"Rope and Home Decor"

Tie This Trend on for Size

It 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.

Next, I had to decide what I wanted to rope-ify. Lol!  Hmmm?  A quick stop at Dollar Tree led me to these simple glass vases. 

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!!!
