Wood Slice Canadiana Coasters

I have teamed with more than 30 AMAZING bloggers to tackle the
challenge of creating a patriotic project or recipe without using the
traditional red, white and blue color scheme!  How fun is that?!

Starting last week and running through July 4th, more than 30 projects will
be shared on some of the most awesome blogs around.  I can’t wait to see all of
the inspirational projects and hope you will find some inspiration as well.

I must admit, it was a bit of a challenge to come up with a
patriotic project without using the color red to represent Canada.
But I remembered having seen these gorgeous faux wood coasters at the
Chapters Indigo home‘s website and thought I’d make my own version.

This was a great project to do, not only because it’s cute and inexpensive, but
my entire family helped me with it – from cutting, to sanding, to drawing, to staging.

Just slice the wood, draw or transfer the desired design, burn it with
the pen and to finish it off, seal it with lacquer or stain them if you wish.

Oh Canada!

Now, before you head out, be sure to check out the AMAZING projects
that were shared last week AND be sure to enter for your chance to win a
$310 Target Gift Card by using the Rafflecopter at the end of the post!

    Too cute! I have some coasters that I “made” from remnants at a local wood shop. I say “made” because I didn’t really do anything to them other than put them under my glass. :)

    These are beautiful! You inspired me to do a Canadian project with no red or white this week :) I linked back to your project too- because everyone needs to see it!

    Wow your photography & staging are simply stunning. Such a lovely craft, you’ve totally got my wheels spinning now!!

    Also, I’m so glad we had a Canadian in the group! I’m a ‘wanna be’ Canadian from one of the neighboring states below (Wisconsin).

    Off to go pin!!
