The rustic trend is definitely one I’m loving in more ways than one, while also being perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday… at least I think so. As Thanksgiving is a holiday surrounded around the table, a big meal, family, and entertaining, having a vase(s) full of flowers can create a warm, welcoming aesthetic. I have been seeing tons of inspiring pins for rustic Thanksgiving table settings and that inspiration paired with my leftover rope from this project & a bland vase, made an interesting twist on a possible Thanksgiving centerpiece. If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, give this tutorial a try!
What you’ll need: vase, rope, and a hot glue gun.
Start by flipping the vase upside down. Using your hog glue gun, secure the end of the rope to the corner of the vase. Once it is secure, begin wrapping the rope around the vase applying glue about every inch or so.
Each time you glue the rope to the vase, ensure you put pressure on it for about 10-15 seconds.
Trim the rope once you reach the top of the vase and put a little extra glue to keep the end piece down.
