Create Your Own Nautical Rope Coasters

Item # X-HT-300026
Rope coasters for inside or outside your home or boat

Are you a stickler for coasters? Coasters are great for protecting furniture from watermarks and they can also be a small, fun way to accent your décor. For our Outdoor Dining Area Makeover we made these simple rope coasters to be a little nod to our love of all things nautical. These coasters can be used indoors and out and are a great project for DIYers of all skill levels. We used manila rope for our coasters to give them a more rustic style, but you can use other types of rope too for different looks. To re-create these coasters for your home or boat you only need a few materials and five to 10 minutes! Let’s take a look at how it’s done.

Materials List:

    Rope coaster materials.
  • Manila Twisted Rope #562911

  • Glue Gun #103684

How to Make Rope Coasters

1. Place a bead of hot glue in the center of your lid and glue one end of the rope in place.

Glue the rope to the center of your canning lid.

2. Curl the rope tightly around itself and spiral it out away from the center, hot gluing as you go.

Curl the rope in a spiral out from the center.

3. When you reach the edge of the lid, cut your rope and hot glue the ends to the side of the rope adjacent to it. This will keep the rope from fraying.
