You can easily make your own nautical DIY anchor art with this neat technique. Here we used an anchor as the shape but you can actually do any shape that you love. The rope gives the art a beachy feel that will look great in a bathroom or even at a beach house. Take 30 minutes or so and make your own version for your home today.
- Darice DIY Wood Pallet Sign
- Navy and White Craft Paint
- Darice 0.20″ Jute Rope (two packages)
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
- Paint Brushes
Start by painting the pallet sign with the two colors. Make each slat an alternate color. I used one very light coat on my piece. That way some of the wood shows through and gives the piece a more rustic appearance. Allow this to dry completely before continuing.
Print your shape from the internet. I did an anchor as shown below but you can choose another shape if you wish. Cut around the shape using scissors. Then put it on top of your pallet sign and trace around it with your pencil.
There may be parts of your DIY anchor shape where you need to cut the rope and start again in another area. Keep working the rope around the shape until it is completely filled. You can also use small cut pieces of rope at the very end to fill in any gaps.
What an easy way to make art for your home that will really stand out! The navy and white stripes are the perfect touch to this art piece. Plus the rope really finishes it off with that nautical look. Will you make some DIY anchor art for your home?
For another nautical idea, make this anchor canvas decor.
