DIY steps for Macramé coasters

DIY Macramé Coasters

When it comes to making your home's interior look its best, every little decor element counts. In this DIY post, I'm going to show you how to make macramé coasters. The coaster DIY design (inspired by Pinterest pins ☺️) that I am sharing here is decorative as well as utilitarian.

Follow the steps below and let out your inner go-getter DIYer spirit!

1) Items you’ll be needing

For making macramé coasters, you just need three items, macramé cords, a pair of scissors, and a comb. Take one long macramé cord and cut it with a measurement of 152 cm. You’ll also need to cut 5 shorter macramé cords that measure 75 cm each. Make sure to keep extra macramé cords.

2) It all starts with a loop

Take one end of the 152 cm long anchor cord and make a small circle-like loop. The next step is to take the shorter 75 cm long macramé cord and tie it to the loop using a cow hitch knot (similar to lark’s head knot).

3) Complete the loop and secure it

Tie the remaining 4 75 cm long macramé cords using the cow hitch knot. After you’re done, gently pull the longer end of the 152 cm long anchor cord to close the loop. With 5 cow hitch knots in place, the closed loop should look like a little flower.

4) Make spiral loops

The next step is to make spiral loops with the anchor and shorter cords. Spread out the anchor and shorter cords so that you don’t get confused. Take the shorter cord that’s closest to the anchor cord and tie over it. Repeat this process with the same cord to tighten it with the anchor cord twice.

5) Tie all shorter cords with the anchor cord

Repeat the steps I’ve mentioned in point 4. Tie the remaining 4 shorter cords with the anchor cord to make spiral loops.

6) Fill the spiral loop gaps

After you’re done tying all 4 shorter cords, there may be a gap. To fill the gap, take the extra macramé cord and cut two strings out of it that measure less than 75 cm. Tie the two-extra cord to the anchor cord using the cow hitch knot.

7) Continue with the previous step

Once the gaps are filled, continue tying all the shorter cord (including the extra cords) to the anchor cord. After making 4 to 5 spirals, your coaster will take the perfect circle shape.

8) Give the coaster its final look

Secure the anchor cord by pushing its free end in and out of the spiral. Once it gets through, pull the cord from below and secure it by tying a knot. The final step is to brush the loose ends using a comb and trim them.
