Today I thought I would share some cute little nautical coasters that I DIY'd a couple of weeks ago. I don't know about you but we are constantly needing to replace the coasters at our house. So this time around I decided to make my own instead of paying so much money for anything that was cute or decorative. Since I have a coastal/beachy theme decor I decided to make some nautical ones this time around.
I think these turned out so cute and they definitely fit into our coastal decor. These are very simple to make but do take some time since I had six in my set to do. So lets get on with the steps.
You will need these supplies to make the twine side:
Glue gun and glue sticks
A round wooden form for each coaster. I used a set that Kaiser Craft makes for scrapbookers but you could easily cut your own from thin plywood if you so desired
When you reach the center cut the twine and work the tail down into the center so it does not show. It will look like the above picture.
On the backside I just painted the disc with a blue craft paint and then stenciled a little sailboat on each coaster. This particular set had a base that holds each coaster upright (you can see it in the picture below) so I just painted it with the same blue craft paint. You can then use mod podge to seal the paint so it doesn't peel or crack if it gets wet.
When you are done you have a cute little set of coasters with twine on one side and a stenciled sailboat on the other that can be used in a coastal, beachy or nautical decor. These will look much better in the family room than all the miss matched ones we have right now.
Do you seem to accumulate lots of mismatched coasters or does this just happen at our house? Tell me about it in the comments below.
