One of Lauren’s favorite elements from her baby boy’s nautical theme nursery is a rope chandelier she created from a thrift store find. Lauren shares at From Our Hiding Place how she transformed the $10 chandy into an eye-catching piece with just a roll of twine and a hot glue gun. While time-consuming, Lauren says it was the “easiest DIY project ever.”

Thrifty Wire and Rope Baskets

Jennifer from Decorated Chaos is a “thrifty chic” in everything that she does. This is especially true when it comes to organization since Jennifer sure doesn’t want her baskets and bins to cost more than the items inside. When Jennifer saw some wire baskets that were full of style and versatility, she knew she had everything she needed to make her own sitting right in the garage. Thrifted wire baskets? Yep. Spray paint? Sure thing. Rope? You betcha. Jennifer says, “I love when it all comes together easily. Good style awaits you, just head out to your garage!”

Decorative Rope Spool

While looking through the Ballard catalog, Jen from Life, Crafts, & Whatever couldn’t help but notice the rope spool side table. However, the price and nautical vibe just weren’t agreeing with her budget and style. Jen instead created a Mini Me version using wood plaques and a paper mache cylinder. At seven inches tall, it looks super cute sitting outside Jen’s bedroom door!

Round Rope Mirror

Gina from Our Impeccably Perfect Life decided to follow the rope trend and make over a “gold, granny floral mirror” she hadn’t really liked since the day she brought it home. So pretty much she had nothing to lose! Armed with a 50-foot bag of manilla rope and a hot glue gun, Gina and her hubs spent only an hour transforming the once mediocre mirror into a trendy piece that’s perfect for summer.

Rope Wrapped Lamp

It’s about that time of year again when rope décor can be seen all over home décor stores and throughout catalog pages. Elissa shares at Clever how to give a lamp that much-desired nautical flair with some rope and a hot glue gun. I love how the little extras of the rope-trimmed shade and darker sisal tied around the neck of the lamp really bring the whole look together and give a high-end finish.

Hanging Lantern Light with Rope

Whether they are hanging from the ceiling or sitting tabletop, lanterns can be found everywhere in the décor world. But, of course, they come at a price, and a rather steep one at that! Nicole from DIY in Real Life found a way around those annoying price tags by updating secondhand brass light fixtures with black paint and rope. They ended up costing Nicole about $20 a piece, which is a steal compared to the fixtures she had been eyeing from Ballard and Restoration Hardware.

Hurricane with Rope Pedestal

Sometimes a simple flip or snip can give your old décor a whole new look. That was the case with this candle holder that Jeanette from Homa Style created by turning a glass dome she already owned upside down. She placed it atop a rope-wrapped vase with a dab of hot glue so it can easily transition back to a dome when Jeanette’s ready to mix it up again.

Wooden Christmas Tags

You may remember the wooden tags Jaime from That’s My Letter created for her front door as an alternative to a wreath for Thanksgiving. Jaime shows that the idea transcends the Thanksgiving season and made a set of chunky Christmas tags too. So simple, so cute, and so versatile!
