Felt Coasters

These coasters are so cute ! If you normally use coasters, especially with glass furniture, this will be a nice change from your usual ones.

Being in the middle of the festive season - well, it will fit right in with any decor!  At first I thought maybe {because of the small pieces of felt glued to the main rounds} a glass will be wonky on these, but there is no problem. To make two, it took me 15 minutes.

This is what I used:

White Felt rounds - for the face
Small Black Felt rounds - eyes
A piece of colored Felt - scarf {make small slits in the one end to make it look frilled}
Black Felt - hats
Orange Fabric Paint - nose
Green Fabric Paint - marks on red scarf
Red Fabric Paint - mouth and marks on the green scarf
Paint brush {small}
Fabric Glue

Glue the eyes, hat and scarf to the White rounds - Paint a nose, using the orange paint - Paint/dab a mouth using the red paint.  {I really do wish Picasso was still around... I seriously need some painting lessons}

I made some random marks on the scarves with the paint brush and cut away some of the scarf as well {It just did not look right with the cornered edge}. I am not quite happy with the scarves though, something still looks wrong, what do you think?

This is an easy craft for the kids - get each one to make their own, they might be more willing to use coasters if it's their own handy work! Also, see my Kid's Felt Cutlery Mats if you haven't already.

I still have lots of Felt left ... expect some more {easy of course} Felt crafts ...

Ciao for now,
