Then just break out a variety of twine and rope plus your trusty hot glue gun. On the frame shown above, we just added a few strips of jute twine around the outside using hot glue. It gives the frame a little something special and makes it perfect for a beach picture. You can paint any frame white then add on rope for the same effect.
We went with a heavier rope on our next item. This is a plain, clear glass vase that you can pick up at the dollar store or even a second hand store Start at the bottom and work the rope up the entire length of the vase. I just used hot glue to secure. Add a fun sea shell to the front if desired as well. This nautical decor will look great in your home and you don’t have to tell anyone how easy it was to make!
A beach themed home needs storage as well. Here we took a paper mache box and added rope just around the lid. A simple starfish was added to the top to continue the beach feel of this project. It is amazing what hot glue and a little rope can do to the simplest of objects.
