Activity: Rope Crafts

Rope is often thought of as a practical item — something you use for tying knots, as a clothesline, or for tying down tents and tarps.

However, there are also a variety of creative uses for rope. If you have some extra rope around the house, you can use it for the following crafts:

  • Rope mirror: Attach a rope to both sides of a medium-sized circular or rectangular mirror and use the rope to hang the mirror (rather than using the included hanger). This will add a nautical touch to your decor, especially if the mirror is circular like a porthole!
  • Rope planter: Upgrade your plain planters (ceramic or plastic) by wrapping them in rope. After wrapping, you can paint stripes along the lines of the rope for a cheerful and decorative touch.
  • Rope rug: Shape your rope into flat circles. Once you have several flat circles, hot glue them to a rug pad or sew their edges together to keep them in place. You can add touches of paint or twist in ribbons before you coil the rope if you’d prefer more color.
  • Rope candle holder or vase: Wrap a small rope around the bottom of a glass container, wrapping it until it covers about half of the glass. Place a candle inside for a cute, beachy candle holder, or use it as a vase.
