Instructions
1. Start by cutting up along the outside line of the “safety zone” in the green section of the board. After the fourth square up, turn the board and cut across four squares. Turn the board a third time and cut down, ending along the outside line of the bottom four squares.
2. Trim off and discard the board below the bottom four squares.
3. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge across the coaster. Allow it to dry. This will protect the coaster from condensation.
4. Use a high temp glue gun to glue the yarn around all four sides of the coaster. Trim the yarn and allow the glue to dry.
5. Repeat for the other three colors on the board. If desired, make coasters out of the “home” sections.
