- Lay your pumpkin face template over your cork coaster and use a sharpie to apply pressure on the corners of the eyes and mouth of the face so the ink seeps through.
- Remove the template and join up the dots below to create the face of the pumpkin on your coaster.
- Use your hot glue gun to begin securing pompoms to your coaster. Start with the black pompoms to create the eyes and mouth, using your drawing as a guide. Be sure to only add glue to the coaster in small sections as hot glue will dry rapidly.
- Cut out a small section of green felt for the pumpkin stalk using the template provided. Secure with hot glue to the top of the pumpkin.
- Once you've completed the black pompoms and the stalk, move on to the orange pompoms, securing them in small sections at a time. Note: I started from the middle but I recommend starting from the outer edge so you can achieve a really neat circle around the edge.
- Lastly, stand back and marvel at your beautiful new pumpkin coaster!
* Take care when using a hot glue gun during this DIY. Applying pompoms can be quite fiddly and your fingers do come very close to glue.
