I love creating things and today I'm sharing one of my latest projects - DIY Fabric Coasters. You won't believe how simple they are to make and better yet, you can make these DIY fabric coasters to fit every decor. These make perfect handmade gifts for the holidays and I already have a few people in mind to gift a set to!
DIY Fabric Coasters
You'll need the following supplies to make your DIY Fabric Coasters:
- Fabric quarters
- Fabric cutter and board
- Ceramic tiles - 4x4 inches
- Cork board
- All purpose glue
- (optional) Bonded Polyester Quilt Batting
Step 1 - Trim your fabric to 6x6 inches.
Step 2. Lay fabric upside down, set tile upside down on top of it, right in the middle. There will be 1 inch of fabric overhang all around the tile. ****If you'd like a softer coaster, and a layer to absorb wetness, add a 4x4 inch piece of Bonded Polyester Quilt Batting between the tile and the fabric.
Step 3. Apply glue?to one edge of tile. Flap fabric over and rub gently with your fingers to adhere. Repeat on the opposite side of tile.
Step 4. Wrap the sides. This is a two step process for a neat finish.
Make a corner like you're wrapping a present, then glue the edge down as shown in the photo below. Gently hold down with your finger to adhere.
Apply glue to entire edge of tile, including on top of the fabric corners you just did. Flap fabric over and rub gently with your fingers to adhere. Repeat these two steps on the opposite side of tile.
Step 5. Trim your cork board to just under 4x4 inches.
Step 6. Apply a generous amount of glue to one side of cork board, covering all of the edges and middle well. Apply to the bottom of the tile, covering each fabric edge.
That's it! Pretty easy, right?! Now you've got a beautiful set of fabric coasters?to use in your home or gift to a friend.
How to care for fabric coasters
Caring for the coasters is easy. I use a Scotch-Brite? Lint Roller, which is perfect for cleaning off any dust or debris?that may stick to the fabric.
Scotch-Brite Lint Rollers aren't just perfect for keeping your fabric coasters clean though, they also keep clothes lint, hair & fuzz free too. They work well on all your clothes including pants, sweaters and even coasts and dresses.
We use Scotch-Brite Lint Rollers for everything and always keep a few in the house. It's pretty much a necessity when you have pets and I love that they have a "Tears Cleanly Guaranteed" slogan because that makes things so much easier. We even keep a?Scotch-Brite Lint Roller in the truck'so that the seats are always nice and clean.
The Scotch-Brite? 50% Stickier Lint Roller is great for larger debris like pet hair and can even pick up things like sand and glitter. The Scotch-Brite? Printed Lint Roller is also available and is super cute with designs on every sheet!
I grabbed my Scotch-Brite Lint Rollers from the cleaning aisle at Walmart but they can also be found in the closet/laundry aisle and the sewing/notions area. Check out these other?great ideas to inspire you!
