Make Your Own Coasters

wooden coaster diy
I have all sorts of scraps in my home; scraps of fabric, scraps of thread, scraps of wool and scraps of wood. I had some scraps that I had been using as sanding blocks, you know the wood that you wrap sandpaper around when you are sanding. The wood scraps were so nice that I decided they were due for an upgrade.
