DIY Rock Coaster

This is probably the easiest, fastest DIY project I’ve completed thus far. These are an easy way to add a natural element to your home. I chose to make coasters specifically for my coffee/tea cups so mine are a bit smaller; however, size can be changed to accommodate tea pots, coffee pots, etc. Keep in the mind that the glue will melt if it gets too hot.

Things You Will Need:

Felt

Pebbles (Walmart in the candle section)

Hot melt glue

Step 1:

Cut your felt in a circular shape (it doesn’t have to be perfect). I measured mine to be slightly larger than the base of a standard coffee mug.

Step 2:

Arrange your pebbles on the felt until you are comfortable with the layout. Try to use flat rocks for the best results. This may also be a good time to test whether or not a cup will balance on the rocks you’ve chosen.

Step 3:

Hot melt glue your rocks to the felt.

Voila! You have a coaster.
