Tie This Trend on for SizeIt seems that rope is a big trend in home décor right now. With good reason, since rope has a natural quality and adds instant texture. It also evokes a very casual feel. From lamp bases to plate chargers, these days I'm seeing it everywhere.

I decided to hop on the trend bandwagon, but with budget in mind of course. I started by picking up a bag of rope for less than $6 at Home Depot. I intended to get the kind that they cut by the yard, but they had a pre-packaged option that was PERFECT.
Side note: If you're in Charlotte, you must check out the Dollar Tree on Freedom Drive. Wow! Seriously, the biggest location I've ever seen. I digress.
Armed with my $1 vases, a hot glue gun, scissors and rope.....
... I began to glue the rope around the base of the vase.
You really only need a shot of glue every couple of inches. Wrap until you've reached the desired height on your vessel. Then, cut the rope and adhere the end with a final shot of glue. The addition of a small pillar candle was all that was needed to finish off this super cheap and super easy DIY project.
Not sure if this will be their final resting place, but I do love the look for Spring and Summer.
Bye- bye pine cones, hello rope.
Happy Good Friday Eve!!!
