I’ve been noticing a new decor trend: ROPE! Rope-base table lamps (I own one), rope placemats and napkin rings, and even big rope-wrapped urn vases. I love the textured, modern and cheekily nautical look, but the price tag is often astronomical. Well, little old me was wandering down the aisles at Home Depot the other day, and I came upon a treasure trove of super cool-looking rope! It was less than ten dollars for a huge bundle– and thus was born the rope-wrapped vase DIY– rejoice!
YOU WILL NEED:
- Rope (I like the colored variations, but natural fiber is cool too)
- Hot glue gun + glue cartridges
- 1 glass receptacle (I used an empty glass milk bottle and a mason jar)
Begin at the base of the vase. Line up the rope horizontally at the base, and start winding it around the body slowly, gluing as you go. Make sure you are gently pulling the rope taught as you glue so that it is completely flush with the bottle. When you reach the top, wrap until it is glued around the mouth of bottle, then cut the rope with about two inches of a tail left. Angle this tail back down the side of the bottle vertically so it rests against the bottle and glue it in place.
