DIY Woven Felt Coasters

It's March! Time to take down the Valentine's hearts and add some splashes of green around! Coasters are an inexpensive -- yet useful -- way to change up your decor. 

Last month I made some fun little coasters out of ceramic tiles. With the "I love you" written on one, they had a bit of Valentine's Day flair. This last week, I created some new GREEN coasters that would be great for St. Patrick's Day.

Do you remember paper weaving? We used to do it every year in elementary school to make Thanksgiving placemats. I always loved doing it. Last week, I called on those long-unused paper-weaving skills and tried it with felt for my coasters. It was rather enjoyable to do. Stop by DIY Your Way today to learn how to make your own DIY Woven Felt Coasters.  

If you like paper weaving, this woven paper storage box is a fun project too. I just love to re-purpose something and make it pretty. These boxes turned out even better than I thought they would. I would love to make more...I just gotta find the time to do it.
