How to make Halloween fabric scrap coasters

Decorations are a key part to any Halloween party but are expensive considering they are used only once a year. Instead, make decorations by using leftover or scrap pieces of fabric for a customized and inexpensive solution.
These fabric coasters are an ideal party decoration as they add Halloween flair to any space, as well as provide a function. Simply place these coasters on coffee tables, mantels and dining tables before the party and prevent surfaces from getting ruined while adding a touch of the season. For a unified look, choose fabrics that share the same color scheme as the rest of the decorations.
