Supplies for Your DIY Coasters

To create these rustic jute coasters, you’ll need:

  • Felt
  • Jute twine
  • Hot glue gun

These DIY drink coasters are not only so simple to make, you also probably already have everything you need to make them at home! So, grab your supplies and start braiding!

How to Make DIY Drink Coasters

To make your own DIY drink coasters, you should start by cutting felt for the bottom of the braided jute coasters. Use a small bowl or large cup to trace a circle around a piece of felt, then cut out around the outline. Felt is a great choice for the backing of your drink coasters because it helps keeps the coasters from slipping when they’re sitting on a smooth surface.

When you have your felt cut and ready to go, it’s time to start prepping your jute twine. You’ll need three very long pieces of twine to make a braided jute coaster. I suggest cutting your twine around four feet long. It’s better to cut your twine too long than too short. YOu can always trim the ends off your twine, but it’s hard to add to the twine once it’s cut.

Tie a knot on the end of the three pieces of twine to secure them together, then start braiding. As you’re braiding, you’ll probably notice that the twine will start to knot up if you’re not careful. After braiding a few passes, take a second to run your fingers through the length of twine. This will help prevent knots and keep your twine from tangling as you braid. Just keep doing this process (braiding and untangling) until the twine is braided about halfway down the length of twine.

When you’ve braided half of your twine, use the hot glue gun to glue the knot at the end of your braid in place. Trim off the ends as close to the knot as possible.

Then, start wrapping your braid around the knot to create your DIY jute coaster. Add glue under the braid as you wrap to secure it in place. Continue gluing and wrapping until you’ve reached the end of your braid. Then, braid some more and start wrapping again.

Keep braiding, wrapping, and gluing until you have reached the edge of your felt.

Once you’re at the end of your felt, you can tie a knot in the end of your twine. Trim the end of the twine off as close to the knot as you can, then fold the knot under the last layer of braid and secure it in place with glue.

Finish your DIY coasters by trimming any excess felt you can see from the edge of the coaster. And that’s it! See how simple these farmhouse coasters are to make?! These rustic DIY braided jute coasters will look so great with the rest of your farmhouse decor!

    Love this idea! I do have a question: If you use as a coaster for a hot coffee cup, will the heat melt the glue?

    1. I haven’t had any issues with the glue, Christine. I think since it’s under the jute, the heat doesn’t really affect it!

  8. Nice guide! Have you tried to sew jute coasters instead of gluing them on paper? Should be more reliable. You can also dye the rope with natural colorants (or any textile colorant will do the job even easier). Cheers, Anna.

    1. That’s a great idea, Anna! I’m not much of a seamstress, but I bet it wouldn’t be difficult to sew the braided jute onto the felt.
