Whether they serve true purpose, or simply act as home decor, coasters are small, but statement-making pieces that are usually disregarded. I never really appreciated them until the surface of my wooden desk deteriorated over the years of negligence. Once I got passed the actual need for them, I thought this would be a fun little way to add some character to my room. Of course at that time I was considering buying them.
A few Pinterest scrolls later, I found this DIY via Ciera Design Studio and started cutting hexagon after hexagon for my new geometric coasters.
All you need are a pair of scissors, some glue, and felt in two different colours (one for your base and the other for your hexagons). The base should be a 4x4 inch square, cut as straight as possible. You might want to use graph paper to draw one initial hexagon that you can use to trace on felt. Once you've cut up 14 hexagon pieces, you can start arranging them in preferred order. To stick the pieces on the base, I used Mod Podge because I didn't have felt glue; but a glue gun works just fine too. Once the pieces are all glued on, cut off the edges and let your glue dry.
I used a navy on white/white on navy colour contrast and made one of each because I couldn't decide which combination I liked better. Scratch that, I still can't decide! & It's a good thing I don't have to!
So grab your felt and get cutting! Your furniture will thank you!
