Braided Coaster - Homemade Gifts Kids Can Make (1)

If you have a child who can braid and use a needle and thread, they will have a blast making this braided coaster.  And it makes a great homemade gift for mom or dad. *wink, wink*

My 5 year old daughter and I spent an enjoyable afternoon making the braided coaster together.  She helped tie the material  and I took care of the sewing, braiding and hot gluing.

What You’ll Need:

  • A long-sleeved shirt*
  • Scissors
  • 2 Safety Pins
  • Needle & Thread
  • Felt
  • Hot Glue Gun

*I used one of my husband’s old dress shirts.  You can also use a pair of pants or even socks, although I suggest new.  😉

Find out how to make the braided coaster at Motherhood On A Dime, where I am excited to be guest-posting.
