Felt Scraps

Get your felt scraps into 1cm wide strips in a mix of your favourite Autumn colours. I used a rotary cutter but you can use scissors.

Choose your first colour and curl it up into a small tight roll using a small amount of glue to secure in place. Cut away any felt not rolled up to use later.

Continue adding a few more different coloured layers until you get your first roll to the size you want (I space out small blobs of glue rather than gluing the whole strip). Repeat this process so you ave two small multicoloured rolls (they don’t have to be the same size).

Now you need to glue the two small rolls together and then carefully glue another strip of felt around both of these rolls.

Keep building up your layers and adding extra rolls until you get the coaster size you want.

Top Tip:

Work with the good side facing down onto the table so you can keep one side nice and flat/even. Use sharp scissors to trim any uneven areas any glue overspill.
