If you’re lucky enough to live by the sea, you might be a fan of nautical decor. This fun and carefree theme usually involves a combination of anchor art, navy accents, and definitely elements that feature rope. This DIY is for the sailors at heart and nautically-inclined.

2. Glue the ends of the coaster so they do not fray.
