DIY: Nautical Globe Vase

I have seen nautical, partially wrapped globe vases on Pinterest and some fabulous ladies' Instagrams (Lisa B. I'm talking to you!)  I decided it was time to make a couple of my own!  Luckily, I had a couple of bags of unopened rope, my trust glue gun and a few left over globe vases from our wedding.  These took me about 20 minutes in total from start to finish and were super easy!

Step 1.
After your glue gun is good and hot, lay your rope out and make a line of glue on your rope, especially at the starting end...

Step 2.
Place the rope where you want it - I went right for the middle - and press the rope onto the glass.

Step 3.
Continuing adding glue and pressing the rope on.

Step 4.
Wrap around, trying to keep the rope in a even line, gluing and pressing.

I did three rows around.  At the end, I cut the rope so it was even with the starting point, put glue all the way to the end and pushed it on and up.  Does that make sense?  That is hard to explain without showing one on one.

So easy and fun to have on hand!

Our globes are from our wedding florist but you can get some here!

I filled my large one with a shell and mini buoy and the smaller one with water and a floating candle.

I plan on using these outside for dinners outdoors or some vino under the stars!

The best part? I didn't have to spend a dime!
