With Pom-Poms being all the rage, I decided to come up with a simple project that almost anyone can make. This would even be a great project for kids and with this easy method, you could create placemats, trivets, coasters or a variety of other things. Just make sure you don't put anything too hot on your finished project since many of the pre-made pom-poms have polyester in them (which will melt under high heat).
You'll need minimal supplies for this project, which makes it easy and inexpensive!
Makes six 4 1/2" x 4" coasters
One 9"x12" Creatology™ peel and stick felt sheet (available at Michaels craft stores)
Five packages of Creatology .75 inch/19 mm pom-poms (each package contains 80 pieces and can be found at Michaels craft stores)
Measure and cut the felt sheet into 4 1/2" x 4" pieces.
Simply peel away the backing of felt pieces and press pom-poms firmly on the sticky back.
Experiment with different colors of pom-poms, using those of your choice. The pom-poms are sold in packages with different color combinations so you can create something for your own decor!
You'll be pleased that your coaster will have a nice soft felt backing that won't scratch your table surface!
