Rustic Mug Rugs

If you saw my post of the Little Tree Coasters last week, then you already know I have the heart eyes for all things Rustic! 


Well, Friday morning I woke up with the cutest idea in my head: Bear Skin Rug coaster!

While I was processing how I would make it look, another coaster idea popped in my head: Fur trimmed green square. I jumped right up and got to work!! 


But, while I was working on the bear, I thought “Well, I can’t have a rustic themed coaster set without a plaid square!”, so I originally scrapped the green square idea and replaced it with the plaid.

I took all of my photos of the Bear Skin Mug Rug and the Buffalo Plaid Mug Rug and felt sad that I hadn’t made the green square, so I added it in! And I am so glad I did, because I’m really in love with it.

Eventually I will replace the wooden button I used with a tree branch slice button, because that’s what I originally envisioned, but I couldn’t find any over the weekend (tear). Looks like I’ll be making some (my crafty self is not disappointed!)
