I was dying to hot glue something...and I had this plain coaster...it's from Wal-Mart, where they're 6 for 97 cents, check the cooking section...and I had some fake flowers and I thought to myself, Hmm, why not?? and sooo...I give you...a blooming coaster...

Very cute Smiley

These would be swanky for tiki theme barbecues and outdoor parties.

Thanks!!  Grin

Yeah, they would look really cute at a luau or something, and people could even take them home as souvenirs!

I'm going to make some for my friends for Christmas gifts. hehe

Do the flower stems mess up the balance of the glass?  Could you take an "arial-type" picture w/o the glass?

I will take a picture soon, but no, they really don't.  The flowers get permanently smooshed down by the weight of the glass after only a few uses, so then they're flat on the bottom.

Those are great! I might "borrow" your idea for the cookout I'm having this weekend. Smiley
