Use this neutral DIY Nautical Rope Wreath to decorate your home all summer long. It’s easy to make and costs under $10 in Dollar Tree supplies!
Welcome back to the monthly Creative Craft Blog Hop! A big thank you to Sara from Birdz of a Feather for hosting us during the summer months.
If you’re stopping by after a visit with my friend Lynne from My Family Thyme, welcome! There will be links to all of the creative craft projects at the end of this post.
How to Make a DIY Nautical Rope Wreath
- 10″ round foam wreath form (Dollar Tree)
- (5) packages of 8 ft Nautical Rope Jute (Dollar Tree)
- (3) starfish and assorted sea shells if desired
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
To start the wreath, glue an end of the rope to the wreath form.
Wind the rope tightly around the wreath form, and secure with hot glue after every turn.
Continue winding the packages of rope around the wreath form until you reach the end. Try to match up the cut ends of rope on the underside of the wreath form.
Wind the remaining rope around the form, about 2 1/2″ wide, to create a decorative accent. Secure the end in place with hot glue.
Decide the placement of the shells. At first, I was going to use quite a few shells, but then decided that I didn’t want to cover up too much of the rope. Instead, I kept it minimal with just 3 starfish.
Hot glue the starfish (and/or shells) in your desired pattern on the wreath. You can add a bow if you like, but I chose to keep mine simple and unadorned.
I love how my DIY Nautical Rope Wreath turned out! Can you believe I made it for only six bucks?
I had the starfish in my stash, but you can find them at craft stores. If you want to use just shells, they sell bags of shells at Dollar Tree, too.
