Tools and Materials

In fact, you can find everything you need on Amazon!

The process of making these coasters is straightforward however a little tip is don’t be tempted to try and substitute the hot glue with school glue!

Why?

Well, we’ve tried that and it simply doesn’t work… the pom poms will just slip and slide all over the place and even when dry they don’t adhere very well.

With hot glue, the pom-poms will adhere super quickly and you won’t believe how difficult (almost impossible) they are to pull off!

DIY Rudolph Pom-Pom Coaster Method

STEP 1

Gather all your materials. Print and cut out your template. You can get your free template from the member’s library by clicking here and entering your best email. Or if you are already a member click here and enter your password.

STEP 2

Place your template onto the cork sheet and draw around it with your sharpie. If your cork sheet won’t stay flat then I found the best way to flatten it is with an iron.

STEP 3

Keeping the template in position, use the sharpie to mark the features of Rudolph. Do this by holding the sharpie on the lines to allow the ink to seep through the paper and mark the cork.

STEP 4

Remove the template and join up the dots on the surface of the cork to make the features.

STEP 6

Use the antler templates to cut out two antlers using brown felt.

STEP 8

Begin securing the brown pom-poms to the cork with hot-glue, being sure to do the outline first and then filling in the middle. Leave a very small gap where the eyes will go. 

STEP 9

Next secure the outer edge of the red nose with hot-glue. 

STEP 10

While the outer edge of the red nose sets, secure the bottom edge of cream pom-poms as shown and add some cream pom-poms for the insides of the ears. Doing the outer edges and allowing them to cool will ensure the design retains a good shape whilst you fill in the middle.

STEP 11

Secure one white pom-pom in the upper right area of the nose (this will give Rudolph’s nose a little twinkle) and then fill in the lower area of the face with the cream or ivory pom-poms.

STEP 12

Once the outer edge of the red nose has fully set, fill in the rest of the nose with the red pom-poms as shown.

STEP 13

Secure the eyes by adding a drop of hot glue onto each of the black pom-poms and securing them individually… be sure to use tweezers to protect your fingers!
