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
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.
