Make a nautical looking lamp

What you will need:

  • Old Lamp
  • Jute rope
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors


  1. Pick an old lamp that needs some sprucing up. But do not use a lamp with a plastic base.
  2. Measure how much rope you will need with a tailor’s tape.
  3. Begin wrapping your rope at the back or your lamp base, where the power cord is exposed.
  4. Using your glue gun, stick the rope in one continuous ring around the entire base of your lamp until you arrive at the top.
  5. Remove any excess rope with sharp scissors.
