticks look neat, you can start sticking popsicle sticks from each end of the block and the middle of the block, or you can also mark it with a pencil to make sure the distance between one stick with the other sticks is the same.
Stick all the sticks to finish and form a beautiful coaster for the mug.
As a finishing, so that your homemade mug coaster is more durable, strong and durable, you can apply PVA glue to the top of the coaster.
To apply PVA glue to make it easier and neater, you can use a brush or sponge that has been cut into small pieces.
Do not rush to use it even though the coaster looks cute and adorable. Then you may wait until it is completely dry.
