DIY ~ Nautical Coasters

We are having a huge festival with a whole bunch of Tall Ships this weekend to celebrate the opening of our new waterfront in town.
The market is open all weekend, so I am trying to whip up some nautical stuff for the boaters out there :)
Thick rope
hot glue gun
black paint
mini paint brush

First take the end of your rope and start coiling it.
Use glue right on the tip so when you make your first fold in it sticks well right away.

Keep coiling and gluing the edge as you go...

Using black paint and a small paint brush, draw on your anchors.

I made sets of 4 and wrapped them up with twine to sell!
Now I want a pair!!!
