Hi Everyone! I hope you guys are having a great week. You all know by now that my husband is in the Navy. He tries to steer clear of anything Navy related in the house but I just can’t help myself; I love all kinds of nautical decor.
When we moved across the country a few months ago, my husband brought home some rope from Lowe’s to tie down our furniture in the truck (We moved ourselves this last time. Maybe I’ll share that fun story with you one day). It turned out to be sisal rope. We ended up having a lot left over that has just been sitting in the garage. I pulled it out a few weeks ago to hang my Uniform Rag Wreath because I thought it looked “nautical” and well I got it out again to play with it some more.
This is a super easy DIY project that only requires a glue gun, sisal rope, and if you want a stencil and paint.
Sisal rope comes in this huge roll. I think it costs around $5.00 for a whole roll. Knowing my husband, he just bought the least expensive rope he could find so I know it can’t be too pricey.
To make the coasters I coiled the rope tightly hot gluing them the whole way around. One great thing about these coasters is that you can make them as big or as little as you want.
For my stencil, I printed out this anchor graphic using my Silhouette Cameo but you could use any stencil you’d like. I think a monogram would be really cute too. To ensure the paint didn’t bleed under the stencil I used the same Mod Podge trick I used when I painted my DIY door mat. I allowed the Mod Podge to dry and used a small paint brush to paint one coat of black craft paint.
Once it was dry, I gently peeled off the vinyl. Project complete. What do you think of these Nautical Sisal Rope Coasters? Have you done any projects with sisal rope?
