Let's start with Nautical Rope Crafts. They are immensely popular and it's easy to see why. Rope has a great natural quality to it and is available in so many different variations that it goes with almost any decor style. Plus, it's a creative endeavour to incorporate utilitarian items such as rope into the decor!
Nautical DIY Coasters are made by Hi Friend Design. Rope coasters were taken a step further by creating a custom stencil and cranking up the color. Really pretty!
Coastal and nautical chic Table Makeovers. Another great idea with rope. Via Apartment Therapy.
Nautical Crafts by JoAnn. One very unique idea in the collection is this large wall sail made from canvas cloth. What a great nautical statement this makes! Other neat nautical crafts include anchor pillows, rope hanging lantern, oar wall hanging, and more. So head over and take a look. JoAnn's projects are all available on free downloadable PDF files.
Driftwood Sailboats are sure a favorite! The mini flags give these boats a fun nautical vibe. Love them! Made by Beachcomber.
A welcome ship wheel for the door. How unique! You can learn all about this project over at Upcycled Treasures.
Want to Decorate with a Nautical Life Preserver? Here's a stylish DIY version! The tube/ring can be bought at your local crafts store. Then paint, add rope and decorate with stencils. Find the Tutorial here! It would look great in a bathroom, as seen here.
Art Oars from Inspired by Charm. Pick up an old oar at an antique, thrift shop or on Ebay, and paint it in bright fun colors. For more inspiration, tutorials, as well as sources to buy, go to Painted Oars | DIY or Buy.
Debi Beard's super cool Nautical Buoy Lamps which are so fun and color intense. Another idea, DIY Glass Float Rope Lamps.
