Rustic Rope Bowl – DIY
This project idea was triggered by the pine cones that my dear friend send to me couple of weeks ago. They are sitting in a box smelling beautify right now waiting for me to use them. It may be a while so I decided to find a way to display them in my home before they became part of my projects so Let’s make a Rope Bowl! Perfect little rustic accent in any home decor. I have done few projects with Mod Podge and have to admit that this one is one of my favorite ones. My desire was to use a rope. Don’t you just love nice rope crafts? RUSTIC BOWL DIY
ITEMS NEEDED TO MAKE A Bowl
- Rope/Jute (thicker is the best)
- Saran wrap– plastic wrap
- Bowl of your choice as a template
If you are not a big fan of rustic style you can switch that brown rope for a white macrame one and make your bowl diy even more special.
First you need to find a bowl that you like to use as a template. My mixing bowl seemed to be perfect size for my needs.
Steps to make a bowl
- Wrap your bowl tightly with saran wrap as it shows on the pictures below.
- Apply a good amount of a Mod- Podge all over your layer of Saran-Wrap. Make sure to protect your surface …it may be bit messy but I guarantee you it is soo worthy.
- Start to layer your rope around bowl starting at the top as it is shown in the picture below. To my surprise all was nicely sticking together.
- Make sure rope is layered evenly all around without leaving any gaps for a nice uniformed look. I promise it is not difficult at all
The whole wrapping didn’t really take a long time and look how awesome my rope craft look already.
- Apply a thick coat of Mod-Podge to a layered rope. Make sure to cover all. Leave to dry for few hours. I am going to leave mine overnight just to make sure all is dry.
- It is all dry now I hope. Carefully separate bowl from your template and remove inner coating of saran wrap
Its time !
I couldn’t believe how beautiful it already looks.. and how sturdy it is. So very pleased with what I see so far. Perfect rope craft
It looks awesome! All layers are nicely attached! Love it my rope bowl diy ! I don’t know if you can see on the picture but there is a small shimmer on the rope. I actually don’t mind it gives a nice touch. If you are not a fan of that you can nicely remove it with dry cloth. Perfect rustic home decor idea
Can’t wait to finally style with my new bowl. For now my pinecones will have a beautiful spot to hang out.
Really love the way my little project turned out! I am for sure going to make more of them! Just noticed my daughter hair ties scattered all over her table! I think she will finally love to have them organize in one of those bowls too. I may choose for her a fun color.

very nice project
I would use matte polyurethane on your cute rope bowl. Mod Podge is just glue and water and if it should get we or damp I think it will start to fall apart. My reasoning is that my friend made me a cup with a design on it covered by Mod Podge for dishwashers. They may tell you that it is water proof but they do not tell you not to use the cup in a microwave. Mod Podge might be good for some things but to me it is overpriced watered down glue.
