Easy Fabric Hexagon Coasters

Fabric Coaster tutorial with a free template!

My husband is a card carrying member of the coaster police, which is fine… if you don’t only have stone coasters, a glass coffee table… and a 1 year old. Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of me moving the coasters out of her reach, and the C.P. (Coaster Police) putting them back only to have to stop the 1 year old from banging them on the coffee table. Something had to change, the easy solution fabric coasters!

By Home Decor Contributor Alyssa

Get excited about living a healthy lifestyle with pretty hand painted planters to hold cress sprouts!

I committed recently to a healthier lifestyle. My norm used to be weekly runs to Taco Time, frequent binge watching of Netflix shows, the occasional walk on my lunch break to get out of the office, but not much else in the way of exercise. After realizing that while this lifestyle was easy, it was not making me feel very good about myself, something clicked in my brain and I became very determined to change. Enter the fun new healthy recipes, weird apartment-sized exercise equipment, and desperate attempt to make this drastic change a bit more convenient for myself. Although these little planters are just a small step in the right direction, they’re fun and they inspire me to make good choices every time I see them.
