This idea comes from a very close friend… and believe me it’s fab!
She (and her scrummy little boy) followed these steps to make their creations:
First, they made two felt squares, for a back and front.
They then decorated the front of their coasters with stitching and felt shapes (robins, snowmen, stars).
Using blanket stitch, they sewed round three sides and before closing it all up completely…
…they stuffed the insides with cloves, cinnamon and Christmassy spices.
When a hot drink is put on top of the coaster (can you guess)?
A wondrous, festive scent is released!
What a completely perfect activity for a chilly afternoon!
