After gathering all your supplies, it’s time to get making. In order to keep this project simple, you’ll want to start out by cutting your rope into more manageable lengths. I would suggest roughly 4-5 feet long.
Start the weaving process by securing one end of your jute rope to the wreath frame with hot glue. My suggestion is to start near one of the vertical pieces on the frame. Leave a tail of your rope approximately 2″ long and start weaving. Once you have woven a section roughly 3″ wide, you can add a drop of hot glue to the starting tail of the rope and secure it to the back of the wreath.
Continue weaving until you reach the end of the rope section and secure it with hot glue. Start again with the next piece of rope and continue weaving until you reach the end of the wreath frame. Be sure that as you are weaving, you’re keeping the rope tight. You don’t really want gaps where the wire of the frame can show through.
Once you’ve woven the rope all the way around, secure the endpoint. Trim the rope and use hot glue to tuck the tail in. You may want to take a quick look at the back of the wreath at this point and make sure that all loose strands of rope have been secured with hot glue.
Create a hanger for your wreath by using a piece of rope roughly 18″ long. Secure the ends to the back to form a triangle when the wreath is hanging.
Now it’s time to add some extra flair to your wreath! You can attach a bow, ribbon, or even artificial flowers using hot glue. Get creative and personalize your wreath to match your style and the occasion.
And the final step? Hang and enjoy your new decor piece! Find a perfect spot to display your woven rope wreath. You could hang it on your front door or porch, above your fireplace, or anywhere you want to add a rustic touch. Be sure to stand back and admire your beautiful creation!
Creating a woven rope wreath is a quick and easy budget-friendly project. With just a few simple materials and some creativity, you can make stunning decor for your home.
