I thought summer would never get here. But finally, it is here. Since it is summer, we usually spend more time outdoors. So much fun to be had outdoors in the summer! This includes eating and drinking outdoors. Along with drinking comes the need for summer drink coasters. These coasters help protect that gorgeous outdoor patio future from all sorts of drink mishaps.
But I realized I was lacking in summer coasters here. However, I didn’t want to spend a lot or take forever to craft summer drink coasters. Nothing is worse than spending a lot of money or time to make something.
So how did I make my summer drink coasters cheaply and quickly?
Therefore, I used Washi Tape to create pretty, inexpensive and fast summer coasters here.
All who follow my blog know that I just love Washi Tape for all sorts of crafting. Like when I made bookmarks or frames suing Washi Tape.
Plus, I also found some cheap wood squares at my local craft store for the summer drink coaster bases. Again, the cost here is nominal for all the supplies for this craft. So a win-win as far as this summer decor craft!

DIY Summer Drink Coasters
- First, start with plain untreated wood squares.
- Second, cover wood squares with summer themed Washi Tape.
- Next use your scissors to cut Washi Tape to fit the wood squares as you are covering it.
- Now, once squares are all covered take your coasters outside to enjoy a summer drink.
- Happy Summer Drinking now!
There you have it. A fun, easy, inexpensive and decorative way to make a set of four summer coasters.

I saw some bicentennial Washi tape the other day and was thinking about what I could do with it. Now I know! These coaster would be perfect for summer. Thanks for sharing.
Aw, happy to share and would love to see the patriotic look if you make them, too 😉
I have yet to do any crafts with Washi Tape, I’ve never even purchased any which is a little strange since there are so many cool things you can do with this colorful adhesive. Your coasters are adorable Janine 🙂
Aw, thanks Mary and I know how much you love to craft, so I hope you can try some washin tape crafts soon, too 😉
Gorgeous! My favorite summer drink is an iced latte.
My kids had me buy Washi Tape and now I can’t get enough of it. It does EVERYTHING!
Aw, thanks Tamara and couldn’t agree more about Washi Tape 😉

I had one of those moments in Michael’s where I bought some washi tape because it was pretty and on sale, not having any earthly idea what to use it for. This is a great idea for starters!
Looks like great minds think alike with purchasing wash tape. Oh and seriously this craft is so easy to use wash tape with that I do hope you can try this one out now 🙂
You know I love washi tape. This is such a cute idea…and easily changed up for the next season! Thanks so much for sharing at the #happynowlinkup!
