How to Make Rope Mat
It’s simple: all you have to do is start with a tight spiral and use your hot glue gun to hold the bracelet in place about every 3 inches or so.
My first step was to gather the supplies I needed:
1. Sisal rope (various sizes)
2. Styrofoam round
3. hot glue
4. Magnetic photo frame
Continue wrapping and gluing (make sure the string is on a flat surface) until the base of the string reaches a diameter of 14″ (35.5 cm).
Add the last drop of glue at the end point to hold it in place and voila!
I assume it takes about 5 minutes per placemat.

The only way to keep the charger from warping is to sew it in place. You should use clear thread, along the fishing line, and stitch in and out between the coils, and then back, to keep the shape of the charger.
I would suggest at least 4 rows of stitches from the outer edge, through the middle, to the opposite edge (and back to tie off), if you want the rope lining to lie flat.
Or you can make sure it’s not wet.
I love it – it adds texture and ambiance to the table, and it’s not expensive or time-consuming to make.
