Coasters are practical items for your home. They’re responsible for protecting the surface where you place your cold beverages and steaming cups. Using coasters means you won’t have to deal with unpleasant water stains on your surfaces.

You can incorporate some beautiful fall-inspired coasters into your home. There are all sorts of sizes, colors, shapes, and materials to do so and we’re about to give you some examples. Opt for the style you like the most and use it to decorate any surfaces that might need a touch of fall.

Fall-inspired felt coasters

There are many original coasters designed with felt. This material is very easy to obtain and there’s a wide variety of colors in the market. So, we’ll now teach you how to make your own leaf-shaped fall-inspired coasters. You’ll need the following materials:

In order to make these coasters, you can select a few  felt  colors and play with the diversity of their fall tones. But first, you must make a paper template with your design.

Make any type of template you like and cut its shape. Then lay it flat on the felt surface and cut around it. You can make your coasters with a double layer of felt or a single one. It’s up to you.

Once you’ve trimmed all your felt sheets, you should finish the edges with a regular thread. It’ll be really beautiful if you use decorative stitches that contrast with the colors of the felt. Now your coaster is ready! You should have some beautiful felt leaf coasters like the ones in the above picture to put your cups or glasses on during the fall.

Another material for making leaf coasters is leather. You could also mix and match colors for a set of fall-inspired coasters with the colors of this season.

Just make a template, like one mentioned in the previous example and trim the leather around it, following the shape. You’ll soon have a beautiful leather surface on which to place your drinks.

Fall-inspired cork coasters

You can easily do this project. It’s just like the one with leather but using cork sheets. Keep the natural color of the cork or if you wish, or paint it.

It’s always a nice alternative to paint stripes with freehand brushstrokes in various shades of reds, yellows, and oranges. You’ll see how simple and original your coasters turn out to be.

Knitted coasters

If you know how to knit or crochet you can also make fall-inspired coasters. You can make them in the shape of a leaf or a pineapple or dry branches or with simple figures. If you opt for knitting squares or simple circles then you can do this with various colors of yarn to give them that touch of fall.

Also, you could add a small eyelet to one of their ends. This way you can stack them while keeping them all together so you can store them in your kitchen drawers.

As you can see, there’s a wide variety of coasters with fall-inspired designs. All you need is a little bit of creativity, a few materials and some simple steps to create some beautiful decorations for your home.

You’ll be able to protect any surfaces where you place your drinks and add a touch of color to the surfaces around your house. Additionally, they’ll bring an artisan, fall aesthetic to your home. So, have fun creating these wonderful coasters all by yourself.
