Ahoy! DIY Nautical Rope Coasters

Ahoy, mateys! We’re on a nautical kick these days…could be that spring is on its way. Could be Aleah’s new gold Sperry Topsiders, perhaps? Nonetheless, you know we’re happiest on the coast and lovers of the smell of the salty sea. Today’s DIY project is just perfect for those who share this passion. Nautical Rope Coasters.

Remember our Italian Ruscus Leafy Coasters during the holidays? This is based on the same premise using juice can lids. Pretty brilliant, if we do say so ourselves! :) The cost per lid is under $1 each, but they look like you poured your heart and soul into them or snatched them up from a high-end coastal living shop.

For this project you need: juice lids {from frozen juice cans} | thin nautical rope {from the craft store sold by the yard} | hot glue | scissors

Step 1: remove as much paper as you can from the juice lids. Dollop a big bead of hot glue in the center of the lid.

 

Step 3: wind your rope around and around the lid, gluing as you go in a circular motion.

Step 4: Glue down the end of the rope so that it sits fluid with the edge of the lid and snip with scissors. You could burn the edges so that it doesn’t fray if you have a plastic rope, but gluing works well.

Repeat with other types of rope to create a variety of nautical goodness.

There you have it! Who wouldn’t love to receive a quartet of these for their nautical home or for a summertime hostess gift?

    For the lids, you could also use the tops of mason jars. I am always throwing those things away…this would be a great, new use for them (as opposed to the trash can). Cute project! It’s very Valley & Co with the cute nautical theme :)
