Hello, hello, hello, my dear Kenarry friends! It’s Robin from A Home To Grow Old In again, and I’m back with a crazy easy no-sew project that will help get you prepared for your holiday entertaining. You will have these no-sew flannel coasters done in 5 minutes, and they are so great to have around during the holidays. I’ve made about 12 of these coasters in both fall and Christmas colors so that they are everywhere my guests will think about setting their glasses down.

Here’s what you’ll need to make the flannel coasters:
- flannel (either from a fabric store or an old shirt)
- spray adhesive
- fabric scissors
- another coaster to be used as a template or cut a 4″ square out of card stock or posterboard
The process I used to make this is very similar to the flannel holiday banner I shared last year (can you tell I have a flannel thing?). First, spray both the flannel and felt with spray adhesive. The flannel I used looked the same on the back and front, so it didn’t matter which side I sprayed, but you’ll want to spray the back if there is a backside.
Sandwich the flannel and felt together with the adhesive side facing each other in the middle. I traced another coaster onto the front of my flannel piece using a marker, but you could also use a 4″ square cut out of cardstock or posterboard as a template. Tracing the template onto the front of the fabric allows you to align your square with the pattern so things don’t end up crooked.
Trace as many squares onto your fabric as you can fit.
Cut out your squares, and make sure to cut inside the lines so that no marker is showing.
That’s it, you’re done! How easy is that? And, how cute are these flannel coasters? I think this goes down as both the fastest and easiest DIY that I’ve ever shared, but you know what? I’ve been making these for a while now, and I use them more than almost anything else that I’ve ever made. They are so handy to have around when you have a lot of extra guests at Thanksgiving or Christmas. I can’t imagine having a holiday party without them.
