Spools of rope can bring a touch of coastal or farmhouse charm to a table top. Create rope drink coasters by unfurling rope from spools, then coating it with acrylic sealer. Grab a pencil and begin to wrap it with the acrylic covered rope until the diameter is approximately 3 inches wide. Protect the bottom and keep it reinforced by cutting a sheet of cork to size, then attaching it to the rope coaster with hot glue.
Put a fresh spin on traditional garland by creating a handmade sisal and bell garland. Slide bells onto sisal rope, spacing them about four inches apart, and secure in place with contrasting rope or twine.
