Learn how to make a DIY rope wreath using white cotton rope from the Dollar Tree and a wire wreath form!
Wreaths can be made with just about any craft supply imaginable.
Recently, we made a jute wreath using a circle wire wreath frame and jute rope. It turned out beautifully!
Today, we are going to use the exact same technique, but this time using cotton rope instead.
Let’s take a look at how to make a rope wreath!
How to Make a Rope Wreath
Step 1. Gather Supplies
Step 2. Using the same weaving technique we used in the jute wreath tutorial, thread the rope through the wire rungs of the wreath form in an alternating pattern – over, under, over, under, and come back through the other way, under, over, under over.
Continue this alternating over/under weaving pattern with each pass of the rope through the wire frame.
Step 3. Snug up the rope as you weave it onto the wire frame so there aren’t any gaps.
You want the rope to be snug because the weave pattern will show more as the back and forth passes of rope nestle together.
Step 4. Continue to weave the rope over and under the wires of the wreath form.
You can add new sections of rope if you need, coming from the backside. You can secure the ends of the rope sections to the back using hot glue.
Step 5. Keep going until the entire wreath form is filled!
Hot glue the end of the rope to the back of the wreath, and you are done!
Your rope wreath is finished!
Hang it on a nail or add a small loop of twine or string to the back with hot glue so you can hang it up.
The texture of the rope combined with the texture created by weaving the rope under and over the wires of the wreath form create a beautifully textured wreath that looks much more intricate and complicated than it really is!
It looks almost macrame-like, but it’s not!
The wreath is gorgeous on its own and a wonderful addition to nautical or classic home decor.
You can also add embellishments to the wreath if you like, to make it tie into whatever holiday is coming up next!
