Love of Jute Part 2 {Jute wrapped bowl}

The day I created my Ballard Knock off-Jute-glassware, I was on a roll and couldn’t resist the urge to Jute something else.  Just so happens a plain glass bowl was within reach after my recent goodwill trip.  Add a tube of E-6000 and some Jute string and we have the makings of Love of Jute project number 2, just seconds later!

As you can see it is simply a simple glass bowl.  I started by smothering som E-6000 around the bottom of the bowl leaving an uncovered space so the bowl would set evenly on the table.  Then I simply began wrapping the jute string around and around keeping it as close as possible to the previous row.  The key is to keep some tension, but not too much.  As I wrapped the string, I came behind with my other hand and smoothed over th already layered string to avoid weird bumps and ensure that the string had enough adhesive.

Keep repeating the steps above until the bowl is completely covered.  I used one long continuous string, and just tucked the end under a previous row so it didn’t fray or stick out.  When I completed the bowl I rubbed my hands over the entire bowl to smooth out any rough spots and to help ensure that the adhesive was working.  It’s importantly to let the adhesive dry for a full 24 hours to ensure the best results. I kept the bowl upside down while drying.

Then add some fun newsprint fruit from Michael’s (In the clearance section at 90% off, can you believe I got these fruit for 9 cents each)?  And complete your table setting with an Ikea carousel, Salt & Pepper shakers, softened spreadable butter dish, some common family spices in fun mason jar shakers (we keep Lawry’s Seasoned Salt & Cinnamon & Sugar in our family favorites) some fun colorful napkins to accent the other colors in your dining room, and a fun doily to match the shape of your table to bring everything together.
