DIY Coastal Rope Coasters
This project came out better then I envisioned!
What is so great about it, is if you want to make a placemat, you just keep wrapping the rope! For this though, I wanted coasters.
DAP RapidFuse All-Purpose Adhesive
HOMYHOME Jute Rope 10mm
Pair of Gloves
Tape Measure or Ruler
NOTE: I tried using a hot glue at first. It did not hold the rope together.
For your first coaster measure out your Jute Rope.
Each coaster size is 3 ft 9 in in rope length.
When cutting the rope, cut it at a angle.
The ends of your Jute rope will easily be frayed. You will need to glue the ends together so this does not happen.
NOTE: Make sure you are wearing hand protection when handling / using the glue. It is VERY strong holding and you do not want to get it on your skin or other items.
Continue STEP 3:
Put glue one the tips of each ends. You will be creating aglet's on the ends with the glue.
After your ends are fully dry, you will start your coaster.
Apply more glue, but now to the sides that will be touching.
In a 'U' shape glue the first piece of your coater together to start your loops.
Now slowly start to make the loops. Make sure you are putting the glue along side the rope. DO NOT skip a spot of the rope or you coaster will come apart.
After every inch stop and apply pressure to the rope, squeezing it together for the glue to hold.
This was the reason why I picked the DAP RapidFuse All-Purpose Adhesive, was for the fast drying time.
If you have any spots that are showing gaps for do not look fully secure, you can put a little glue on the top or bottom of the coaster.
Repeat Step 5 and repeating Step 6:
You repeat STEP 5 and 6 tell you reach the end of your Jute Rope, creating your coaster!
