Rope Wrapped Vases

Rope Wrapped Vases 6.1

I don’t like spending a lot of money when I can make a similar looking item for a fraction of the cost. A store that will go un-named is selling vases very similar to these for $45-$75, depending on the size. What?!

My vases were made for about $1.25 each. The vases were purchased at the dollar store and the rope at WalMart. Since the temperature has already been in the 100’s here, I thought it was about time I got busy on my Summer decor.

I started at the bottom using hot glue to attach the rope to the vase.

I wrapped the rope around the vase 6-7 times gluing it as I wrapped.

I broke the top of this bottle while we were moving but I really liked the shape and the measurements on the side so I wrapped the top of it with rope to hide the chip.

I haven’t decided what direction I’m going in my decorating yet but here are a few ideas.

Not bad for $2.50! I have a few more things to make and then I’ll be ready to decorate for Summer. Are you decorating for Summer yet?

    I’m pretty sure I know what un-named store you are talking about. 😉 My sister and saw some one day, and thought, we could make these! My sister was redoing her bedroom, and wanted some, so she did like you and made some. 🙂 Your jars turned out beautiful!! I like that you put the rope on the bottom and the top.

    That is such a neat idea. It’s so simple and looks great. I’ll have to do this with some plain bottles that I have. Thanks for sharing.

    What a cute way to display straws! And this looks like a simply project that I could actually finish.
