NO SEW FELT STRAWBERRY TUTORIAL

Protect your surfaces in style with a handmade felt strawberry coaster. This tutorial breaks down the process into five simple steps.

Protect your surfaces in style with a handmade felt strawberry coaster. This tutorial breaks down the process into five simple steps.

Step 1: Cut Out Shapes

Using a sharp pair of cut out a basic strawberry shape from a scrap piece of red felt. Carefully cut out the top of the strawberry and then use that piece as a guide to cut out the strawberry leaf top. This way, we will be sure that the green felt will fit correctly.

Step 2: Apply Glue

Apply a generous amount of glue onto the back of each felt shape. You want the glue to soak into the felt a bit and have more sitting on top.

Set aside the glue-covered felt pieces for a few minutes. This allows the wet glue to get tacky to the touch and helps adhere the felt better.

Step 3: Adhere onto the Coaster Base.

I am using burlap paper for the back of the coasters, this paper has burlap on one side and paper on the back of it. If you don’t have this you should be able to easily use cardboard or chipboard in its place.
Adhere the felt shapes onto the back of the burlap paper. Slowly place the green felt leaves into place and make sure that the red and green felt pieces join snuggly.

Step 4: Cut out the coaster

Carefully cut around the coaster shape using a sharp pair of non stick scissors. The non stick makes it MUCH easier to cut the sticky layers.

Step 5: Add Details

Finally, add the strawberry seeds with a black permanent marker. It is really used to draw these in even though it is felt! Let the glue dry a bit before you go to draw the seeds though.

I used mainly stuff from my craft stash for these DIY felt coasters- some felt scraps, scissors, glue, burlap paper, and a black marker.

And that’s it! No sewing is involved in the making of these DIY Felt Strawberry coasters and that is what makes it a quick craft! I love how these turned out!

  4. These are so very cute and I seriously have a million uses for that burlap paper….thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Hey Smitha! I love love love that you dressed up for this crafty project by getting a strawberry manicure! The other day I realized that my nails were painted the same color as my current knitting project…what fun! I love the strawberry but an orange or a kiwi would be fun, too. Pinning this tutorial for later ๐Ÿ˜‰
