Summer Decor with Rope

Thanks for Sharing!

Happy Monday friends!  There is something about rope that makes my mind wander to the sea.  I love adding that nautical element in my summer décor.  I thought it would be fun to look back at a few summer projects I’ve done using rope.

Domestically Speaking: Summer Decor with Rope

My rope cloche was made by trying a project I had pinned on Pinterest.  I used a grenadine bottle and tried the “nail polish remover and string lit on fire method” to cut the glass.

The result was fantastic.  I love how the rope cloche turned out.  So perfect to display little treasures.

The roped candlestick was so easy to make.  It started with a candlestick that I had scored for free in garage sale leftovers.  It had been spray painted, but was ready for a summer makeover.

I used hot glue to adhere the rope to the candlestick.  I love how the rope looks around the candlestick’s curves.

This next projects takes only rope and hot glue too.

The nautical rope coasters took less than 10 minutes to make and look perfect on my map side tables.

I hope these easy summer rope projects inspire you to get your summer décor on.

  1. I want to make some vases and cover a couple of lamps. My eyesight is very bad so I couldn’t see if there was a link to purchasing it. My local craft store doesn’t carry rope this thick. I live in the south metro area of Minnesota. Do you know where I can get some? My zip code is 55378

  2. Hi Maryann, I love your rope coasters. Simple yet very cute. I’m doing a roundup of some of my favorite decorating with rope ideas and would love to include this. Let me know if you have any concerns. I will provide links to all of the projects.

  3. Maryanne, I have tried cutting glass with a glass cutter. If you’ve tried that method, you know it is hit or miss and so you have to make sure you have plenty of bottles to use until you get one that comes out without cracking. I am definitely going to try this, for sure!!
