DIY felt ball coasters

I had a heap of felt balls leftover from my recent baby shower and was wondering what I do possibly do with them when inspiration suddenly struck. You know how much I love adding a few simple homemade touches to the house; these felt ball coasters are my latest creation. I like that they're bright and cheery and don't take too much time to make at all.
Materials

Felt balls (I bought a pack for $2.50 at the dollar store)
Cork coasters
Hot glue gun

Method

1. With hot glue gun, glue one felt ball in the centre of coaster.

2. Add more felt balls close to each other until coaster is completely covered.

HI (again) and AGAIN a HUGE congratulations to you. What a beautiful little boy you have - such a precious gift!!

btw, this post is divine - that is such a sweet DIY and reminds me of that amazing rug (I can't remember what it's called but it's basically a larger version of these coasters). Great Idea! I'm pinning this :)
