After finishing up a super zen coloring session, I love looking at my newly colorful creation. Coloring pages can be so pretty, it’s hard to just leave them inside their books or throw them away when you’re done. I’m always looking for fun ways to show off my perfectly executed coloring skills, and this coaster craft is one of my favorites.
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!
These coasters are so quick and easy, a whole set could probably be made from start to finish in about an hour.
Whether you’re experiencing the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having here in Portland or the strangely chilly weather in the NE these bright tie dye crafts are sure to be a crowd pleaser. Traditional tie dye can be kind of messy so I’d recommend a warm day in the backyard for those projects, but the Sharpie tie dye experiments and the tie dye clay can definitely be indoor activities as well. I hope you enjoy these Tie Dye favorites!
Clay is fun and easy to work with for kids and adults. The bright mix of colors is fun to create and use to decorate clay pots and coasters. These would also make great gifts for teachers and grandparents!

Often times at parties, it’s easy for wine glasses to get confused. There are countless “wine charm” products out there for you to buy to have guests put on their glasses; there are even DIY wine charm projects out there. But wine charms don’t protect your wood surfaces from damage; you still need a coaster for that. So, why not combine the idea of a wine charm with the practicality of a coaster? Follow this tutorial and make wine coasters out of all your scrap fabrics. Guests will be able to identify their wine glass by the fabric on their coaster and you don’t have to worry about running around with coasters!
