I’ve been working really hard to wrap up my playroom to office makeover, so I haven’t had a lot of time to put toward other projects recently. But that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been squeezing in some fun little projects here and there (like my Stained Glass Sharpie Candleholders or Faux Concrete Pumpkins), when I can! Most recently, I made these easy DIY coasters by personalizing them with celebratory greetings in different languages: cheers, salud, prost, and salute, my friends!
These are so fun, are the quickest things to make, and would be really awesome as a holiday gift for anyone on your list (well, maybe not the kiddos). You can personalize them any way you want, too, so let your creativity flow and make these up for everyone you know!

Instructions for Making These DIY Coasters
I started by typing the words I wanted to use into my word processing program. I reversed the text so it was a mirror image and printed it out. (If you want to do this, do a Google search for how to mirror image your text. It’s different in every program so it doesn’t make sense for me to write it out here. :-))
Next, I colored over the printed out word with my white chalk.
I flipped the paper over and pressed it onto the front of one of the slate coasters. Then I carefully wrote over the printed word with my pencil.
When I picked up the paper, the word was visible on the coaster!
Of course it wasn’t perfect, but it was clear enough that I could easily fill it in with my white paint pen. If you don’t have a computer or printer, you could obviously just write the words on your coaster, too!
And that is ALL I did for each of the coasters I made! I will probably go back and seal them with matte Mod Podge prior to actually using them, but that is just to be really safe!
If you like this idea but don’t love the greetings I personalized my coasters with, substitute in a monogram, last name, or design! You could really do anything with these DIY coasters.
It really doesn’t get much easier than this!
