DIY: Wool Thread Coasters

Everyone needs coasters in their household to protect the surface of a table when placing down a drink. This week’s DIY shows you how you can make quick and easy coasters that could be great for a gift to friends or just to personalize your home a little. Here’s how to make a weaved thread coaster!

What you need:

A thread needle (one that fits the thickness of wool)

A ball of wool

A piece of cardboard


Thin embroidery thread

Step one: Place the circumference of a cup onto a piece of cardboard, draw the circumference and cut it out. Around the edges make little slits with the scissors about half a cm apart. Using embroidery thread — or any kind of thin thread — start wrapping around the circle, making sure the thread gets caught in the slits.

Step two: Using the wool and needle, start weaving in and out of the thread horizontally.

Step three: When the full circle has been weaved, cut the threads at the back.

Step four: Knot all the loose threads together to secure, and there you have it – your own personalized coaster!

For JeanFontaine, the smallest things can spark an idea, such as the colors of a rusted copper penny. She keeps an eye on what’s hot in the eyes of fashionindustry bibles such as Vogue but doesn’t watch them too closely because she wants to set trends rather than follow them. JeanFontaine admires the work of designers such as Betsey Johnson, Alexander McQueen, and JeanPaul Gaultier but also draws her inspiration from closer to home.
