Halloween Fabric Coasters Using Cricut Glitter Iron-on
Get ready for Halloween with these spooky yet adorable fabric coasters. Using Halloween fabric scraps and a glitter iron-on spider design from Cricut Access, you can create a set of hand-stitched coasters that are perfect for your next Halloween get-together. With a simple blanket stitch around the edges and concentric circles stitched towards the center, these coasters have a handmade touch that adds to their charm. Plus, the glittery spider design adds a touch of fun and sparkle to your table setting. Follow this tutorial to create your own set of Halloween fabric coasters and add a touch of handmade charm to your Halloween decor.
- Halloween fabric
- Embroidery needle and floss
- Cricut glitter iron-on
Cut two 4.5 inch diameter fabric circles for each coaster and one 4.5 inch circle of batting.
Sandwich the batting between the 2 circles of fabric and pin all the layers together as shown.
Stitch around the edge of the fabric using a blanket stitch. (See the DMC stitch guide at https://www.dmc.com/uk/p-embroidery-stitch-guide.html.)
Using a simple running stitch, create concentric circles about .25 inches apart, beginning from the outer edge of the coaster and working towards the center. (See the DMC stitch guide at https://www.dmc.com/uk/p-embroidery-stitch-guide.html.)
Create a spider cut design in Cricut Design Space, sizing the spider to about 2 inches wide to fit on the coaster. I’m using spider design #M8DB1F87, included with Cricut Access.
Make the project using black glitter iron-on, remembering to mirror your design prior to cutting. Weed the cut design.
Using a Cricut EasyPress or household iron, iron one spider on each coaster following the manufacturer’s instructions.
