Shabby Jute Rope Christmas Tree

I found one thing this morning to make with the big roll of jute I found at an estate sale… a shabby jute Christmas tree. It took me about 1 1/2 hours to make.

My little tree stands about 7 1/2” h x 7 1/2” w.

I was inspired by a tutorial I saw come up on Pinterest. My jute was a little thinner than the tutorial so I adapted it some.

I used a 10” skewer from Dollar Tree but ended up cutting several inches off when finished. I also used 5 – 3” pieces 3 -2” pieces and 3 – 1” pieces of jute instead of what they did. I also used Dollar Tree Super GluecWood Glue on the wood round stand and on each stand of jute as I built it.

Then I just kept building.

Here it is pictured next to this cool sign I also thrifted. Sure wish I had could have created that, but sadly, no.
