DIY: Rope Words

We found this original DIY on the Wednesday blog – it was also featured on Green Wedding Shoes. This is such a great idea and could be used to display all sorts of fun and meaningful words or phrases.

You will need:

  • rope or jute
  • 4 oz. white school glue
  • 1/2 cup of cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup of warm water
  • wax paper

After gathering your supplies, lay the wax paper out over your work space.

Then, pick your word (or words)!

Whisk the cornstarch, glue and warm water together in a bowl until its smooth. 

Feed the rope into the mixture until it is saturated.

Lay out your word on the wax paper. Wednesday says Push down hard in the areas where the rope overlaps. You may also need to apply extra glue mixture to those areas to ensure the hold when dried. And that’s it! Once you’ve finished let your word dry on a hard, flat surface for 12 hours. 

And display!
