Kathy from The Budget Decorator gave a dollar store vase the easiest makeover known to man – with hot glue! Kathy simply turned her vase while putting lines of hot glue around it to create texture. This is the perfect pick-me-up for any plain glass candle holder, vase, etc. Kathy has plenty to be proud of with this vase. Like she says, “It looks about as close as you can get to the original vase!”
Marie from Blooming Homestead loved the look of Ballard’s seagrass hurricanes so much she headed straight to the craft store for glass jars and sisal rope to make her own. Marie shares at I Heart Nap Time how she wove the rope and then attached it to the glasses armed with just her glue gun. These hurricanes are a seasonal decorators dream! Marie says she can’t wait to add succulents in the spring and sand and shells in the summer.
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.
Griffin from The Design Itch was inspired by a woven ottoman from Crate & Barrel to make her own. Initially Griffin thought she could simply wrap a garden stool in nautical rope but discovered this solution would cost her way more than simply buying it from Crate & Barrel. So instead Griffin thought outside the box and glued together two ceramic pots and wrapped them in rope. Her knock-off has a similar form and the same wonderful texture as the original.
