Hemp Rope Banner

_dsc5867Hemp rope  banners are very simple to make and can be made in any color combination or to celebrate any season.  All that is required is a length of hemp rope, scraps of material, ribbons, tuille, lace, hessian, etc.  We do recommend using a decent pair of cutting scissors though, because it can take some time to cut out sufficient strips of material.

Our length of hemp rope measures  3 feet long, and the strips of material are roughly 12 inches long and 2 inches wide.  We used material found in a second hand shop, interspersed with lengths of white tuille and hessian ribbon.  Don’t worry about cutting the strips of material neatly, jagged and frayed edges and ends merely add to the ‘country’ feel.

Attach each strip of material to the hemp rope with a lark’s head knot.  We advise starting in the middle of the rope and working outwards along each side until the banner is the width you require it to be.  Tie an overhand knot at each end of the rope and hang the banner in your chosen position.  Easy peasy!


Tassel Wall Hanging

We adore the richness of the colors of all of our different sizes of tassels, but we decided to use just a few of the vibrant blues and purple shades in this project, with some peach and white for highlights.

To make the wall hanging you will require:
1 dowelling rod
Natural hemp twine*
Silver thread
Lengths of ribbon of different colors
7 large tassels*
6 x 1 1/2 inch tassels*
10-12 silver charms*
4 pink pompoms*
 Thread natural hemp twine through the large tassels with a wool needle, tying the ends with a reef knot and then pulling the knot through the tassel top so that the knot is hidden.  Attach the hemp and tassel to the rod with a lark’s head knot and tighten.  Repeat this exercise with both large and small tassels.
Choose ribbons that match or co-ordinate with the tassel colors, attach to the rod with a lark’s head knot again.  Pull the ribbon to tighten the knot, a process which may have to be repeated more than once as the ribbons easily become loose.
Choose a selection of your favourite charms and attach with silver thread.  This wall hanging includes charms representing nature and the outdoors.
To finish, tie a length of natural hemp twine to the ends for hanging and attach two pink pompoms to each end.
Hang your wall hanging in any room in your home, but it will also look lovely hanging out of doors on a warm summer evening with a gentle breeze blowing through the ribbons and tassels.
