Homemade: Roped In

Aye, aye, aye - what a week this has been.  All week I have felt like I have been a day late and a dollar short!  And while I had the very best intentions of getting a sweet homemade project put together for you - a variety of events have happened that have just put me behind schedule, and left me without time to do so. 

So please forgive me for not creating my own homemade post for you today.  However, here is an easy (really only two items needed) DIY project that I am adoring right now.  How about a simple display of rope in glass vases...
I can't help but think that they would make fabulous centerpieces!  I would love to see this type of decor at a beach/lake wedding.  It's simple, elegant and not blue.  The calm color palette of neutral, natural colors would look wonderful by the water - allowing the beach/lake to take center stage.  However, a hint (key word here) of baby blue here and there would look lovely with this neutral color palette.

And with a couple other decorations such as the shell above, some vintage books or prints, flowers in white and cream, and lots of candles - your tables would be oh so dreamy.

P.S. - I will be back on track next week with my own Tuesday Thought and Homemade project for you...so be on the lookout for them!

  1. I love unique centerpieces! the texture of the rope is fabulous!

  2. Oh I love that! So simple yet very interesting to look at! Fab find!

  3. Oh. My. God. It was like this post answered my wedding prayers. I was just contemplating what to do with my centerpieces for my beach-themed wedding, which I knew would include glass jars like these. This is a perfect idea and so, so simple!

  4. I understand what it's like to feel like something isn't what you could do with more time, but I love this! I think the average person (me) feels unintimidated by taking on a project like this, so unexpected & cute!

  5. This looks lovely. I have some old glass bottles & have been trying to think of ways to use them. Now when I have my craft room renovated I shall use them as twine dispensors- good display & practical! I found ur blog via free pretty things for you- so now I'm having a look around- nice blog!

  6. This is beach-chic-perfection! And your timing is spot on...I need to decorate this darn house and I am sick to death of blue! This will be lovely in my living room...thanks!

  7. I SO know how you feel being a step behind!!! Love the rope idea!!

  8. they're beautiful! i love the idea for a beach wedding...i usually hate those hurricanes filled with sand and seashells ha..
