This DIY project took about 10 minutes, and cost less than $5 to make. I absolutely love how it turned out. I had some leftover Manila rope from another project, when I spotted these Pottery Barn beauties, and remembered all about it.
I previously used the rope for a few accent pieces in the guest bedroom, it really helps achieve that nautical, by the sea vibe. These candle holders do the same, and it really transforms an ordinary glass candle holder into a stylish piece for the home.
For this project you’ll need:
Rope (I used Manila, but your local Lowe’s or Home Depot should have several options. You could even use white, or a thicker pier-like rope.)
Glass vase/candle holder (I bought mine at the dollar store, because I liked the simple glass shape of the vase.)
To make, simply glue the end of the rope to the glass. Make sure to glue at the very bottom edge, so that glass doesn’t show from the bottom. Then, wrap your rope around your glass piece as close as possible. I periodically glued between the rope links to ensure it was snug and no glass would show through in between the rope links.
I went about 3/4 of the way up. Then simply cut your rope and glue the end into the last link. It’s such a simple way to dress up an ordinary candle holder.
