Happy Friday my friends! We’ve had a busy week in our house and today is no exception! But the weekend is looking relatively calm and I am counting down the hours until it is officially the weekend. These days my life seems to be fueled by coffee and so I decided to make a fun little project to share with everyone. Because everyone needs some Pallet Coasters in their life, yes?

I received this awesome box in the mail with the new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods.  I had actually already tried these k-cups® after seeing the Pumpkin Spice flavor at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and it was delicious! And now I get to try the Caramel, Mocha and Vanilla. There are many reasons I love these k-cups® but mainly because they are made from milk and have no artificial flavors.

And besides the Pumpkin Spice, there is a Peppermint Mocha that I can’t wait to try. These are both seasonal and available for a limited time so grab them while you can!

Lucky for us the process is easy and is done in two quick steps.

  1. Pour the contents of the Step 1 packet into your cup.
  2. Add the K-Cup® to your Keurig and brew your coffee.

Yep, that is all. Stir it up and you are good to go.

But now you all want to know how I made these adorable Pallet Coasters, right? Well, I’ll show you.

18 Popsicle sticks, hot glue and wood stain. I started with cutting off the rounded ends off of all the sticks. Next, I hot glued two Popsicle sticks together to make three sets. Then I glued the edge pieces on to stabilize it and worked my way in from there, leaving just a little space in between the sticks. I did lay them out across to know where they would go before I actually glued them down. And last, I put three sticks on the bottom for extra support. Plus, I needed to make it look authentic.

Then I used some wood stain that I had laying around from when I made the kids growth charts that worked perfectly for this project. Make sure you use a rag you don’t care about because the stain lives up to its name. And one coat of the stain was enough for these pallet coasters.
