How to Make No-Sew Crafts

Coiled Coasters

This no-sew craft for kids creates a coiled coaster. Despite their softness, these coiled coasters are remarkably sturdy, which means that you'll get to enjoy your kids' creations for years to come.

What You'll Need:

  • Clothesline cord
  • Blunt scissors
  • Tape measure
  • 1-3/4 yards of fabric
  • Fabric glue

Step 1: Cut four 54-inch pieces of clothesline cord. Cut four 1x54-inch strips of fabric.

Step 2: Wrap a fabric strip around one 54-inch piece of clothesline. Dot some glue along the rope to hold it. Once you reach the end of the cord, glue the end of the fabric strip in place.

Step 3: Start a small coil of the covered cord and use fabric glue to hold it together. Continue coiling the cord around itself. Put glue on the cord as you coil it. When you get to the end, tuck it in between the last coil.

Step 4: Add a dab of glue to secure it. Let it dry overnight. Repeat to make 3 more coasters.
