Nautical rope decor is an inexpensive way to fill your home with beach-themed decor. This rope wall art can actually be made in any shape that you like. I am using an anchor but you can make matching signs with fish, seahorses, starfish, and so much more. You are going to love this easy technique for making your own art! This one was first published on Darice where I am a paid contributor but I wanted to post it here in case you missed it.

- Navy and White Craft Paint
- 1/4″ Jute Rope (approximately 18 feet)
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
How to make this rope wall art:
Start by painting the wood pallet sign with the blue and white paints. I did a stripe design on mine but you can make it solid if you wish. You can also use a dry brush paint technique if you want to make the sign more rustic. This involves getting very little paint on the brush so you are left with areas that are unpainted after you finish. Allow this to dry completely before continuing.
You will then need a shape to put on your nautical rope decor. Print an anchor or any other shape the size you wish on plain copy paper. Then cut it out and lay it on top of your sign. Trace with a pencil.
Use your jute twine and hot glue to start filling in your shape with the rope. I found it easiest to start around the outer edge and work my way in.
You may need to cut the rope a few times to finish your rope wall art. That is okay! Just cut it with scissors and start again. You can also use small cut pieces if needed to completely fill in your shape.
Completely fill in your shape with rope then your nautical rope decor is ready to put anywhere in your home!
I love the rustic feel of this piece and it is perfect for adding a touch of the beach to your home this summer.
