How to make a rope bowl
I love this rope bowl, it's so stylish and great and totally fits into my décor!
It is just so neutral but adds so much – and I know it will add to any room in your house too, and only costs as much as a roll of twine or rope.
Before you start wrapping, adding a blob of hot glue to the ends of the rope to prevent fraying as you work.
As you wrap to create the base of the bowl, apply hot glue every 6 to 8 centimetres along.
Use a suitably sized bowl as a guide for the shape, and start to wrap the rope up and around the side of the bowl, applying hot glue as you wrap around.
Glue your rope together all the way up until your desired height. I applied my hot glue on the top outside edge of the rope bowl so I wouldn’t glue my rope to the glass bowl.
(note: I did get a little bit of glue on the glass but it washed right off in the dishwasher.)
In order to keep the rope from fraying when I cut it – I knew I needed to add an end of some sorts. I didn’t want tape so I used some embroidery thread.
I added a dot of hot glue and then tied a double knot pulling it tight into the glue.
I glued the end down with the knot facing down so it was hidden between the two layer and I was done!
