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.

Instructions
1. Cut both types of fabrics into five strips using pinking shears. These strips should be approximately equal in size.
