If you’re drawn to the coastal beauty of a nautical beach theme, the nautical rope detail on the Jute Heart Basket complements the seaside ambiance perfectly. Display it alongside seashells, driftwood, and other beach-inspired elements for a coastal retreat feel. Use it to store beach essentials like sunscreen, sunglasses, or shells collected during your beachcombing adventures.

Whether your decor style leans towards rustic farmhouse, cottagecore, or a nautical beach theme, this DIY Jute Heart Basket fits effortlessly into any of these aesthetics. Its handmade charm and versatile design make it a lovely and functional accent piece that adds character and a touch of natural beauty to your home decor.

Begin by painting the wooden heart with white paint. Apply two coats to ensure even coverage and a clean, crisp look. Allow the paint to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Once the paint has dried, it’s time to add the nautical rope to the heart. Using the hot glue gun, apply a line of hot glue around the top edge of the wooden heart. Press the nautical rope onto the hot glue, making sure it adheres securely. Go around the entire heart once with the rope, creating a border along the top edge.

Repeat the process of adding hot glue to the top of the nautical rope and attaching another layer of rope. Continue this process, going around the heart multiple times until you achieve the desired height for your basket. For a visually pleasing look, aim for around six layers of rope. Remember to press each layer firmly into the hot glue to ensure it stays in place.

Once you have reached the desired height, trim the nautical rope, leaving enough excess to go down the inside of the basket. Apply hot glue to the trimmed end of the rope and securely attach it to the inside of the heart-shaped basket. This will create a neat and finished appearance.

Allow the hot glue to dry completely before handling or displaying your finished Jute Heart Basket. Once dry, you can use it as a decorative storage basket, fill it with beach-themed accents, or use it as a charming centerpiece for a coastal-inspired table setting.

The Jute Heart Basket is not only a functional storage solution but also a lovely decor piece that adds a touch of rustic elegance and coastal charm to any room. Get creative and personalize it by adding seashells, starfish, or other nautical embellishments to further enhance the coastal theme. Embrace the beauty of natural materials and enjoy the satisfaction of creating a unique and handmade basket that brings a touch of the seaside into your home.
