I have been wanting to do this simple project for such a long time now! My poor old coasters have served one to many drinks and were looking a little worse for wear! But time just hasn’t been on my side. Like all projects that I make for our home, I try to use what I already have rather than spend money and buy more. So instead of throwing them out I decided to give them a new lease on life. Join me in making your very own DIY Farmhouse Music Sheet Coasters.
DIY Farmhouse Music Sheet Coasters
- A set of coasters. If you don’t have any you can find them at your local thrift store or cut some out using some scrap wood
- Music Sheets. Find these at your local thrift store or there are plenty of printable downloads on Pinterest.
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Silhouette Cameo – Don’t have a Silhouette Cameo? You can find the labels here
- Black Vinyl
Step 1 – As you can see the edges of my coasters were starting to lift. Remove any lifted edges by sanding because you want a nice smooth edge to attach the music sheets too.
Step 2 – Using a pencil trace around the edges of your coasters onto the side of the music sheet that you DO NOT want to see. This prevents any lines to be seen on the good side of your music sheet. Cut out around the trace line.
Step 3 – Apply the mod podge to the coaster using your paint brush. You want a fair amount but not to much. Then attach the music sheet to your coaster. Using an old store card burnish the music sheet to remove any excess mod podge and eliminate air bubbles. Let dry. Then apply 2 more coats of mod podge to seal letting it dry completely in between each coat.
Step 4 – Whilst the mod podge is drying cut out the words that you would like to use for your coasters using black vinyl and your silhouette machine. Then using transfer paper transfer the words to your coasters.
And voila…. there you have a brand new set of DIY Farmhouse Music Sheet Coasters!
Hopefully, this easy project will inspire you to use all the things that you have in your home already to add a nice fresh new look to your home 🙂
Now, these coasters are all ready to serve another round of drinks in style! Don’t have time to make them? You can find a set over in my shop.
Don’t have time to make now? Be sure to PIN for later 🙂
These are fantastic. Sharing on Facebook.
Aww thank you so much, Debra for sharing and I’m so glad you like them 🙂
You are so clever. You’ll have to give me a lesson on the transfer of the type. I’ve always wanted to know how to do this!
Would love to give you a lesson Janine! It’s a fun project and once you do it you won’t stop at coasters!! LOL 🙂
Those turned out so beautifully. I have a bunch of sheet music I scored at a thrift store, now I just need to find some old coasters. I also have a cricut I got from a friend I need to learn how to use 🙂
You can also cut some shapes out using MDF and a jigsaw if you have one Toni! Haven’t tried a circuit but can totally vouch for a Silhouette Cameo!! I love it to BITS!! 🙂

Thank you so much, Theresa!!! As always a nice surprise and sure has made my weekend!! Thank you for having me 🙂
I love these Sam but for some reason, I am a sucker for coasters. They turned out so sweet. I really need to buy a silhouette. I can see how it makes your life so much easier.
So glad you like them, Debra!! I can highly recommend a silhouette the possibilities are endless with what you can do with it!!
As a musician, I find these fantastic!! Sorry I’m so late to stop by – been on vacation all week! Thanks for sharing on the Pleasures of the NW’s DIY link up!
These look great Sam. I love the whole music note trend at the moment. It’s so nostalgic and fun
It sure is Michelle!! I am with you on that for sure!
Love these, Sam! Thank you for sharing with us at Funtastic Friday! Pinning & sharing
Thank you Angie!
Things I typically toss and buy new, I have got to stop and think how can I reuse! I love these far better than your originals. Thank you for sharing them at TADA! Thursdays
So glad you like them, Debbie! Your tastes sure do change over time!!

Thank you for having me, Michelle!
Sam these are so awesome!
Thank you, Amber! They were a fun project to make!
Do you seal with poly to protect it?
Thank you so much,
Hi there Trina, I just used the Mod Podge as the sealant put you definitely use poly as well. They are still holding up really well and they get used everyday some 5 years later.
Been looking for some “music lover” gift ideas and these look great fun. Just need to find some sheet music and give it a go. Thank you for sharing your idea!
You’re most welcome Ruth!! Have fun making them! 🙂
