You could use letter stickers for this project, or paint and a stencil.  I drilled a hole on each side of the coasters to loop a ribbon through.

This is a fun and easy little word swag I made with some silver coasters picked up (quite by accident) at the thrift store.  

Happy fall junkers.

chippingcharm writes: So lovely...since JMS, I don't even want to take out my old holiday decorations. I only want to use "junk style" decor this year. Guess I'm going to need to have a monster of a garage sale! Anyone feeling the same??? Laurel Posted: 7:53 pm on October 11th

crazymomluvsjunk writes: Another idea...if you don't have the rub on letters you could glue anagram letters (old game pieces) or scrabble pieces! You could also print them out on your computer...type in scary free fonts and there are some awesome ones out there! Posted: 8:58 pm on October 10th
