I wanted some nice coasters to put in my home office. And these easy braided jute coasters brought a bit of summer farmhouse charm that I just can’t help but love!
Braided Jute Coasters
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have been spending a ton of time lately in the ‘ole home office. It’s crazy busy around here and I’ve been taking my morning coffee in with me…long story, I needed a coaster or four. And because I love coastal farmhouse decor and just farmhouse decor in general, I came up with these easy braided jute coasters.
They’re simple, great at catching the condensation drips and keeping my office from becoming a landing zone for miniature helicopters (you know, with the circles of dried coffee on the desk–ewww). So, if you’re ready to make a quick rolled twine coaster set to put in your home office, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Easy Rolled Twine Coasters
- Use as little hot glue as you can manage. You definitely want to make sure you’re gluing everything in place, but if you have any hot glue that squeezes out through the twine, it’s going to be hard to clean up.
- Use a dark colored felt as you backing. If you use something light, it’s liable to get dirty or just look weird in the edge around the jute coaster. So, choose something that compliments the jute.
- When you’re selecting your jute twine, be sure to pick something thin and flexible. The thicker stuff is great, but for this application, having something thin is best. That way you’re not fighting it the entire time you’re working with it.
How Do I Make Braided Jute Coasters?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Small Amount of Craft Felt
- Jute Twine
- Hot glue gun
- Small bowl or cup
- Trace the upturned bowl with a pen onto the felt, then cut out the circle of felt and set aside.
- Cut three pieces of jute twine about five-foot long. Even the ends of the twine and tie a knot to hold them together.
- Braid the entire length of the three pieces of twine together, then knot the end to secure it.
- Trim one end of the twine at the end of the knot as closely as possible. Glue the knot to the felt circle in the center.
- Working carefully, wrap the braided twine around the knot, gluing the jute in place as you go, forming a spiral. Wrap and glue the twine in place until the circle is completely covered.
- Trim excess twine, tuck the end under the last round of the spiral and glue in place.
- Trim any excess felt around the coaster edge and enjoy!
