Rustic Love Coasters Tutorial

I love the idea of incorporating rustic natural touches in my home.  And when I am able to incorporate them into holiday decor, even better.

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays.  The theme of love and hearts really speaks to me.  Every year, I happily add a new heart creation to my Valentine's Day decorations.

This year, I decided to make some Rustic Love Coasters.


Want to make a few of your own? 

You'll need some wooden coasters, cut from logs.  Need a tutorial...I've got you covered.  Check out my Wood Coaster Tutorial.

You'll also need some chalkboard paint.


Draw a heart, in pencil, on your coaster.  And, yes, if you have a snowman pencil, even better.


Fill in your heart using chalkboard paint.


Allow the paint to fully dry.

Then, write in chalk 'love' or 'amore' or your initials + your love's initials.


 Use it as a coaster, paperweight or simple decoration


Regardless what you do with these rustic love coasters, I hope you LOVE them.


*Don't forget, there is still time to sign up for the Uncommon Goods giveaway where one lucky While Wearing Heels reader will win a $50 gift certificate.

  1. too cute! plus i like the fact you used the chalkboard paint so your message can be changed out whenever you like. these would also be sweet if you drilled a hole in each so you could hang them as a collection with different love notes...the possibilities are endless! x

  10. You and your cute wood crafts! Lucky you have a husband to help inspire you. My husband is a science nerd. I've decided he needs a new hobby so he's getting a metal detector for his birthday. hehe maybe I should get him a pile of wood.
