10 Ways To Decorate With Jute Or Rope

Today I’m going to show you 10 ideas I found on Pinterest to decorate with rope. These DIY’s are very clever and cheap as well.

This morning I suggested to another blogger that she might wrap something in rope. Then I got to thinking: what all can you decorate with rope?

And so I went searching on Pinterest to find out.

Rope Placemats:

City Farmhouse came up with this one. These placemats resemble ones that came from Pottery Barn. But they didn’t. She shows you how to make them here.

This is a great dollar store craft by The Latina Nextdoor. I think it’s beautiful. And so creative. She shows you how here.

Rope Ottoman:

Ottomans are a hot commodity right now. Here’s a project that uses a tire and rope. This one is from Style Me Pretty. They show you how here.

Rope Plant Container:

I love my house plants. But the containers would look a lot better wrapped in rope. This is from Collective Gen and they show you how to do it here.

Rope/Sisal Covered Tray:

Well, this makes great use of an old pizza pan. I’d have just tossed it. But a DIYer sees all kinds of possibilities. Inspired Decorator shows you how she did it here.

Rope Mirror:

I’ve used jute to decorate the wood around a mirror before, but it wasn’t round. I love this one! Modern Day Moms shows you the tutorial here.

Rope Planter/Waste Basket:

This is used as a planter, but you could also use it as a waste basket. And what a pretty one it would be at that. This one comes from Windmill & Protea. She shows you how to do it here.

These are placemats. But if you just made it bigger it could be a rug. DIY rug has to be way cheaper than one from a store. You can find the instructions from Completely Coastal for this DIY here.

  1. These are all good ideas. On “Battle on the Beach” on HGTV one of the teams made a light to hang over a table from a plastic plant pot turned upside down and wrapped in jute. It got rave reviews from the judges and they said it looked like a high-end item.

  2. Hi Brenda,
    Wow, I like this post and your helpful referrals. Years ago (probably 25) I made a mirror with heavy duty anchor jute rope and sea shells over a piece of wood. My husband cut the wood to look like an arched window. It was hung over a driftwood console table outside and under a covered patio. When we sold the house the new owners bought all my outdoor furn. and the fountain. They said our entry and backyard sealed the deal!

  3. Great suggestions! I am going to do the ottoman and the pizza pan tray. I have a couple of pizza pans that I never use and we have several old tires that I was waiting for special pick up to get rid of them, but I’ll keep two to make the ottoman!
