Today I’m part of a massive blog hop with Kristen Duke in her Birthday Celebration Week along with over 100 talented bloggers sharing gift ideas for under $5!

I recently made this cool little crate table with a removeable tray top. The wood was so pretty, I didn’t want it ruined.

So I whipped up some reclaimed wood coasters in just a few minutes. 

They are so easy to make, and will only cost you a little bit of time. A totally unique and very affordable gift for sure!

What you’ll need:

saw
cordless drill (to predrill and screw)
yardstick
cedar strips
short screws

1. Cut your wood strips to a desired size.

2. Flank both ends with a strip of yardstick, cut to size.

3. Mark where your screws will need to go, then predrill pilot holes so the wood doesn’t split.

4. Start in the middle on each side of the coaster to place your first screw and washer. Then add the rest.

Easy! And cute!

For the printable, I just drew up the words on a white background, cut to size, and stuck it on one of my business cards.

  1. Those are the most wonderful coasters! I love their laid back style! What a great idea for a blog hop and I will certainly be visiting a lot of new blogs today.

    Gigi @ Old World Patina

  2. Cute! I like the washers…and the cool industrial vibe.
    I think they’d make a great gift for dad @ the office, or that bachelor that has everything– Or even a young man’s first apartment.

  3. I love the coasters. I might copy them. And all the other ideas too. That table is so cute. And so many other great gift ideas to check out…. might take me all year.

  4. What a cute idea! Love that it is so easy to make. I love the crate coffee table with the tray! I’ll have to get my hubby right on that! He does the woodworking, I do the sewing! We compliment each other that way! lol

  5. Love these! Going to look for yardsticks this weekend at an all-town garage sale near here this weekend. You’re so creative!

  6. Thanks for sharing this cute idea! I needed something to get my Papa for his birthday & it’s hard to buy something for the man who has everything! He really appreciates handmade/homemade gifts, so this is perfect! Thanks again :)

  7. Love the rustic feel of these coasters. :) I’ve been trying to find unique coasters to give as a wedding gift for my best buddy. Love this #birthdaygiftidea hop!
