Rope Wrapped Terracotta Lights

Please tell me I’m not the only one decorating the house for summer in the middle of April? I don’t know why, but I had a week off and couldn’t help but adding lots of beach vibes to my home and these cute rope wrapped terracotta lights really help with that! 🙂 

[Please note, that this post contains affiliate links, for more info please also read my disclosure.]

What can I say, the temps here in the South of Spain are in the high twenties celsius, can’t really blame me for wanting to bring that summer feel inside, right? I love how long the days are already, how warm the sun is without being too hot to handle and how everything is just blooming and alive! 

Are you ready for some beachy feel in your home already, if so, here’s how:

Rope Wrapped Terracotta Lights

What you’ll need:

~ mini terracotta pots 

~ white paint 

~ hot glue gun

~ white candles

~ sisal rope

I buy tons of these cute terracotta pots, I usually give them some quick brushes of white paint to make them look less new… I used them last here.

Glue the sisal rope around the pots with the hot glue gun.

Using acrylic paint, I added some white stripes to one of them.

I put small thicker candles in each one of them…

Then I put them inside these lanterns I just love to redecorate each season. Last summer I decorated them like thisrope wrapped terracotta lights kreativk.net

    Even though we’re nowhere near the water I love the beach/coastal theme. The wrapped pots are a simple craft that conveys theme right away. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story, and have a great weekend.

    Katrin, what a cute way to dress up terracotta pots!! I like the feel the rope gives, so natural and coastal. I think I’m ready for summer, but I’m definitely going to enjoy the mild spring weather while I can. 🙂

    These are the perfect thing for summer on the deck! I’m really not ready for the heat of summer quite yet, but it is a good plan to start on the décor while it’s still cool. I always love the way you use the lanterns, they are very versatile. Thank-you for another easy and kreative project, as always.

I was worried about you, I’m glad you’re back!! 🙂 I have no idea what is going on with my commenting section, I have had it checked, but removed some words for spam check, so it might have been that, I hope it keeps on working because I always enjoy hearing from you 🙂

    Katrin this was such a lovely way to add a bit of the summertime into your house. The white paint makes them all bright and happy. I can’t believe it is so hot there already!

    Such a lovely idea Katrin and it does add a great summery coastal vibe. I’m so glad Spring has finally sprung for you guys. It sounds like Winter overstayed her welcome a bit. Hope you had a lovely break and that you’re enjoying the lovely weather

      I love shells too, I have to go to the beach and get some, most of ours from last year are outside in flower pots… Thank you Marjan, I hope you’ve enjoyed your Easter as well!!
