Bead drink guard

We made these colourful drink guards / coasters with beads. You can either draw out your pattern first and then place the piece of paper under the pegboard to follow it or you can just do it freehand. When your design is ready to go, heat an iron to medium heat, place a sheet of baking paper over the beads and iron gently until the beads fuse together. Remember to remove one or more beads to make a straw hole before using the iron. Not only will these guards keep insects and leaves out of your drink, but they also double as coasters!
