I brainstormed all kinds of ideas, but nothing really hit me. I wanted something different and unique that would totally catch your eye when you walk in the house. That’s when the light bulb finally went off, and I came up with these fun and fabulous rope letters!
Aren’t those the cutest things you’ve ever seen? I was inspired by a photo from Green Wedding Shoes and knew these rope letters would be the perfect statement to hang over my kitchen shelf! This is a bit of a messy project, but it only takes a few simple supplies and is really easy!
I started with a package of jute rope. I thought the light natural color would be perfect in my kitchen, but you can find it in other colors too!
You’ll want to use a shorter word if you’re planning on hanging it on the wall so it doesn’t get flimsy in the middle. I chose EAT for my kitchen, because well… I think that says it all! I first sketched the word on scrap paper to find a design I liked. After I liked the way it looked, I drew my design on the wax paper with a pencil, making sure to stay within my guidelines. You’ll want to pay attention to how your letters will connect and bend. The rope won’t make perfect sharp angles, so allow for some loops and curls. Think about where you’ll hang the letters too!
Do you love the idea of getting all your project supplies delivered to your door? Would you like me to offer more of my projects like this? Tell me what you think!
