Quick Decorating Refresh: Sisal Rope Vase

Today I'm sharing with you a quick decorating refresh.

Sisal Rope Vase

If you are like me, you have a lot of random glass vases sitting around which aren't particularly beautiful but you keep them just the same.  I always feel bad about throwing away a vase that is perfectly good from the florists.  I have them in all shapes and sizes because “you just never know” when you might need that one.

I decided to try to upcycle a vase to give it a new look.  This is a simple DIY project which you can do in minutes.

I purchased sisal rope for a DIY thrift store basket makeover I did last winter and I had some leftover just waiting to be used for something.  The basket turned out so well and was super easy to do so I thought, “why not!”

3. Wrap and glue as you work your way up and around the vase.  Taking care to push each layer down to minimize any gaps between rows.

I love the summer vibe it gives off! I see this as an easy project with thrift store vases if you don't have any lying around already.  You can usually pick them up for around 50 cents.  I love the look so much, that I might just try it now on other things around my house.  Watch out.  🙂

Aren't these flowers just beautiful!!  These are one of several vases full of beautiful blooms I received in a Bloomsy Box.  I shared all about this great service in this post yesterday.

I hope your week is off to a great start!

  3. Looks great, and so simple! And from my experience with hot glue on glass, you could easily remove the rope if you get tired of it! thanks for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!
