Nautical Coasters

how to make Nautical Coasters

Have you done any crafting this summer?  Any summer home decor?  I don’t go over the top for seasonal decorating but I like to incorporate a few things.  Usually that consist of adding some shells that I have collected on our beach vacations.

I think I have mentioned before how much I love collecting shells.  I have done it since I was a little girl and I still find it hard to pass by shells and not pick them up.

For this summer, I made these nautical coasters.  They are a fun addiction to my living room. I originally shared these over on Gina’s blog, The Shabby Creek Cottage, where I am a monthly contributor, BUT I wanted to share them with all my readers too!

I used terracotta pot saucers, sisal rope, felt and spray paint.

Use the felt to add to the bottom of the terracotta saucer.  This will protect your wood furniture from being scratched.

I traced out the felt with chalk, cut it out with scissors, then used hot glue to stick it on.

The sisal rope was cut to about 25 inches in length.  I used hot glue at the start then again at the end to hold it in place.

While the glue dried I held it down with some painters tape. Easy, right?

If you noticed in the supply picture I bought two different color of the terracotta saucers.  I did this because I knew I wanted to spray paint a couple of them.  The dark brown one’s cost a little bit more so I didn’t see any sense in buying them all brown if I was planning on painting them. Every penny counts!

I already had the spray paint at home that I knew I wanted to use.

Once the sisal rope was held tight I then hot glued it to the saucer. Voila, nautical coasters!
