Felt log circle drink coasters

25 Jun

I am a big fan of cute I am also a big fan of useful, these DIY felt log coasters / trivets are both! These felt coasters don’t require any sewing and look so cute!

These simple felt woodland coasters are held together with hot glue and can be made into any size you like. I think these DIY felt log cuts look great as coasters but they could just as easily create an adorable trivet for your pots and pans or even a beautiful mat for a cake stand.

Felt tree stump coasters make lovely gifts in a basket of artisan tea and a personalized mug or scones.

The key to the perfect felt tree trunk coasters is all in the prep, the more even you can cut the strips the better your results of course you can always trim off mistakes as you go if your cuts are less than perfectly even.

If you are a quilter no doubt cutting these felt strips will likely be a simple task. If you don’t have a rotary cutter no problem just cut into strips with scissors. More tips on cutting below.

You will need:

To make a set of 4 log coasters:

1/2 yard tan felt, I used Pastry

1/2 yard dark brown felt I used Brownie

Hot Glue and glue gun

Cut:

4- 4″ circles from outer bark colored felt

Cut tan and the remaining scraps dark brown into 1/2″ ribbons

To make cutting easier you can use a ruler or cut a scrap of cardboard into 1/2″ wide strip. Trace lines onto felt and cut.

Cut 1/2″ felt into a 5″ length and roll to create the center. Glue felt with hot glue as you roll.

Alternate between tan and bark color felt. There isn’t any set length just glue until you are happy with the look and switch colors as you go. Try to line the ribbons up as evenly as possible.

When you get the felt tree trivet the size of your bottom circle wrap with a final dark brown outside. Glue cut lengths (anywhere from 1/4″ – 2″ long) randomly along the outside to create shingled bark look. Round the felt log coaster between your hands until it sits as evenly as possible and trim if needed.

Chose the less attractive side and coat with hot glue, leave the outside of the felt log cut free of glue so when you place the back it doesn’t overflow.

Pace the back and press down, go back along edges and glue down any sides that need it.

Enjoy you’re new cottage inspired felt coasters.

Happy Crafting!
