I wanted these coasters to be made in holiday colors AND I wanted to be able to use them all year long.
So here’s what I’ve come up with: I did not specifically use Christmas prints. Just sticking with the red, white, and green prints did the job. And we’ll be able to use them all the time!
It’s an easy project, and quick too, and you don’t require any pattern for these. Just fabric scissors or rotary cutter and a ruler.

How To Make Coasters
- five scrap pieces of fabric (5″ or 13cm squares) in your favorite color combination
- a 4 1/2 inch (11.5cm) square of fusible fleece
- matching thread
- sewing machine
- optional: rotary cutter and cutting mat (I use this one by OLFA)
Cut Your Fabric Pieces – Step 1
Add Fusible Fleece – Step 2
Fuse a piece of fusible fleece onto one of the pieces. It will become the back of the coaster.
Folding Step – Step 3
Fold the remaining four of your squares in half, wrong sides together and press.
Stack The Pieces – Step 4
With your bottom square right side up, layer the rectangles onto the square covering it. See the image below.
When placing down the fourth rectangle (see #4 on image below), flip up the first piece and tuck the last one under the first piece – they will overlap, just like the rest of the folded pieces.
Sew Around – Step 6
Clip or pin all the pieces in place, then sew along all four edges using a 1/4″ (7 mm) seam allowance.
Trim Corners – Step 7
Trim the corners to reduce bulk. Here’s a good guide on clipping corners if you are new to sewing.
Turn Right Side Out – Step 8
Turn the coaster right side out, reaching into the center between the rectangles.
Press The Finished Diy Christmas Coaster – Step 9
Push out the corners and press. Voila!
Done and ready for holiday home decorating! Any Christmas gatherings planned? Going to a New Year’s Eve party? These diy coasters would make a great hostess gift.
