Why not start off your day with some Disney magic? Chances are you probably have lots of Disney coffee mugs to use every morning. But do you have any Mickey Mouse coasters?

So while you are counting down the days until your next Disney vacation or Disney cruise, or reminiscing about your recent trip, these farmhouse-style Mickey coasters are the perfect homemade souvenirs.

Want to make Minnie Mouse coasters instead? Simply glue a small bow in between the ears. Be careful to glue to the top of the head, though, so that the knot of the ribbon doesn’t sit underneath the coffee mug. Otherwise it can tip over.

Materials

  • 2 packs of Dollar Tree nautical jute rope

Tools

  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. To make a set of 4 coasters, cut four 24-inch pieces of jute rope. Cut eight 8-inch pieces of rope, as well. cutting a piece of jute rope
  2. Apply a line of hot glue on one section of a 24-inch section of rope. Do not apply to the entire piece of rope all at once, because the glue could dry by the time you get to the end. line of hot glue on a piece of jute rope
  3. On a flat surface, start to curl the rope around itself. Make a small circle in the middle that is tight with no gaps, then continue to curl the jute roper around that, making a bigger circle. Add hot glue to the section that you are ready to glue together. Repeat the process for all four Mickey heads. gluing nautical rope in a tight circle with hot glue jute rope coiled into a circle

Notes

I bought two packs of the rope (8 feet each) and I had plenty of rope leftover after this project.
