Foam coasters may not be the right choice for an adult party, so consider making your Halloween drinks spooktacular with creepy coasters made from felt.

What You'll Need

  • Pencil or white colored pencil
  • Stiffened felt sheets in Halloween colors
  • Pinking shears
  • Scissors
  • Fine-tip scissors (such as embroidery scissors)
  • Fabric glue

Step 1: Download the Felt Coasters pattern as a PDF. Trace the circle pattern onto felt twice. Use pinking shears to cut out the circles, cutting just outside the traced line.

­Step 2: Create the coaster's middle layer by tracing the circle pattern onto a different color felt; cut along the traced line with regular scissors.

Carefully trace your image onto the felt.

Step 3: Trace a silhouette shape onto one of the circles with the pinked edge. Use embroidery scissors to cut out the shape, starting inside the shape so the edge of the circle is left undisturbed.

Embroidery scissors are perfect for cutting small details.
