Looking for warm centerpieces for your Thanksgiving table? This easy DIY won't take long for you to make, and you've probably already got most of the supplies you'll need.
- Oatmeal container
- Jute Rope
- Box cutter
- Glue (Elmer's or hot glue)
- Tape Measure or ruler
- Decorative plants or flowers
Using Elmer's glue or hot glue, begin gluing the jute chord around the top of the container. Hot glue is easiest because you won't have to wait for the glue to dry. Just make sure you pull away those pesky strings of glue as you go along. Also make sure there aren't any gaps where the glue can be seen. I left room at the mouth of the vase to do a clean finish at the very end.
When you're done with the rest of the vase, return to the top to create one final circle around the rim. This will give your vase a nice polished look. It doesn't have to be perfect. The look of this rope vase is meant to look a little earthy and rugged. Just be sure to hide the hot glue as best you can.
When you're finished, you can fill your vase with sweetgrass, flowers or whatever else you'd like. I placed a small glass bowl inside of mine to catch the wax from candles and also so that I could keep the stems of fresh flowers in water. And just like that, you've created a chic fall centerpiece that is creative and modern. And the best part? This craft costs next to nothing to make!
