A little Diy for you today! And it’s really easy too, I barely have to tell you how to make these Coiled Rope Placemats. They look so good when done though and everyone will be asking where you got them!
I must admit that these took a lot more rope than I originally imagined! You need at least 10 meters of rope per placemat for it to be visible around the edge of your dinner plate. Here is what I used to make these.
Like I said before I don’t really need to give step by step instructions, this diy is pretty self explanatory. Get your 10 meter length of rope and start to coil it. Using the glue gun add a small amount of glue to the outside edge of the rope, then coil. Keep doing this in small sections being careful not to let the glue be visible from the top.
Keep coiling until you get to the end of your 10 metre length, work on a flat surface to ensure your mat lays flat. Also I got a lot of glue on my counter so make sure you put something, like a board, down to protect your surfaces.
When you get to the end, turn the mat over to the ‘wrong’ side and fray the end of the rope a little so you can stick it down.
Doing this will make sure the ‘right’ side of your placemat looks neat but it will still lie flat on the table. The last optional step is to glue a circle of felt to the base of the placemat. Mine didn’t really need it for stability but it gives the placemat a professional, finished look.
