DIY Coaster Made From Twine And Felt

Create your own unique coaster by combining twine and felt in a fun and creative DIY project. Start by cutting a piece of felt into your desired shape and size for the coaster. Then, take a length of twine and begin wrapping it around the edges of the felt, securing it in place with glue as you go. You can experiment with different patterns and designs to make your coaster truly one-of-a-kind. This DIY twine and felt coaster is not only a practical addition to your home decor, but also a fun and relaxing craft to work on. You can customize the colors of the felt and twine to match your existing decor or create a set of coasters in a variety of colors for a more eclectic look. Whether you're making these coasters for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for a friend, this project is sure to bring a touch of handmade charm to any space.

Supplies Needed:

  • Craft Felt (used brown)
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
  • School Glue
  • Scissors
  • Twine or Soft Rope
  • Marker or Pen
  • Jar or Glass (used to trace rings on the felt)

The first thing you need to do is lay the felt flat. Place the jar or glass on the felt and trace a round outline. Do that for each coaster you will be making.

Next, using the scissors, cut each of those circles you just made out of the felt.

Now using the hot glue put a small dot of glue at the out edge of the felt circle. Push the end of the twine on the glue to hold it in place. Slowly work your way around the outer edge of the felt with the twine hot gluing it in place as you go.

After you have made it all the way around, you can start using the school glue. Keep wrapping the twine around until you get to the middle. The reason I change over to school glue is that I think it is less seen then the hot glue, but the hot glue works nicely to get things started.

When you get to the center, you can use another dot of hot glue to hold the end in place and cut the twine. After that, I went over the whole thing with an extra cover of school glue over the twine. Yes, it will look white at first but will dry clear. I just found this extra step held things in place nicely.

Allow to fully dry and then you can use and display your new coasters! Make as many or as few of them as you want.
