Scented hot pad and coasters are easy and fun to make. Make these for any holiday or occasion by simply changing the fabric. These are not recommended for use with cold drinks.

Placing a hot beverage such as a hot cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, hot apple cider, etc. will activate and release the cinnamon scent. Similarly, placing a hot dish on the scented hot pad with help activate and release the cinnamon scent while also protecting your table from the heat of the dish.
