Large wooden beads are the most suitable for making coasters. These can be simply made by stranding the beads together and gluing them on a piece of round felt. First you will have to determine the size of the coaster and cut out a piece of felt accordingly.

Allow the glue to dry out and you will have a nice coaster ready for your celebrations.
