DIY Rope Coasters

During the summer I love nautical elements… so I thought adding some nautical elements to my family room would be perfect.

How to Make Rope Coasters

With my favorite crafting tool, my glue gun, I created some rope coasters.

They look perfect on my mapped tables.

Start by using your hot glue to create the center of your coaster. Twist the rope around, adding hot glue every few inches to keep the rope attached as you’re creating the coaster.

You can make them as big or small as you’d like.

Simple, beachy and they took less than 10 minutes to make all 4.

Of course, my son thinks they’re better used as frisbees… gotta love boys!

Coaster Tip

My only recommendation is that you use a rope that isn’t scratchy.  This rope is very soft to the touch.  You don’t want something that could scratch up your glass or wood.  If you used a scratchy rope you could cut out some cork and adhere it to the base to protect your surfaces.

  1. These are great!! I’m SO loving the nautical look right now, maybe because I’m desperate for spring?! And I just bought nautical rope, so when I ran across your coasters I was so excited! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. These look great. My only question is about the condensation from the glasses. How well do the coasters absorb that or do they?

    1. Great question HM. I’ve only used them for 2 days now… but they’ve been hot days where I loaded my water with ice and they absorbed the moisture perfectly. I think it would depend on the type of rope you pick too.
