She Made Anthropologie Style Felted Drink Coasters

I’m officially nominating needle felting as the best “Couch Craft” ever (a term I’ve coined to describe easy yet satisfying crafts that you can enjoy while zoning out on the couch, watching a chick flick and eating chocolate…hmmm maybe I should call it a PMS Craft instead?)

Reasons for this nomination include:

1) Minimal tools needed.

2) Minimal materials needed with options to go crazy wild.

3) Minimal skill required to achieve amazing results (I.E my Anthropologie inspired coasters)

4) Great activity for all kinds of people (children, adults, non-crafters, crafters, party goers and so on)

Proof is in the pudding so check out the coasters I whipped up in about 30 minutes! The imperfect circles and wild flower colors make me think of something I’d see at an Anthropologie store.

Can we say Christmas gifts?

5 needle tool, felting brush, wool felt square and yarn.

To keep the backing simple and sew-less I simply used cork contact paper! Peeled away the contact paper backing and stuck it to the back of my coasters. After about an hour under a heavy book they turned out pretty flat with the cork contact paper securely stuck to the felt.

JP is actually couch crafting!

I had so much fun making the coasters that I left out the supplies and tools during our Labor Day party and of course our friends picked it right up and created the cutest citrus coasters. Further proving how amazing needle felting really is. Maybe I’ll nominate it for best cocktail craft too!
