How to Make a Rope Wreath

posted on November 21st, 2014 by Laura Ellis

Rope wreaths are great for all times of the year. They add a quirky, nautical mood to any room, and a wonderful sense of seaside nostalgia.

We’ve put together a step by step guide for you to create your own rope wreath – we’ve added a red ribbon as a finishing touch to take this nautical favourite into the festive season.

 

You will need:
Natural looking rope
Foam board or cardboard
Hot glue gun
Red ribbon
Large plate (roughly 12” to draw around)

Begin by plaiting together three strands of rope – try and have your rope as long as possible, you can always trim off the excess. If you do run out, don’t worry, you can join more on.

Then draw around the plate onto your foam board or cardboard. Mark roughly an inch around your circle and draw a larger circle. Using your scalpel carefully cut out following your two lines so you are left with a ring.

Using a good amount of hot glue secure the end of your plait to the foam board.

Gradually begin to wrap tightly around the foam board ring to neatly cover it.

Try and wrap as tightly as you can to cover up the foam board.

If you run out of rope, join another piece by using the hot glue gun onto the back of your wreath and continue to wrap.

Secure the end with a touch of glue. Tie a big ribbon bow on the top and you’re done.
Now hang up your wreath so everyone can admire and congratulate you on your handiwork!

A Christmas Market Guide

The temperature has dropped, the evenings are darker and lights have started twinkling. Although we do have a slight longing for a sunny, post-work beach swim, there’s something about this crisp time of year that brings out our inner childish Christmas glee. Read the rest of this entry »

This year’s theme, ‘Heroes’, is inspired by the heroic acts of ordinary people when placed in extraordinary situations, with particular reference to the First World War. The lights will be lovingly carried by professional artists, accompanied Cornish school children as well as local community and youth groups. Read the rest of this entry »

Have You Made Your Cake Yet?

posted on November 14th, 2014 by Laura Ellis

This week has seen some of the more organised Seasalt staff get busy in the kitchen making their Christmas cakes.

It may seem a little early to start the festive favourite but traditionally the cake should be ‘fed’ a few tablespoons of alcohol (or tea) every few weeks prior to icing it. This ensures the cake has lots of flavour as well as keeping it rich and moist. Read the rest of this entry »

We Love Boats

posted on November 6th, 2014 by Laura Ellis

Maritime life plays a huge part in who we are. We take our inspiration from the sea, from seaside towns and people who spend their lives on the coast. We can even see the sea from our Design Studio.

Being based in Falmouth means we are heavily influenced by the boats in around the Fal. For hundreds of years Cornish families have made their living dredging oysters in the Fal, with many of the traditional boats being made here in Falmouth. Unique Seasalt Falmouth Yacht Dot Print

Throughout the summer months many of the working boats can be seen racing through the waters, taking part in regattas around Cornwall and the rest of the country. It really is a spectacular sight to see the boats racing in full sail. Read the rest of this entry »
