Some good ideas 1


ROPE COASTERS

It takes not more than few touches to give your home a special feeling.Since they are inexpensive and easy to make you can have plenty of them to put all the drinks when you will be serving .Begin by preparing a carboard worksurface .Using a compass ,trace a circle about 4 inches in diameter onto a cardboard .Carefully coil the rope ,glueing as you go and secure with a pin every 3/4 inch .At the edge of the template cut the rope .Let it dry overnight .Remove pins and coat both sides with acrylic paint.I love making them specially when i use colourful ropes.
You dont need to spend your hard earned money on something that you can make at home.

Nice one. When you make something with your own hand you feel happy and proud as opposed to buying in a departmental store.

Hey I never thought it so easy to make something which is so personal yet so easy and less time consuming. Great idea.

Was trying to contact you on email but it bounced back. Suggest you to check 'Bog' in your 'About Me' which I think should be 'blog'. Thought point it this to you. I am sorry I have offended this. Feel free to delete this comment.
