Transform an old vase into a beautiful natural looking conversation piece with my Sisal Rope Vase Makeover tutorial. Don’t miss out on more projects like this, check out my Home Decor Page.
I bought this huge vase a couple of years ago at my favorite Goodwill store and I had planned to make it over with just some spray paint. But, like a lot of my crafty ideas, I fell out of love with it and it ended up stored in the back of my basement.
Eventually, the trends change, and a couple of months later I was out shopping and saw an expensive rope basket vase at Target. I knew then how I could make that crazy mint colored 80’s vase more modern! I bought some sisal rope from Lowe’s. Grabbed my hot glue gun and got to work. Here’s how I did he transformation~
Sisal Rope Vase
Spray paint the vase with brown paint. Let it dry thoroughly.
Start wrapping and hot gluing the rope at the top edge. Make the rows as close together as you can get them. As you can see mine needed to be a little closer. Wrap the rope around the inner lip of the vase opening last.
Did you notice my sisal rope was a light color? When I made this post the stores did not sell dark shaded sisal rope so I had to stain the rope with wood finish.
Here’s what you do if you cannot find dark sisal rope: Cover the rope wrapped vase with the Spray-on Wood Finish to stain the rope. Wear gloves and rub the stain into the rope after each coat. I used the whole can. Love that they make this stain in a spray can! That’sit! Soo easy and that 80’s vase looks so much better!
