I think it’s probably the preppy, water-loving side of me that constantly gravitates toward chic, nautical details. No, you’re not going to find my house decked out in lighthouses and seagulls, but I definitely appreciate a nod toward all things seaside. Lately I’ve been seeing and pinning a ton of rope-inspired DIY projects and crafts. Vases, pendant lights, mirrors, you name it! There are so many fresh craft ideas out there these days. Loving a little nautical flavor yourself? Here are 12 awesome rope crafts!
