DIY Fall Fabric Coasters

Fall: A time of crisp mornings, toasty backyard fires, and best of all, jumping into piles of multicolored leaves. Bring that colorful fall feeling into your home by creating a few vibrant felt coasters. Not only are they beautiful, but they'll protect your coffee table from those steaming cups of hot cocoa you'll be sipping now that the weather is cooler. Made from two layers of thick felt and a little stitching on the sewing machine, they will dress up your end tables and help you embrace autumn in style.
