Early in our marriage, my husband and I would do out best to take everyone in our family a small little something at each family gathering. My husband has a large family, and over the years, the family has grown even more with the addition of children and grandchildren. But one of my fondest memories is our first Christmas. We gifted everyone these little metal puzzles. A room of almost 50 people was quiet for nine or ten minutes while they tried to figure out the metal puzzles. It was a fun night of laughter and togetherness!
My husband and I still like to give personalized items to our family during the holidays, especially those who come over to our home for a family meal. One way to promote togetherness and make family feel welcome in our home is to create small table favors for them that double as gifts. By adding customized Wood Slice Coasters, a fun straw, and a nostalgic glass bottle of Coca-Cola, everyone leaves with something in hand.
- Wood slice coaster, plain
- Versa-Tool wood burning set
- Pencil or other way to transfer image or words to coaster
- Optional, but recommended- Water sealant for the finished coaster
Please note: The Versa-Tool is aged for adults only! This is not a craft for a child. Use caution when creating this project, just as you would any other household project.
First, decide what you want to place on the coaster. You may choose an image or words!
If you choose something complex, you may want to use the Transfer Point on the Versa-Tool to transfer a laser printed image to the coaster. If you are just using words, then you may write them on the wood slice lightly with a pencil.
Using the calligraphy point, burn the image into the wood.
Optionally, but for best results, use a wood sealant to seal the top of the coaster and the image/words.
Pair the Coca-Cola with the coaster and a festive straw. You can even tie it all together with baker’s twine.
Gift these individually or use them in the table setting at the dinner table. They will be a great conversation starter, and you’ll enjoy seeing the smiles on your families’ faces as they pop the top on their own Coca-Cola bottle.
