Custom Coasters

Martha Stewart Living, March 2007

These blooming shapes add a shot of color to your tabletop. To make a set, you'll need a roll of thin cork and sheets of felt. 

Iron both on a low setting to flatten. Attach cork to the felt with a thin layer of white glue. Let dry for about 1 hour. 

Photocopy our template, enlarging as desired; our coasters are about 5 inches across. Trace template onto felt with a disappearing-ink pen. Cut out with scissors.

    Very easy. I can make them for my friends party. :)

    I love these coasters. They're easy and inexpensive to make, but look great. I made mine a little different though. I just cut squares of felt, and stitched a few lines on each with my sewing machine (it ended up looking like stripes). I glued each square to the felt and cut them out.

    What a simple and divine craft, and classy too. I will use my Big Shot cutting machine to die cut six felt stars and then hearts, at a time. it also cuts cork, so this will be a very easy craft for me to do. Thanks Martha for another delightful craft idea! I am at our forest Sierra land retreat and am going to try this craft now. This is where I get inspiration, thanks to YOU!

    So easy and so much fun! I used several different colors of felt, I even used leopard print! I can't wait to give them to my friends.

    I used beautiful fabric on one side and felt on the other, when not in use I put the fabric side up, they are so pretty. I used fabric glue aroung the edges to seal the fabric.
