Personalise wooden coasters with festive POSCA designs
Create something truly special for the family this Christmas and personalise wooden coasters with festive POSCA designs.
Here we talk you through making a cute snowflake motif on rustic cut-wood discs. Once you’ve mastered the snowflake why not graduate to real personalisation by writing names and initials on the the shapes. This is a fun way to practice your hand-lettering and ornate script. Plus these hand-painted wooden discs make amazing decorations and a fantastic stocking filler. A beautiful script is an impressive thing, and super trendy. Practice on paper with single initials to get to know the shapes of the individual letters and to discover your own script style.
POSCA pens have amazing results on a range of surfaces including paper, card, glass, ceramic, fabric, wood and plastic making these markers ideal for the all-purpose crafting. So once you’ve perfected this festive design and personalised coasters, why not practice your snowflakes and script on other surfaces? You could make a range of snowflake-themed, personalised gifts and party pieces such as snowflake, monogramed plates and glasses.
