I once fell in love with a rope bowl, it was by David Stark for West Elm. Sadly that awesome rope bowl is no longer available, bring it back, bring it back I say! My latest crafty project was inspired by that bowl and I believe has something to do with my fixation on neutrals with layers of texture. In fact, I think I need an entire Pinterest category devoted to it.
I’ve had that rope bowl on my mind for many months, so I snagged a cheapo metal bowl from a craft store on clearance a few weeks ago, plus a couple of rolls of sisal rope from my local hardware store, and then got crafty with my glue gun.
How to Make a Sisal Rope Bowl:
Grab yerself a vessel, whatever you like. Aluminum handled bowls like this speckled one (reowr) work great. Also grab a dozen glue sticks, your trusty hot glue gun, and 50 to 75 feet of sisal rope (mine was ¼ inch thick).
