I decorated a plain jane box for a craft swap a few months ago using leaves, paints and a hefty dose of sharpie marker. It really matched my house - and would be perfect to put coasters in. I guess i'll have to make a new one when we get some more leaves.
I am in love with felt and because I just didn't have enough to do this past month (pshh) I decided to whip up this guy for my daughter. He can stand on his own and he took me foreeeeveeeerrrrr. I'd say he's just about a foot high.
