DIY | Floral Coasters

Tuesday, February 23


There's nothing I love more than combining flowers with...well, just about anything. Now that spring is just around the corner, I'm going to go a little floral crazy over here. First up, these cute and fun floral drink coasters that are great for adding a little unexpected pop to your table next time you're hosting a get-together. They could also make great, handmade gifts for someone's housewarming party! Overall, they're colorful, simple, and easy...just the way I like it!

    DIY FLORAL COASTERS
     PREP TIME: 5 minutes | CRAFT TIME: 15 minutes | DIFFICULTY: Easy




SUPPLIES:
Small plastic flowers
Plain fabric coasters (I used these)
Permanent glue or hot glue gun
Scissors

DIRECTIONS:
1. Start by cutting off the buds of the plastic flowers to the desired length. I generally left an inch or two of the stem so the flowers could curve around the coaster.
2. Decide how you want your flowers to be placed on the coaster. Keep them to the edges, as you want to leave enough room for the drinks!
3. Place glue when the flowers attach to the coaster and press down for 10-15 seconds, or until firmly set.
4. Continue to glue on flowers or leaves as you see fit. Don't hesitate to try out different designs!
5. It may be best to wait 1-2 hours after completing the coasters when the glue is completely dried and flowers are securely attached. Then, pop that champagne and call your friends over!


Did you pop the champagne yet? I told you these would be done in a hot minute! I hope they can brighten up your day or your next party. They would work great for differentiating drinks as each person can have a coaster with its own unique floral design. It's also a sure way to bring in some spring vibes if you're stuck in those winter blues. I drank a fresh cup of mango lemonade after making these floral coasters and I felt like I was transported to a tropical island. Of course, this effect is not guaranteed, but floral happiness will definitely occur. :)
