So I bought this rope off of Amazon last year, wanting to use it as piping around a pillow. When it came, the rope was HUGE. There was no way this rope was being used for anything. Since that time, the rope has sat in my sewing supplies stash just taking up room. I was tired of looking at it and pushing it aside, but loved the color too much to simply get rid of it. I needed to use this rope for something, gah.
Has that ever happened to you? Maybe with a fabric that you purchased on-line?
Well, finally this past weekend I thought of the perfect project to use that cute thick rope cord.
Jump Rope DIY
How to make a jump rope
Skill level – beginner
Time needed – 15 minutes
- 2 yds rope
- Masking, painters, or duck tape
Step One – Wrap tape around the end of the rope (loop is optional).
Step Two – Tie a piece of yarn to the end of your rope, where the type begins, leaving a 4″ tail yarn.
Step Three – Wrap yarn around the end of your rope, until you have covered the entire piece of tape. Cut yarn, and make a knot with the end and beginning yarn tail. Repeat for both sides.
And you are finished!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
