ideas before the actual fiesta! If you missed the menu and recipes, go here.
Here it as the centerpiece,
(For you I brought in spirea and cuttings from a tree in our yard)
For height I used a basket and turned it upside down, the sombreros were
from the Dollar Store a few years ago.
Onto the diy...
I chose this glass vase from the TJ Maxx clearance rack, it was $7 and I'm hoping
when I tire of the rope I can remove it and the glue and still have a usable vase.
The Manila Rope is 1/4" x 50' $5.50 at Home Depot,
you'll need two.
Couldn't be easier, using your glue gun secure the rope and keep wrapping and gluing...
...and wrapping and gluing.
Dang! Run to Home Depot to get more rope!
For reference my vase is 14" tall and 27" in circumference.
You really don't notice the difference in shades of rope in person.
It's a quick project, probably an hour or so putting it together.
It would even be a fun, unique Mother's Day gift!
