Jute has been around since the 17th century and we’ve used it for many things…mainly to tie things off or other functional purposes.
But, if you’re a DIY’er you know that jute is a much loved commodity in the world of DIY projects. The tutorial I’m sharing with you today is a prime example of some of the cool things you can make with it.
Lamp shades, organizing boxes, coasters, macramed hangers, and a whole plethora of incredible items are covered and created by using jute. Believe it or not, people even crochet with jute! I saw some cute Christmas ornaments that were crocheted with jute.
I love the things she does in this tutorial. The projects she does makes me think of Mexican folk art and that is right up my alley of favorite decor items. I love that she paints the jute embellishments in bright colors and attaches them to these jute creations. The little birds she attaches, after winding the colorful yard around them is just the icing on the cake!
And let me remind you that jute is also a great craft item to use to do crafts with children. All kinds of fun childrens crafts have been done using jute.
