I love this time of year!  Fall is my favorite season.  It is a great time to fit some crafting in for gifts and a great time to try out all those yummy pumpkin flavored drinks and treats!  This week, I sat down with a fresh cup of Dunkin Donuts® Coffee and created some fun Interlocking Felt Coasters to go along with it!

These coasters are easy to create, make great gifts, require absolutely no sewing, and make great coasters for your morning coffee!  And… there is a free pattern!

What more could you ask for?

Well, I guess you could ask for some awesome Dunkin Donuts® Seasonals Limited Time Pumpkin Spice or some Dunkin Donuts® Bakery Series Chocolate Glazed Donut coffee.  Sounds yummy?

You bet!

I found a whole selection of fun new flavors at my local Kroger.  I love to add Land O Lakes® Fat Free Half and Half to mine for a smooth creamy coffee break on a crisp Fall day.

Yes, Fall is just beautiful in Northern Arizona.  We are so happy to be able to enjoy this part of the country right now.  I’ve got my handsome hubby, some beautiful leaves, my fragrant coffee, and now I just need some fun coasters to set it on!

Want to know how to make them?

For this project I used:

Several 9 x 12 sheets of felt in various colors
Craft knife
Cutting mat
Scissors
White glue
Gemstones

Free Pattern from How About Orange

Print out about 10 copies of the pattern.  (Click on the link above to go to the pattern). Pin a pattern page to a sheet of felt.

Use a sharp craft knife to cut the vertical slits into the felt.

Use scissors to cut out the individual squares.  Then cut the notches following the lines on the pattern.

Create as many squares as you like!  For the coasters in this project, I used 13 squares for each one.

Begin locking pieces together by pulling the arrow-shaped tabs through the slots from the back through to the front side. Connect as many pieces as you like.   Be sure to keep all your tabs facing the top of your coaster.

Here I’ve connected four squares.

And here is a total of 13 squares connected.

Trim the extra edges of felt off to end up with a 4″ x 4″ coaster.

Now trim the corners of the tabs.  I left about 1/4″ of each tab.

You can end your coasters at this point, or continue on with a bit of bling!

I wanted my coasters to have a bit more strength.  Cut out 4″ x 4″ squares of felt for backing.  Add white glue to the squares and place the interlocked felt square on top.  Allow to dry.

For a final touch of bling, glue on gemstones!

These cute coasters make great gifts.

Love this idea?

How about placemats, table runners or pillow covers?  There are so many possibilities with this fun and easy technique!  Simply add more squares together until you reach the size that you would like!

    What a fun project. I can think of a ton of color combinations I’d love to do. Great for the kids to work on as gifts. #client
