I have such a fun, easy and so so useful diy for you today! Let’s make a handful of jute coasters! Only two things are needed to make these fun coasters… jute and hot glue! Jute coasters are attractive, organic and will be your go-to coasters! Even if you are not crafty you can do this diy! These thirsty coasters will save your furniture and look great doing it! So grab your hot glue gun and a length of jute roping and let’s get started!
Make a set for yourself and one as a gift!
I used about 4 feet of 3/8 inch jute for each coaster. I had a big spool of jute on hand. You can get it at your local hardware or craft store or on Amazon.
Start by rolling the jute in a circle gluing it as you go. You will have to hold the jute circle together until it dries in the beginning of your circle. After that you can clip it with a clothespin.
Don’t worry if you can see the hot glue (you will take care of hot glue later).
I made my coaster about 4 1/2 inches in diameter.
Hold a blow dryer, on the hottest setting, close to the coaster and let the glue melt into the jute. You might need to go over the hot glue with your finger to smooth it out. Be careful, it can be hot!
See, easy-peasy!!!! In just a hour or so you will have a new set of great organic coasters!
