Beachy Summer Bathroom Makeover + FREE Bathroom Printable

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

So it’s going to be a LONG time before we really do anything permanent to the master bedroom or master bathroom. I’m still trying to decide exactly what I want to do in there so I’m just not prepared to make a commitment.

So until then, I’ve decided to create a few fun beachy home décor projects to brighten the space this summer… including a FREE printable just for you guys!

I also grabbed 3 glass vases, one glass pillar candle, a small candle, teal tart burner, 8×10 inch gold frame, and a basket. Total was less than $30.

And I’m guessing that this won’t last long in my bathroom… Ellie already wants to steal everything, especially the seashells and printable. Well she might just have to fight me for them. Don’t worry, I think I can take her.

DIY Rope Vase Centerpiece

I know not everyone crafts like a rockstar (including me), so I thought today I would share a great beginner project that anyone can do.

Yep, super simple and looks great as a centerpiece or end table décor. And you only need a couple supplies:

  • • glass vases from the Dollar Store or Goodwill
  • • sisal rope from local hardware store
  • • hot glue gun
  • • scissors

rope vase centerpiece suppliesTo begin, start hot glueing the rope to the base of the vase. To make sure you’re flush with the bottom of the vase and you won’t have any weird gaps or waves, place it on your table and check the placement of the first line before you continue gluing the rest (trust me on this).

DIY rope vase tutorialWhile gluing, keep pinching together the rope to avoid gaps. Use extra hot glue where needed.

Make sure you slightly overlap the top edge of the vase with the rope. Use a good amount of hot glue under the rope edge to finish off. Then trim any excess rope hairs.

Not bad… but it could use some bling.

DIY rope vaseI’ve had these little flowers in my craft room drawers for about 2 years. Guess it’s about time I used them. They’re from Michael’s and I got them on clearance for about $1.50 for the pair I think.

Especially for a project that cost just a couple bucks.
