This holiday coaster project gives a lot of creative inspiration! If you don't want to use tiles, you could use plain saucers or mismatched coasters found at a resale shop and remake them to your own specifications. If you do use tiles, I think you may want to add some little felt parts, or even cover the bottom with felt completely so that table surfaces do not get scratched. These would make nice hostess gifts, thanks for sharing!
