- flannel shirt (or flannel pajama pants)
- coasters (square ones are easier to work with)
- glue gun
- I was originally going to make this with a sweater, but decided that was too bulk/fibers could melt, so I went with cozy flannel. Since I didn't have one I wanted to part with, I headed to Goodwill thrift store and grabbed one for a couple of bucks. They have them in the women, kid, and men's departments. You can also try pajama pants.
- Next, I bought coasters. These were a little over a dollar. I wanted square ones since they would be easier to work with.
- Place the coaster on the fabric (more hints in the video below) and cut out slightly larger than the flannel.
Then you'll add glue and place the fabric on top, smoothing out bumps. Flip over (as pictured) and glue to sides down. You can cut away the excess fabric if needed. You can see a demo of this in the video.
And that's it! Your DIY flannel coasters (made under $5) are ready for your favorite fall drink. I enjoyed mine out on my balcony. Here's a quick 2 minute video showing all of that--I'm really happy with how this came out, so I hope you watch:
And here's what my sisters made for their $5 Fall Craft Challenge:
|My sister Jess took a curtain she found at Dollar General and turned it into slip covers (see the before and after above) and as panels on her entertainment center. She said she didn't sew them.|
|My sister Holly made this fall candle arrangement using materials she found at Dollar General: hurricane lamp, popcorn kernels (free), fall decorative leaves, and an orange ribbon!|
