Last week, b introduced me to another holiday to add to my list: Star Wars Day, also known as 5/4, where everyone delivers good cheer by spreading the message, "may the fourth be with you." This now is only my list of other awesome days of the year, such as March Fo(u)rth (the only day that is a sentence), 10-4 good buddy (trucker talk)... noticing a pattern? These days are all on the 4th!
There is a diy project in here, I promise.
The magic number four is all you need to know for making these roped up numbers.
I wrapped up simple rope I borrowed from work with embroidery thread using your standard hair wrap technique (I was never one of those cool girls who came home from spring break in Florida with a hair wrap, but I digress).
1. Knot your choice of embroidery threads around a rope.
2. Pick your starting color, keeping the other threads alongside the rope.
4. Wrap the thread behind the rope, bring though the four, and pull tight.
6. Once you section of the first color is long enough, put it back with the other threads and pull out another color and keep wrapping/knotting away. Tie all the threads around the rope and double knot when done.
Once I had enough wrapped rope, I tied it into a chain sinnet , glued the open ends together, and wrapped it up with more thread. Take that anthropologie!
PS: For the hot pink one, I hot-glued on bead caps to the end of the rope and attached to a chain.
