Sisal Rope Coasters – Easy Nautical DIY Tutorial

I’m sharing a fun and easy way to bring some nautical decor into your home today.

DIY Nautical Sisal Rope Coasters.

If you’ve been around here awhile then you know by now that I have a love for nautical decor. It makes appearances all throughout my house.

This is a super easy DIY project that only requires a glue gun, sisal rope, and if you want a stencil and paint. Ready?

Sisal rope comes in this huge roll. I think it costs around $5.00 for a whole roll. Another reason why I love it, it makes a very inexpensive project!

To make the sisal rope 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 small as you want.

The anchor stencil for the nautical sisal rope coasters was created 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.
