About hot mug coasters
They have settled in the kitchen since the end of the last century. Now they are known as “mug coasters”, “hot coasters”, and at the time of their appearance they were called “coaster coasters”. This word means “beer cap” in German, as they were originally used as coasters for glasses so that the foam from the drink did not get on the tables.
The hot mug holder is one of those cute little things that will add a touch of coziness to any kitchen. They are not only decorative. Coasters are also used to protect the surface of the table from scratches and high temperatures.
This cute little thing is easy to create with your own hands. There are many advantages to this: firstly, you can make it in the desired design, and secondly, creating a stand will cost mere pennies.
First you need to decide on the design of the stand. The most popular theme for the kitchen, of course, is fruit. Coasters are made in the shape of strawberry, apple, etc. Soft and cozy material like felt can make your kitchen cozier and nicer. In addition, sewing such a product is a couple of trifles.
To make a felt coaster for a mug with your own hands in the form of an orange you will need:
- white and orange felt;
- sewing thread;
- pattern paper.
It will take about half an hour to make. In order to make a stand for a mug with your own hands, you first need to draw two circles on paper with a diameter of about 10 cm and 9 cm. Cut a circle of a larger diameter from orange felt, one that is smaller from white.
You can take other colors, and then you get a fantasy fruit. You also need to cut out triangles from orange felt. They should be sewn to the white circle with a seam “over the edge”, imitating the slices of the cuthalf an orange. Then you need to connect the two parts together. Do-it-yourself mug stand is ready!

Wooden Bead Stand
There are many other materials that can be used to make equally beautiful coasters. To work, you will need wooden beads and a strong thread. Yes, from the most ordinary balls you can make a real work of art. After all, a stand made of this material will look very beautiful.
The number of beads depends on their diameter. The smaller they are, the more you will need.
So, first you need to string the beads on a thread and close it into a ring. The resulting circle should be slightly larger than the bottom of the cup. Then from the beads you need to make another ring - a smaller one so that it fits inside the first one. If necessary, you can make another third circle, which will be smaller than the second. But here it all depends on the size of the beads - after all, sometimes two rings are enough. Next, you need to tie the resulting circles together with a thread so that their inner part does not fly out. This is how easy it is to make a stand for a mug with your own hands. This is a very simple and quick way to make it!
