DIY Nautical Rope Coaster

DIY Nautical Rope CoasterRecently I was strolling through a department store and saw a perfectly overpriced nautical rope coaster. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was my next DIY.  So,I headed to my neighborhood Michael’s and picked up a few products to make my very own Nautical Rope Coaster Set.


W H A T   Y O U   N E E D :

  • 2 Round Ceramic Coasters
  • Mod Podge
  • Rope {contrasting colors if you choose}
  • Tacky Glue
  • Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Scissors
