Easy DIY: No Sew Ribbon Coasters or Trivets
Here’s a quick and easy ribbon coaster/trivet project that will make great gifts as well. Christmas will be here before we know it, so why not make some of these now and beat the rush?
Here’s all you need:
- May Arts Ribbon – at least 1” wide (I used May Arts Cotton Blend 2.5” 468-25-17 cut lengthwise into 1-1/4” strips)
- Soft Nylon Rope –I got mine at Lowes (25” long for coasters/48” long for an 8” trivet)
- Permanent Fabric Glue
- Binder clips or clamps for holding the ribbon
I already had the ribbon cut that was left over from the Ragamuffin Garland Challenge but this would be a great way to use up leftover ribbon scraps.
Here’s how to do it. Wrap the ribbon around the cord and secure with a bit of fabric glue. Place a clip over the end while you begin wrapping the cord. Run a bead of glue along the inside edge of the ribbon wrapped cording and begin coiling. Continue until the coaster or trivet is as big as you want it. Wrap and secure the end with more glue and that’s it!
Now, just bake something yummy and take it to the table in vintage style. Why not make one the next time you take dinner to a friend?
