Homemade Twine Coasters


Add a rustic touch to your fall kitchen décor with these Homemade Twine Coasters! Thick braided twine is the perfect material to help absorb liquid and protect your surfaces... plus, they'll add character and charm to any table and are simple to create for any number of guests.

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here's What You'll Need:

  • Twine
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue Sticks

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Cut six separate 8-ft. strands of twine. Knot them on one end and secure to a drawer handle, chair, or stationary post.
  2. Braid the strands in pairs of two, into one cord (see image #1).
  3. Once the strands are braided, begin to wrap the twine cord into a circle, securing each wrap with a bead of hot glue (see image #2).
  4. Once the achieved coaster size has been established, cut the braid and secure it with another bead of hot glue (see image #3).
  5. Allow the glue one minute to dry, then repeat the process to create a set of coasters.
  6. Place the twine coasters on your coffee table or kitchen table for both cold and hot beverages.
