Leaf Coasters

I like fall. The leaves turn such interesting colours here in my corner of the world. I love the reds and oranges and yellows, they are so beautiful. Somehow I always end up with leaves in my hand.

Leaf Coasters

A couple of weeks ago I created some coasters from felt and this time I wanted to try something similar, but with leaves. I had leaves with different colours from green to red that are flat and have the least amount of damage.

First I glued the leaves to a sheet of paper from an old exercise book. After deciding on the pattern, I cut out all the shapes I needed and then glued them on another sheet of paper. Then I traced the edges with my sharpie because I liked the look better and used my iron to dry and flat out the coasters. Use medium heat and also, you don’t want any steam — so no water in the iron! Finally, I used some decoupage glue to coat the coasters.



Each coaster is 10 cm x 10 cm (about 4 inches by 4 inches). I used some great old quilting block desings, and of course I had to try a crazy block with the tiny scraps I had after the normal blocks. To have better colours, I used my scanner for the following images.




Cheers,
