How to Make a Jute Rope Heart Embellishment


I was lucky enough to stumble across a HUGE bag of sisal jute twine ROPE WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT (I still don't know the difference between all those but I KNOW there's gotta be one so if someone can help a girl out...) at a Saint Vincent De Paul once.  It's like the widow's barrel of oil in the old testament that never ran out - but I know I'm probably nearing the end.  I've used it for everything.

I love making hearts out of it and embellishing signs so today I'm going to show you how to easily make your own!

All you need:

thick fabric
scissors
jute
hot glue gun

1. Cut a heart out of your thick fabric:


2. Using your hot glue gun, begin gluing the rope around the edge



4. Keep gluing around the inside of your heart.


5. Snip the umbilical cord and put a drop of glue on the end and squish it down in the middle.

Sometimes it won't come out exactly even - just cut off a little piece and fill it in wherever the space is.  It will blend right in. :)



Now you can just put some wood glue on the back of your heart and add it to whatever!  A wreath, a Sign, a pillow, your goat, go crazy! :)
