HUDSON BAY BLANKET INSPIRED COASTERS
I've always had a love affair with Hudson Bay point blankets. They are the striped blankets you see so often in vintage camp and cabin decor.
Unfortunately, my wallet does not allow me to have my own fun, colorful blanket, so I decided to mimic the Hudson Bay design on a set of coasters.

When you put your tape strips down, you can use a credit card to run over the edges to make sure the tape is firmly in place.
Now comes the fun part, painting your Hudson Bay colors.
After the paint has thoroughly dried, put a sealer on the coasters so any water condensation won't make your colors run.
