Week 1 – Felt Coasters

So, as I will be spending a lot of time in my crafting room over the next year I thought I would start off with making something useful for in there.

I’ve got a huge collection of these felt balls and thought I would have a go at turning them into a coaster for those all important cups of tea and coffee!!

So simple to make – just needed my hot glue gun and a selection of felt balls. Simply glue them together in any pattern – I went for a total random mix – and there we have it.

Next time I think I would use a slightly smaller ball – I think the ones I have are either a 2 or 3cm – and I would also consider popping a thin piece of cork on the back just to give it some extra strength. Other than that I am very happy with the end result – it was so quick to make so I will definitely be making more – maybe some coordinating colour ones and even some large pan holders!
