As part of this month’s theme on natural living I get to share this easy-to-do rope coaster DIY tutorial. You can get totally creative with this, making use of various ropes and textures to achieve varied results. Making a set of 4, 6 or 8 can be a great gift for someone or just a great addition to your own decor.

Why not pop past your closest Builders Warehouse or Builders Express store and see what they have in stock for you to make this happen? You can browse over 10 000 products available at your nearest Builders store and add it to your basket but you can’t buy on-line yet – they’re at the final stages of setting the on-line store up, I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Cut the one end of the cord at an angle and put a drop of glue, using your glue gun on the end. Wait a few seconds for the glue to cool and spread it on the end to prevent the rope from fraying.
