You know those nautical rope vases that you see in the store and they’re just so beautiful? Well, this DIY is easy enough for even a beginner crafter to complete. Also, don’t you think this would make the perfect centerpiece on your table?


Tips for Making a DIY Nautical Rope Vase

When picking out the nautical rope for this project, I would suggest going for a chunkier rope. However, you can also do this with a thinner rope. If you decide to use a thinner rope, be mindful as you apply hot glue so that it doesn’t show in the cracks of the rope.

As you apply the rope, make sure to press it down into the previous wrap to get a nice full look.

If you have a vase that you’re not using then save you some money and use it for this project. To decorate the rope vase, you can add embellishments to enhance the look.

  • 2 Nautical Ropes

  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun


  1. Clean the vase of any dust, dirt, or stickers.
  2. Start by applying a line of hot glue along the bottom of the
    vase and applying the nautical rope ( tip: the glue dries quickly on glass so don’t do to long of a line of hot glue or you will have to peel it off).
  3. Keep applying the glue and wrapping the nautical rope around the vase until the rope ends.
  4. When the rope ends, attach the next rope where you left off,
    keep gluing and wrapping until you reach the top.
  5. Trim the floral foam to fit into the bottom of your vase and then place it in the vase. You can secure the floral foam with hot glue if desired but it isn't necessary.
  6. Arrange your flowers in your vase and enjoy!
