17. DIY: Easy Rope-Wrapped Candle Holder
‘Isn’t it great to find a use for something that you would otherwise have thrown out? Everything here is made up of what you would have considered ‘junk’.’ Sounds awesome! Let’s have a closer look at it. You will need painter’s tape cardboard core – or any tape core really, jute rope – or any thick rope of preference, paper tape, twine, hot glue and scissors. First of all, cover up the inside of the tube with paper tape and cut up the excess. After that, you can start wrapping around it with the rope, don’t forget to hot gluing every few inches. Then just cut the rope at an angle parallel to the wrapped tube when you get to the end. Your next step is to take your twine, braid it, and hot glue it on the edges of the tube like so. Finally, place your candle in the middle and you are ready.
