Or you could....

Just stick some glue on a base, then 'dip' the base into a saucer/plate of beads then flatten off with your hand/cloth.

Or if you feeling really adventurous, you could bead embroider some Very Happy

eeek that looks like a bit too fiddly work for my manky hands especially at the moment they are a tad too sore to use for this sort of stuff ,i might get the supplies in and then save it for my boat trips to while away the cold winetr nights with.
thanks tina and carole for the posts

They sound nice. Good idea Kim. The martha Stewart ones look
nice but sound a bit complicated. Now Carol's suggestion sounds right
up my street.

I'll leave that advice to Carole!

Been meaning to make coasters in my kiln for about a year (was going to do them as C*******mas pressies last year)...must get around to it someday.

The resin coasters are cool too, been meaning to read up on resin, so i could make some pendants etc, but im not sure what you need to mix it all up, but i do know someone who uses it often, i could ask for you Very Happy that way, they will be totally wipeable ;o)

You could just string one long sting of beads and then stick it on a coaster in a spiral fashion!!!! Simple, but might work.

that was the image I got. thought thats what the site was going to show, you could do a string of each colour and wind them side byside.

Seed beads often come in hanks, Kim.
