Ropes and sash cords have so many creative uses. Builders goes through the steps on 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.
