We love browsing through DIY projects over at Design*Sponge. We're always inspired to craft something out of the random stuff we have stashed in our junk drawer -- even though we rarely do it. But, this particular project caught our eye because of the fun and colorful way it makes the most of two of our favorite green materials: felt and cork.
The directions to make these coasters are incredibly simple -- we're not hardcore crafters, but we think we could even pull 'em off. All you need is some craft felt (or splurge for the good stuff at the fabric store), some thin cork, glue, and a hole punch. Years ago we tried to make coasters out of cork and old CDs. It was an unattractive disaster. We like Design*Sponge's idea much better. images via Design*Sponge
