Hello everybody!

I hope you’re doing well!

Today I’m showing you how to make this super easy DIY coasters. They are really easy and cheap to make but I think they look very nice and would be great as a gift!

 

What you’ll need:

  • Thin Cardboard
  • Rope/thick wool
  • Glue

 

Step 1: Cutting the circles

Start with cutting circles of your prefered size out of the cardboard. I went for a radius of 4,5 centimetres.

 

Step 2: Glueing the middle

Make a little circle with your string and glue it to the middle of the cardboard

 

Step 3: Filling it up.

Slowly wrap the string around the middle, adding glue everytime you start a new round. You might have to use tape to keep the string down while it’s drying.

Step 4: Cutting off the excess

When it’s dry you can cut off the excess if necessary. With some strings, it’s really hard to get a perfect circle so you can just cut off the extra cardboard. It’s a lot easier with wool.

Step 5: Decorating

The coaster with the string had a little hole in the middle, so I decided to add a little bead which I think looks pretty cool.

And that’s it! They’re so easy to make and I think it would be so cute to make a set and give it to someone as a (Christmas) present.
