Giggles and Glue Guns

Decorating With Rope

I love decorating with rustic materials (cue link to DIY burlap upholstered chairs) and rope totally ties into that… ha, get it, ties? Okay, let’s not get tangled in the silly stuff – the point is, rope is an easy and accessible item to use in interior decorating. Just visit your local hardware store and pick up a nice bundle for on-the-cheap! Rope doesn’t always have to look nautical; choose a darker, coarser rope to get away from the sea-faring look but if nautical is what you want, get a lighter colored cotton rope.

All of these photos demonstrate how versatile rope can be in your interior decor projects. You can use rope functionally, ex: holding up beds, mirrors, as a banister, etc. and also decoratively, ex: coiled around a pedestal table or simply tucked in a clear glass fishbowl… Love!

Let me know if you have any rope decor ideas of your own!
