My Reward for Cleaning My Kitchen – a small DIY woven rope vase

It all started this morning when I decided to give myself the incentive I needed to start some deep cleaning I’ve been putting off….so I started with my sink area.

I saw an idea for adding a pedestal to your sink area for your dish soap, etc. I just happened to have one I made.

I glued a round piece of glass I had to the bottom of a small bowl. I’ve been using it in other places. I had this thick round piece of glass I got at a flea market one time, but a wood round would work, maybe even the plate from an old microwave.

Then I cut a placemat to fit it. I had a plastic hand soap dispenser I already made and cleaned off the label on another one.

Of course, I just had to add some small transfers I found at Dollar Tree just because.

Then I was ready to start deep cleaning……

My kitchen is now clean! Yay! So my reward to myself was creating this little boho woven rope vase!

I’ve been seeing similar rope vases all over. In fact, I could buy one for $50 from this vendor. Or…. I could create one myself, which is so much for fun and cost saving, too! 🙂

I saw this woven rope idea and tutorial on Pinterest.

I had already spray painted a little red glass vase I had with metallic gold paint.

The rope was from a Dollar Tree mop head I cut apart. I used 15 strands of it and hot glued each strand side by side from bottom to top, laying the vase on its side to work. Then I separated the strands into groups of 3 and wove them over and under (spot gluing ever so often to hold them in place) until I got back to the beginning. I cut each group of 3 even with the beginning edge and hot glued in place.

Whew! Oh! And my clean kitchen. Here you go!

Now, for a late lunch and a much needed rest before I tackle another room. 😂
