DIY Boho Inspired Coaster

If you’re looking for a fun and easy little DIY project, then these Boho-inspired rope coasters are perfect for you!  You need very few supplies, about 20 minutes of your time and you have the cutest little coaster to use around your home.
I’ll admit, I have been in a huge funk and not motivated to make much of anything lately.  My emotions have been all over the place since my mom’s passing and I have been completely overwhelmed and stressed with the closing of her estate, it has become my full-time job and it’s hard on every level imaginable.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m honored to be handling this for her but I get why people hire out.  I think I will be more at peace when we have her celebration of life later this month and I can have closure.

 Macramé Cord 4mm (I found mine at Michael’s)
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Fabric spray sealer
Cork or Fabric
Atsko Silicone Water-Guard 10.5


Artist’s paintbrush
Black Craft Paint


NOTE: BE CAREFUL with the hot glue, I used the tip of a pen cap when securing the rope to the glue.  You could also wear gloves

Cut your fabric into the desired size of your coaster, most are 4 inches wide.

Add a small amount of hot glue to the center of your fabric.

Take one end of your rope, begin rolling it inward onto itself to form the center of a circle. Glue this in place on top of your fabric or cork.

Continue adding glue along the side of the rope, coiling as you go,  then hold your rope down and wait for 20 seconds or so to let it set.

Continue this process until your fabric is completely covered.

When you are done, simply cut the end off on an angle so that the last bit does not bulge out. Glue the end to the side of the coaster.

Tip: In order to prevent the edge from fraying, add a bit of hot glue to it. This will harden and thus prevent any fraying.


To get more of the Boho look you can tape off a portion of the coaster and add some black paint in a pattern of your choice.

Seal if desired

So simple and fun!

although I can’t stand the power lines behind our house that we fought the city on, the sunsets have been incredible and our grapes are going crazy!

Thank you so much for stopping in today, I hope you will give this project a try!
