Gimme Jute and Hot Glue!

I love jute.  Growing up, we called it twine.  Or rope. 
Now that I'm a blogger, I guess I gotta be a cool cat and call it jute.

One day I was in Saint Vincent De Paul and I see this humongo bag of extra thick jute.
Exciting!  I brought the whole bag home and have used tons of it with still no end in sight!!

I hot glued it around a lamp shade....

hot glued it around this ugly gold basket....

 and even around a pillow!

Along with many other things, I adore using it as a heart on signs:

  1. I love all of these! I love the basket the best! :D

  2. I used to hate those baskets and get rid of them. No more!

  3. They all look amazing! I love what can be created with rope, jute, twine...and that pillow is fantastic!

  4. Jute is very cool! I guess I am very uncool thogh, cause I always want to call it twine - I don´t really get what the difference is... I covered the cable of a lamp I prettied up in jute (ha, I used the cool word!) You can see it here if you want...

  5. Nice project! Love this post of yours.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  6. Adorable! And I would have never thought to put it on a plain ol basket! Creative, I like it!

  7. I love the heart the best - but they're all super cool! I would never think to cover a pillow, but that looks great! Thank you for sharing (I wish I would find a humongo bag of twine!!! LOL) Julia
