How to Make Rope-wrapped Door Wreath

Hey, everyone! 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. My project is a rope-wrapped door wreath and I’m going to tell you how to make it! 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 I love a good wreath. 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. What I didn’t have in my collection was a rope-wrapped wreath!

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.

    Your rope and twine/burlap wreath is stunning. The neutral colors really draw your eye to all the detail you've put in it. I simply love it!
