You guys, you've seen felt balls before right?! These amazing little round balls of crafty, felted sweetness? Over at Benzie we prefer to call them pom-poms because they are more then just a ball -it's a felt ball of cheer (or a pom-pom)!! We picked up Benzie's smallest size (1cm) and some cork and got to work making ourselves a set of cozy coasters.
Here are supplies you will need:
- Benzie's Pom-Poms in 1cm size. We used 61 poms per coaster but suggest getting a few more as some poms run larger or smaller then 1cm.
- Cork or matte board in 1/8" thickness.
- Hexagon Pattern
- Glue, our all time favorite is a basic, easy hot glue gun but you can use whatever you have on hand.
To make the base for the coasters use our hexagon pattern to trace and cut onto cork or heavy matte board. You can use a scissors or an exacto knife, we cut down circle coasters to about 4" wide.
I started in the middle of the hexagon by placing 9 poms down the center with hot glue. It comes together quickly when making one long strip of glue down the middle and lining up poms one after another.
Try different color combos or try making a large one for a trivet! Make this project and tag #benziefelt -I want to see what you're making!
