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.
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!
What do you think of my nautical style rope jars?? It sure is a fun craft and easy to make as well!
