Fall Braided-Rope and Burlap Wreath

on September 28, 2016

Hey, everyone! So it seems I have my hat on backward – can’t seem to get my calendar right! Ever had one of those weeks? Anyhow, I’m here today with a group of my favorite bloggers for the September Create and Share Challenge. The material we are working with this month is rope! Thank you to Stephanie of Casa Watkins and Cat of Pocketful of Posies for sponsoring this challenge every month! 

Everyone who knows me, or has visited my blog, knows love a good wreath. I I love to make them for every season, and have selections for Fall, Spring, Summer, and Winter and many others in my arsenal! Still, I do like to change them up – I call it wreath fickleness – and so I’m always looking for new ideas and looks. 

Rope is an inexpensive and versatile medium for so many different crafts and decorating ideas as you’ll see both here and from my fellow challengers below. Using a foam wreath form, I created my wreath by first braiding three strands of cotton rope and then wrapping the braids around the form using hot glue to secure it.

For further accent, I created twine “lace” by looping and gluing in a line. I love the little bit of bling from the gold filament running through the twine.

To give a clean edge, I braided a jute and twine trim and glued it around the lace rope. 

To finish it off I added a burlap ribbon bow and a flower created from hemp rope, accented with a wooden button and upholstery tacks.

I love that this wreath can be used for multiple seasons and both inside and out of my home, giving it tremendous versatility.  

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and look at my project. I hope you’ll come by again! For now, please be sure to visit the other rope projects for the month and be ready to ooh and ah!
