Project #4 Sisal Rope Vase

This was a real simple project I did while watching tv.

I was inspired by the item below, I spotted at Home Goods (again)
The minute I saw it I said to myself, " yep I can do that" "Already have everything I need!"
My only regret is not taking more, bigger, better, Inspiration pics with my iphone,
 while waltzing around the store.  It had a big plume of natural elements in it, but I already had them too in another vase at home.

 I actually went back the next day to get a clock I loved, and thought about taking another picture but the vase was gone!


 A bit of tweeking and I settled on this arrangement

It was a simple craft done while watching NCSI, with my sisal rope, glue gun and an old ftd vase, that was actually in our donation box in the garage.

 ..and this is what I formed.

I like the shape of mine better than the one I saw at Home Goods, and I made sure this baby will not be unraveling!

A nice touch of coastal decor.
