Hey all! I'm always looking for fun new ways to bring texture into my home. And as we all know.....what better way to do it than using JUTE! Am I right??
First off. Its cheap.
Second off. You get a lot of it.
Third off. Its soooo so easy to use and has tons of decorative uses.
I can keep going.....
and fourth off...
Just kidding ☺
I'm not done yet ☺ And fifth off...it makes super cute christmas trees!
It started off like this:
A couple...or three....floral cone styrofoam thingies
and some Jute!
After trial and error, I decided that the best way to go was starting from the bottom and going up or else some of the jute will fall over on itself. I just taped the bottom layer, or single strand, of jute to the base to secure it and just left it there. See...you can't even tell its there, huh?
Then I just kept going up and up and up....and a few hours into the movie later.....lol. JK. ☺ It maybe took like 10-15 minutes each....I was done!
The top isn't a point, its more like someone cut it off (how rude)....so I just went round and round with the jute 'til I got to the middle.....
Then put a good dab of this good ol'stuff on it and it stayed! and a few hours later.... its super hard so it'll never go out of place ☺ Ingenious this stuff is...I swear. You can use it on everything and anything. I made my jute balls with it too☺
And a few decorative....and festive....touches later!
A super easy centerpiece for any table!
The prettiness underneath it is just a frame with some fabric in it.
So simple...yet so elegant.
And thrifty and chic ☺
They are now sittin' fireside in my living room. *sigh*
