Let's Upcycle: Sisal Rope

Upcycle this hardware store basic into a one-of-a-kind art piece, perfect for filling in any bare spot on a wall. (You know, above the sofa?) Or, use the same technique to quickly craft coasters. Our friends at the uber-cute ModCloth will show you how!

We all have that awkward spot in our homes that needs a little art therapy, but well...who has the time to search for just the right-sized piece? (And procrastinating on that task is how that bare spot got there in the first place.) On top of that, things can get expensive fast. To save time and cost, upcycle sisal rope into a piece that will be just the right size for you. The trick is to coil the rope into nice little swirls, then glue in place. Easy, right?

You can also use this technique to create coasters and trivets. These would make a great hostess gift for the upcoming warm weather entertaining months...after all, sisal can stand up to lots of wear-and-tear. Check out the full how-to at ModCloth.
