I don’t know about you, but when we have Halloween parties we have many more guests than we have coasters. I found a fun, inexpensive, and easy way to create my own coasters that even fit our party theme. Cookie cutters and stencils are used to create a simple shape out of a thin foam sheet and they are attached to a round of thicker foam. These sheets cost $ .50-$1.00 each depending on where you purchase them. They are available at craft stores.
Handmade Halloween Foam Coasters
1 sheet 2 mm black foam
1 sheet 6 mm white foam
3″ round cookie cutter
Halloween cookie cutters or Halloween stencils*
*I used this werewolf template to create the werewolf coasters
and a cat and bat cookie cutter for the others.
Press a 3″ round cookie cutter into the 6mm white foam. Use scissors to cut around the circle. Press a cookie cutter (smaller than 3″) into the 2mm black foam. Cut around the image. Glue the cut out onto the round. Allow to dry for at least 1 hour. Repeat. If using a stencil or one of my templates, lay the stencil on the black foam. Mark along the edges and cut out image.
