DIY Rope Coasters the perfect hostess gift for the holidays tutorial at #LowesCreator

How many gifts do you have to buy this year?  How many gifts would you like to purchase and maybe you just don’t have the time/money.  I always want to get something for everyone…especially when someone hosts a party or something.  I mean, yes, I could show up with a poinsetta, but how many can you really have you in your home?  Why not something a little more useful?  As a part of the Lowe’s Creative Ideas team, I was asked to come up with an easy DIY hostess gift.  My mind was jumping with ideas.  I wanted something useful, easy to make and inexpensive.  Something anyone could use.  Then it hit me….everyone needs coasters!

I created these really simple rope coasters with only two items….rope and glue.  Okay, so you’ll need a pair of scissors to cut the rope, but that’s a given, right?  You can create these in just a few minutes and tied together with some pretty ribbon makes them a great gift!  Here’s all you need:

  • Rope (get creative there are different colors, sizes, materials)
  • Glue (I used hot glue because it holds it quickly)
  • Scissors


Take the end of your rope and place a small dab of glue.  Fold the end in and begin to create a circle.  About an inch at a time, place a small line of glue and then attach to the circle.  Keep going around until you make your coaster the size you’d like.  Cut the rope off and glue the end.  I like to place another dab of glue onto the end of the rope itself to help prevent fraying.
