Nautical Jute and Rope Ornaments

Pin It
Welcome to the last day of our series! 12 days can go by pretty fast, huh? :) I wish I could say that these wonderful past 12 crafts/ornaments are still adorning my tree...but truthfully, when you have a toddler around, nothing adorns your tree for long. These ones today have been used as balls to throw around the house and to dance with :) How can you get upset at something so cute though, right?

Not only is this the last day of the series, but that also means there's a link party! You get to share with us what you've been up to :) Don't worry, if you don't have anything can still join later! It'll been open for 2 weeks. You can join in the party at the end of the post :)

So, today I'll be sharing with you my attempt at going nautical with my ornaments, but not in an obvious the jute and rope ornaments:
Jute and rope Christmas ornaments. Cute way to add texture!
 All you need for this is some jute or rope, a hot glue gun and some foam balls.

 I must say, that the rope is a lot quicker to do. If you have half an hour on your hands, go ahead and string the jute ball too :) I started in the middle and hot glued the rope almost every two inches or so until it reached the bottom.

 At the bottom, I looped around the rope and hot glued one end onto the opening of the ball.

 I then took another piece and finished roping the ball on the other half. Not leaving a loop this time at the bottom. And to make this a little more festive, I added some berries and leaves.
I did exactly the same thing to make the jute ball. I like the texture these add to the tree :)
