Nautical style rope jars

Nautical Style Rope Jars Int'l Bloggers Club Challenge 7

Today I’m showing you my nautical style rope jars I made the other day! You probably realized how I’m loving that nautical style and I thought I make something fun and easy to decorate with!

I found this rope at the spanish Dollarstore and took it home not knowing yet what to do with it, except I knew I wanted something nautical.  Then I stored it with the rest of my craft stuff and saw my jars and knew right away what to do! And these nautical style rope jars were made!!

What I used: 

If you’re up to making these yourself, here are some similar items I found to the ones I used for my jars. Just click on the pictures and it’ll lead you to where you need to be to get them.

I started with the bottom part of the jar. I applied the glue with my hot glue gun and rolled up the rope bit by bit. When the bottom was covered, I just kept on going around the jar, applying very little spots of glue on the glass. At the beginning I used too much glue and it would squeeze out between the strings of rope.

When the glass was all covered in rope I cut off the end and just looped it on the back of the glass and used hot glue again to make the loop stay put. I liked this better instead of just cutting off the rope although I don’t think it would be firm enought to actually hang the jar from it. 

Nautical Style Rope Jars [kreativk.net]I used dark blue acrylic paint and brushed it on with a sponge, but you could probably brush it on easier with paint brushes, I didn’t have any small ones handy.

I only brushed it on the bottom part and very uneven and it almost looks like dyed now. I really love the look! So nautical!

    These turned out so cool. Love the rope twisted around the glass jar, it gives it such a unique look. And the paint is my favorite color! There are so many things you could do with the jars, or just leave them empty to make their own statement! How fun.

      I needed something for one of my side tables and this is what I could think of and I do like the turnout as well. That blue is so perfect for this season or all year round really! I could turn my house blue, lol! Thanks friend 🙂

    I love this idea, especially the loop. I didn’t realize you painted the rope until I read the instructions. Very clever.

    Great craft project, and a brilliant way to use all those recycled jars who don’t clean up so well or have embossing on that doesn’t fit with what you want 🙂
