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– a rope vase.
Yep, super simple and looks great as a centerpiece or end table décor. And you only need a couple supplies to create your own rustic, rope vase:
• glass vases … Dollar Store or Goodwill
• sisal rope … found here
• hot glue gun … found here
To 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).
Add lines of hot glue working your way around the vase, working in small sections at a time. Instead of using little dots of glue, I decided to use full lines so this vase would last and the rope wouldn’t shift over time.
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 to shabby, right?
Especially for a project that cost just a couple bucks.
