Seven DIY Ways To Use Rope In Your Space

Hello from sunny Spain guys! I’ve had such an amazing time visiting lots of different traditional craft stores, meeting makers, and learning Mallorca’s creative history. I can’t wait to share all that with you.

One of my favourite things about this country (other than the people, the food, the beaches etc etc etc) is alllll the traditional crafts that are present, and how much the makers appreciate materials.  Take rope for example, which is such a gorgeous material to work with and is used in everything from decor to accessories (pssst check out our macrame knot guide here). Being here is so inspiring, that I thought it would be nice to recap some of our rope projects wth you. Enjoy!

The Rope Planter

You can do a surprising number of things with rope and hot glue, one of which is to make a planter or basket. This is a very easy alternative to making a rope basket using a sewing machine!

Rope Belt

Who says rope has to be just for your home? In my (very humble!) opinion, it looks just as good on your body as well.

Rope isn’t just for weaving, it’s for wrapping too. This project is a crazy easy Ikea hack that takes a very simple lampshade from boring to beautiful.
