Creating these Hand Lettered Wood Coasters is SO easy with this tutorial. Includes free hand lettering practice sheet so you can practice or copy these cute words!
A couple weeks ago, I was at Creativation doing Make and Takes for Walnut Hollow. I think these Hand Lettered Wood Coasters are gorgeous, and it’s a super simple craft…but I was FLOORED by how much people liked these! It was a huge hit, because not only are the fun…anyone can do it with my transfer trick! You DO NOT need to know how to hand letter to make these, as you can see below!
What You Need to Make Hand Lettered Wood Coasters
- FREE Printable Practice Sheets (download at the end of this post)
- Wood Coasters
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens
- Clear Wood Spray Sealant
- First, you’ll color the back of your practice sheet with a pencil. You’ll want to shade over the BACK of the whole word you want to copy. Tip: make sure you color it in really well and make it dark.
- Turn your paper over, center the word on your coaster, then trace over the word, like shown. Tip: Don’t trace around the outside of the design. Trace over the words with a single line, then fill in the downstrokes.
- Now you can trace over the word with the fine tip of the Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I like to use Tombows because they don’t bleed as much as a sharpie would. You can try different colors to decorate with vines, flowers and polka dots.
- Next, seal it with a Clear Wood Spray Sealant. Don’t use a rubbing sealant, as that will ruin the lettering.
I also created SVG files similar to these designs and you could also use the painting method. See my tutorial HERE for details! If you are confident in your lettering skills, definitely try free-handing it. I loved seeing everyone’s personal twist on these. Get creative with it!
If you’re not confident with lettering, but would like to be, get my Hand Lettering Worksheets. If you need help visualizing hand lettering, you can try my Video Course (the worksheets are included in the course, so no need to purchase both!)
