A simple yet beautiful coaster made from cotton rope!

You will need:


Cotton rope -- I used simple clothesline

Hot glue gun



Here's a lovely cocktail idea to test out your coaster: Cucumber & Lime Crush

  1. Start by folding the end of the rope onto itself and hot glue it to secure.
  2. Begin to coil the rope onto itself and secure with a dab of hot glue along the way.
  3. Once your coil has reached about 4 inches, snip the cord and secure the end with a last dab of hot glue.


You can use any color rope or cord.  Check out your local hardware store, you may be surprised by all the options!
