You've decided to organise the ultimate urban chic French apéro. That really is une idée géniale! Is everything set? Fun people? Check. Festive drinks? Check. Coasters? Oh no - forgot about those. No problem. With this easy DIY craft project you can make them yourself - with a plant twist, obviously.
How to make these botanical coasters
Gather stems or leaves from your favourite plant and dry them in a flower press, or use a thick book. Whilst the attractive foliage dries, seek out a set of nice vintage glass coasters with a raised edge in the attic, at a flea market or in a second-hand shop. Check the stems or leaves after a week: are they nice and flat? Stick them onto the coasters with a small drop of glue, place a plastic disc cut to size over the top and voilà: let the apéro begin.
If you’re proud of the result, share your creations on Instagram and don’t forget to tag them with #aperobotanico.
