Rope Chandelier for a Nautical Nursery

diy-rope-chandelier.png

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.”

Super Cheap Numbered Baskets

I know I can always count on Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict for a good knock-off, and again she doesn’t disappoint! Recently Debbie’s teenage grandson started using her guest bedroom, which necessitated a few tweaks to the space, including her French number plaque baskets. Debbie gave them a more masculine edge by simply tying on mailbox numbers with jute. She says, “There it is! Could it be any easier or cheaper?”

Old Chandy Shades Refabbed with Jute

Allison from Refunk My Junk says she’s been giving her old gold chandy shades the stink eye for quite some time while simultaneously coveting the Jute Twine Chandelier Shades from Ballard Designs. Instead of spending almost $100.00 on new shades, Allison used two rolls of jute twine that were purchased for $2.00 and revamped her existing shades. Allison says, “I love the look and the price-tag even more!”

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.

Wooden Twine and Scissors Holder

When it comes to Pinterest, the pinning is the easy part. It’s making those pins actually come to fruition that presents the greater challenge. So you know Angie at Knick of Time was thrilled to mark this wooden twine holder as “pinned and done,” especially considering she pulled it off for less than a dollar using part of an old chair leg and a small wooden plaque she picked up from the craft store. This is such a darling storage idea that could also work great for ribbon, wasabi tape, and other crafting supplies.

Mason Jar Snowglobes

Lindsay of Makely created her own little winter wonderland with repurposed mason jars, bottle brush trees, and fake snow. And when I say winter wonderland, I am not kidding! Lindsay made 21 of the adorable snow globes to display together on her antique sideboard. I love the special touch of the red and white twine and tags for a little “Lindsay spin” {wink}.

Felt Mistletoe

Make-Mistletoe-from-Felt-ItsOverflowing1

When West Elm sold out of felt mistletoe before November even ended, Aimee from It’s Overflowing gathered a few basic crafting supplies to recreate the holiday plant. Floral wire gave life to yarn and felt and made it super easy for Aimee to shape her mistletoe. These are adorable to hang on gifts or in hallways for extra smooches!

Christmas Stocking Pillow

This holiday pillow from Melissa at 320 Sycamore ticks all the boxes – crazy cheap, amazingly easy, very versatile, and oh so cute! Melissa simply glued some twine with mini stockings to a ready-made pillow. But wait there’s more {wink}… Melissa used the reverse side of a snowflake pillow, so all she has to do is flip it over after the holidays for instant winter décor. That Melissa is one smart cookie!
