Today we have another fun + super easy DIY for your wedding day from our DIY contributors, Jessica + Garett over at Wednesday. Take it away guys!
Who would have thought using jute beyond the 1970’s could be so cute! These rope words are a perfect way to label your seats at your wedding reception or holiday table. They are also great for expressing thanks and love in wedding photos. This project is as easy as it is messy! Really, from start to finish this project took about 10 minutes.
Once you have all your supplies, prepare your working area by laying down the wax paper.
Next pick a word you want to scribe out in rope. Keep in mind that the longer the word the more flimsy it will be dried. Depending on how confident you feel with your freehand rope writing, you may want to sketch out your word out on the wax paper to trace your rope over.
Next mix the cornstarch, glue and warm water together in a mixing bowl until it’s not clumpy.
Begin feeding the rope into the glue mixture and allow the rope to be fully saturated by the glue.
Now it’s time to write out your word with the rope. Push down hard in the areas where the rope overlaps. You may also need to apply extra glue mixture to those areas to ensure the hold when dried. And that’s it! Once you’ve finished let your word dry on a hard, flat surface for 12 hours.
A Just Hitched would be a cute prop for photos and the Mr and Mrs words are perfect for the back of your chairs. And there are lots more ways to use this fun DIY! I’d love to hear any other ideas you came up with for this one in the comments. Happy crafting!

Such a cute idea! I’m definitely adding this to my project list for the weekend! I wonder if initials or something like that would be cute as a cake topper?! Or even table numbers?
Ohhh Ally! I love the idea of using this as table numbers. Brilliant!
This project reminds me of school crafts I had as a kid! SUPER CUTE! Might be adding this to my decor for our BBQ reception next spring! Lovely.

I added some food colouring to the glue mixture to stain the words to match my wedding colours! Super cute
Did you have a problem with the rope sticking to the wax paper?
OH! Thanks so much for this! I am researching ideas for a Cowgirl party, and was a little nervous about using wire and rope.. this is much much easier! I’m so excited now!
Love this. Can’t wait to do it for my own upcoming wedding! Quick question: does anyone know how this holds up (after it’s dried, of course) in the heat? Like, high 90’s?
