This cute little Valentine’s Day craft was an easy way to keep the kiddo busy for half an hour. She loves her coaster, which now sits at her place mat, but it would be a cute teacher’s gift, too… if you can get your kid to part with it.
Supplies for Valentine’s Day Craft-Pompom Coasters:
- 2 small bags of mini pompoms
- tacky glue
- plastic packing material (the layer of plastic that comes in candy boxes is perfect for this)
- thin satin ribbon (not pictured)
Start by cutting a circle of felt and a circle of the plastic packing material to the same size. I used a coaster we already had and traced that form. Glue those two layers together.
Have your kiddo separate the colors you’ll be using. We made a heart shape, so we separated the pink and white pompoms from everything else.
Outline your desired shape with a thin line of Tacky Glue, and place the pink pompoms into the shape. Let dry for about 15 minutes.
Let that dry for another 15 minutes. Repeat the glue and fill-in step with the remaining colors of pompoms around the outside of the heart shape, all the way up to the edge. If desired, finish off with a thin strip of ribbon glued around the edge. Once dry, this little coaster is surprisingly sturdy.
