DIY Rope Vases

Dear Chicago House,

Ohh I do like making things that cost next to nothing.

What do you think of these gorgeously textured rope vases, that are sitting on my desk as I type this letter to you?

They started life as empty cans (kidney beans, tomatoes and diced chilies I seem to remember)

With a bit of hot glue and various balls of jute and piping cord they have been transformed. Easy peasy, start at the bottom of the can winding the rope around and securing with the odd squirt of hot glue as you go
