I have strange love for coasters! There’s just so many options (especially the DIY kind!) and they add a little bit of décor to your table! I currently have tile coasters that I made but Lady being a rambunctious pup typically knocks them off the table and I’m so afraid they’re going to break! So I made these diy simple twine coasters the other day!
I had a huge roll of twine leftover from our wedding that I was staring at in the craft closet and the idea hit me to make coasters out it! I already had all the supplies so a happy dance occurred (I love it when that happens)!
Here is what you’ll need: felt, twine, hot glue gun, scissors. THAT’S IT!
I found something that was circular and the size that I wanted the coasters to be. Then, I traced that onto the felt. I cut out the felt circles, folded them in half both ways to find the center, like so:
Just mark the point on the end which will become your center. Glue the end of the twine to your mark and slowly wrap the twine in a circle, gluing as you go until you finish it off (and if your like me you’ll burn your fingers… a lot).
I absolutely adore how they turned out and now my heart doesn’t stop if Lady knocks them on the floor!
So that’s all it takes to make these coasters! I told you it was simple!
Until next time,
