No Sew Rope Serving Dish
"This Summer my mood for changing the decoration of my home is not that high. I made a couple of Candle Holders with Sea pattern and I kept my Painted Driftwood, but nothing else. The shells are remaining hide in the boxes and I do not want to take them out. Of course there are exceptions, like my jewelry anf the Driftwood Necklace I did! Anyhow, I always wanted to try to make something with rope and this was the time. I really like the color of the rope and that you can use it in various different ways. However, this time I wanted a craft that can be used all year and not only during Summer. A serving dish to keep also my candles, was just perfect."
- rope (about 10m)
- paint (chalk paint and acrylic)
- hot glue
- paint brush
Cut with the scissor the first edge of the rope and trim off any unraveled end. Put hot glue on the edge and wait a few seconds to dry. Then curl the end around itself in a tight spiral. Continue adding lines of glue around the flat rope circle, firmly pressing the rope in as you go.
If you wish to make a simple dish to use it for the decoration or for coaster, do not change anything in the procedure. But if you want to make it looks like a serving dish, we need to make a couple of handles. It is really easy. In the point that you want to have the handle, just do not use hot glue at all. Leave space to the rope and then start adding glue again on the second edge of the handle. That's it. The dish is ready!
Start painting in simple circles and let it dry
