Party Coasters

This is an easy idea for party favors or a do it yourself gift. For one Halloween party, I made a bunch of coasters with previous guests in costumes. Everyone had fun looking at the costumes, then took theirs home as a favor.



  • Get some mouse pad type coasters or a kit like this.
  • Size your photos/design to fit, then print with iron on transfer paper.
  • Make sure to flip your image so it irons on correctly. This is especially important if your design contains text. 
  • Cut to size.
  • Iron on your image.
  • Let cool and trim extra around the edge.

What a coincidence!! When I was involved with MOPS about two centuries ago, we also did the stuffed pumpkin craft and to this day it is still part of my Halloween/Thanksgiving decor. I ended up buying other fabric pumpkins of varying sizes to place in a grouping on my dining room table.

I love the coaster idea!! I may have to use photos from one of our previous St Patrick’s Day parties and surprise the guests next year with their photos on coasters!
