How to make coasters

Ropes and sash cords have so many creative uses. Here’s how to make coasters.

You will need:
• Hot glue gun
• Glue sticks
• 2m Sash cord (5mm diam)
• Scissors

Step 1
Cut the one end of the cord at an angle and put a drop of glue on the end. Wait a few seconds for the glue to cool and spread it on the end to prevent the rope from fraying.
Step 2
Put another drop of glue on the same end and fold it over onto the cord to start a coil. Keep on putting a thin stripe of glue on the cord and carry on rolling the rope in a coil.
Step 3
When you get to the size you want, cut the cord at an angle. Put a drop of glue on the end to prevent fraying and to secure it to the coil.
