This next super cute D.I.Y. was Kinsey's idea! We stitched them up together on a sunny afternoon. If you choose to hand stitch each coaster takes about an hour. Machine stitching would be much quicker, and both versions are cute-as-can-be! Here's how we made this woodsy coaster set...
1. Supplies Needed: dark brown + light brown flannel (1/4 yard of each), embroidery thread and needles, green felt for leaves (i used fancy felt from Giant Dwarf), chalk and scissors. 2. Using chalk, Draw a circle on your dark brown flannel the size you would like your coaster to be. We used a small mixing bowl as a template. 3-4. Cut the light brown circle slightly smaller than the dark circle. Don't worry about using a template for this one as imperfection is absolutely perfect for this project! 5. Start stitching from the center in a spiral all the way around your coaster to the edge. Then go backwards and fill in the stitch gaps with more stitches. Do this until the entire light brown circle is covered in rings. Be sure to make your rings imperfect, as a real tree stump would be. 6. Stitch leaves to the back of your stump and you are done. Hooray! ♥
This project is a little time consuming, but also incredibly relaxing to create! It's a great project to do while sipping tea and watching a favorite movie at home.
