How To Make Coasters From Twine/Rope
What is the standard size for a coaster base?
Standard coaster size is roughly 4 inches around. Use a drawing compass to make your circle pattern on paper. Or make it freehand.
For the base, you can either use felt or craft foam sheet, whichever you have available at home. Cut out a round shape from the base material. The size of the base should be slightly smaller than the size you would prefer for the coaster.
Hold the twine rope from its open end and create a twirl pattern with it. Apply glue in the center of the base cutout and place the twirled rope on the glued part of the base. You can also use hot glue for the quick craft.
Step – 3
Now apply glue and circle the rope around the center twirl, on the base. Continue to circle the rope around the center twirl until 2cm (0.7874 inches) of the base material remains around the outer side. Cut off the rope from the bundle and glue the open end with the base, adjacent to the last wrap.
Step – 4
Take the rope again without cutting it from the bundle. Form a loop and glue the open end of the loop on the remaining border of the base. Make sure to keep the open ends of the loop adjacent to the twirled rope (attached to the base).
Step – 5
Continue to create a loop and attached them around the 2cm (0.7874 inches) in the remaining border of the base.
Step – 6
Once the loop covers the entire border, keep enough rope to create the last loop and cut off the rope from the bundle.
Step – 7
Attach the open end of the last loop with the base and allow the glue to dry.
Tada! Now, you are ready to use your table coasters when they are dry!
