Let's start with Nautical Rope Crafts. They are immensely popular and it's easy to see why. Rope has a great natural quality to it and is available in so many different variations that it goes with almost any decor style. Plus, it's a creative endeavour to incorporate utilitarian items such as rope into the decor!

Nautical DIY Coasters are made by Hi Friend Design. Rope coasters were taken a step further by creating a custom stencil and cranking up the color. Really pretty!
