Coaster Bases mine are thrifted white glass
Hemp rope or natural jute
2 glue sticks per coaster
Around 30 min to assemble supplies and complete 4 coasters
Ice sweating mixed drink to keep you invested in the final product
Start by running a string of glue around the outer part of the base.
Cut your rope at angle so that when you begin to overlap you will get a nice edge to butt the next layer against.
Every few inches bead the hot glue so that the rope will lay next to itself securely.
Continue this process till you get to the center and then cut the tail down to a manageable size.
Your cup is probably empty at this point so you should take a moment and make your self another drink...
Once you reach a center that is smaller than a dime you will cut the remanding tail to a half inch.
After this you can adjust the amount you will need to finish the inside by folding and wrapping until you find the right fit. Add a few more beads of glue and then tuck the tail and trim the execess. Remember to keep the rope as uniform as possible so that you have an even surface for cups to sit on.
Enjoy your 30 minutes of hard work and don't let anyone have a sweaty glass on your wood table top again. xoxo
