Centerpieces can be expensive – that’s why I love creating my own. When I alternate my centerpieces, it really does give my room a whole new look. It’s so easy to switch them around especially depending on the season.
I’m a huge fan of jute or as some folks call it – rope. There’s something so beautiful about decor with jute. I’ve created a few other pieces with it so you know I’m a huge fan. I’ve decorated a Pier 1 Knockoff lamp and some beautiful mason jars, and now created a stunning braided jute centerpiece!
How To Easily Create A Stunning Braided Jute Centerpiece
You can easily make one too! There are so many crafting projects you can make with jute.
I decided to use a wider jute than I normally do, and I’m so glad I did. It was perfect for braiding – braided jute is simply beautiful, and you can make so many things from it.
I like using thinner jute on my other crafting projects but of course you can choose the style you prefer.
I started with two Unfinished Wood Planters Boxes and as soon as I saw them, I knew exactly what I wanted to create. All I had to do was take my glue gun and glue them together in the shape I had in mind.
I love the shape I chose below. There are so many designs you can create – even place them side by side.
Before you start the braiding process, be sure to cut the jute a little larger to account for the loss of size when you braid. Then make sure you use your glue gun to attach the ends – wait for the glue to dry and then start braiding.
Once you make your braid, just start gluing!
Keep adding your rows making sure you place the braids close to each other.
Finish off the edging with a single row of jute to add the finishing touches. Since I didn’t have enough room for another row of braids, I decided to take two strands and twist them together. I love how it turned out.
You can use some jute to decorate the top trim as well.
I love using artificial succulents for centerpieces. They look so real and can be very colorful.
I hope you get to create a beautiful jute centerpiece soon too. Jute is so relaxing to work with and very forgiving.
I love working with jute and have another project lined up soon that I want to try and recreate.
