Hey there! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend. I can’t even believe that Christmas is 2 weeks from tomorrow! I’m in full on Christmas gift-making mode. I have so many people on my list who are so hard to buy for… they always say they never want/need anything and really seem to have everything; do you have any of those on your list? Those are the people I love to make gifts for. My most recent gift project is these DIY Coasters made with buffalo check flannel and silver iron-on snowflakes. Everyone can use coasters right? Even if they have some, these cozies are the perfect winter set.
These DIY coasters are so easy to make and very inexpensive too. Here’s everything you need to make some!
BUFFALO CHECK & SNOWFLAKE DIY COASTERS
- 4 ¼” square tiles
- Flannel fabric
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Cricut Silver Iron-on
- Snowflakes cut file
- Spray adhesive
- Glue gun
- Felt pads
The material for the DIY coasters came from adorable little buffalo check gift sacks that I found in my happy place – the Target dollar spot. Are you as obsessed with that little corner of Target like me? I cut the 2 sacks in half and cut out 4 squares slightly larger than the tiles. You can use whatever material is your favorite; I liked using the flannel because it has very little fray.
Position the tiles in the center of the buffalo check squares and attach the fabric to the tiles with spray adhesive. Cut out squares in the corners of the fabric so the material will fold over the sides easily.
To secure the fabric to the sides of the tiles, run a strip of hot glue along the entire side edges, fold the fabric over and press into the tiles. Once completely dry, cut off the excess overhanging fabric on the bottom of the tiles.
Next for the fun part, the snowflakes. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2 I cut out 4 silver iron-on snowflakes for my DIY coasters. When cutting iron-on, remember that the shiny liner side should always be face down on the cutting mat. I’ve forgotten that a few times. Wah wah.
Allow iron to heat to hottest setting and cover snowflake design with a press cloth and press for about 15 seconds. Ensure iron-on has adhered before pulling away the liner.
To finish the DIY coasters off, attach small round felt adhesive pads to the bottom to protect the surface where the coasters will live.
And that’s it! Now these DIY coasters all ready for some hot cocoa and so am I! 😉 Have a lovely, cozy evening my friends!
Pin it for later!
