Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love all things Easter – the colors go from muted whites, grays, and blues of winter to the pastels and florals of Spring. It’s such a happy transition, especially when living here in very gray Seattle.

Making these bunny coasters and setting them on your side tables is an easy way to add a little color and festive fun, but because they’re subtle, they work for all decor. Everyone will be asking where you bought them; watch their jaws drop when you tell them that you made them!

Tips For Making DIY Rope Coasters

  • If this is your first time making rope coasters, go slowly. The center swirl only takes a few minutes but starting it tightly is the key to the entire thing.
  • If you want to make the bunny coaster bigger, add more rope – just keep adding to the pieces. You can adjust the rope size also to make the bunny coasters bigger or smaller.
  • Raid your ribbon stash and use up those scraps. You have no limits on the ribbon other than to keep it to one piece for each year.
  • Pop a set of four of these cute rope coasters into a small wooden crate (also at the DT). Decoupage on a floral napkin and you’re done.
  • If you’d like, make a set and gift these this Spring to hostesses, family, and friends. A small Dollar Tree basket filled with these and a nice beverage would make for a quick and thoughtful gift.

How to Make Bunny Coasters with Dollar Tree Rope

I thought of this after I filmed everything, but if you would like, trace the completed bunny shaped coaster onto a piece of felt or thin cork sheet (at the Dollar Tree, as well). Cut it out just inside your trace line and hot glue it to the back of the bunny coaster for a nice, finished look.

You can make these adorable DIY bunny coasters from Dollar Tree supplies in about 30 minutes. Grab some rope, ribbon, and your glue gun.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Active Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Difficulty Easy


  • Nautical Rope ( at least 11 foot, if possible)
  • Ribbon (I used pink and lace burlap)


  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue sticks


  1. Cut the ribbon so that you have two 4-inch portions. You'll have four 4-inch sections, 2 for each coaster.
  2. Put glue on the long part of the rope and create a tight coil. Add the glue and keep wrapping the rope around until it's all be used.
  3. Once the coil is made, cut rope and form into ear shapes to affix to the back top of the coil, just off center.
  4. Glue the ribbon to the back of the ears so the pattern and color of ribbon show through to the front of the coaster.Six image collage of the steps to make a rope coaster in a bunny shape for Easter. Roll, size, cut, create ears, and back them with ribbon.


Optional: Use felt or cork to back the coasters.

Optional: Decorate a Dollar Tree wood crate and stack these inside to wrangle your rope coasters.
