Today I am sharing something cute and simple that will add the perfect crafter vibe to your home or office or even make the cutest gift!

I love seeing handmade things displayed in homes! Quilts, hand stitched pillows, doilies and even seeing a meal made with love are all beautiful expressions of “home”. There is something special that happens in our hearts when we make something for others to take joy in.

These little crochet flower coasters are the perfect thing to display on your coffee table! They will show your family and friends that you made something special just for them to enjoy!

You can make these in endless colors! Muted, brights, multi colored; whatever you would like that screams you!

I made them in a very classic color. HOT PINK! One thing you will soon know about me…. if you haven’t notice already…. I’m a huge fan of the color pink!
