Cement knotted rope PB knockoff


Hello friends I hope you’ve been well.  Is it just me or is time going faster than usual? I can’t believe it’s the middle of May already!!! what?   I’m really enjoying this beautiful weather right now because it’s not too hot or too cold. But I also want summer to come and enjoy some time with the kiddies. Specially our oldest as he’s leaving to university this fall. It makes my heart drop a little each time I think about it…:(
But I’m also so happy that he gets to pursue his dreams of being a vet. :)
cementknottedropepbknockoffcraftberrybush-2 Speaking of summer, today is my first summer post as I join my friends in this hop hosted by my sweet friend Krista.  Don’t forget to check out the other summer crafts at the end of this post…:)
My craft today is a knock off of THIS PB knotted rope.  It was so easy to make and though it doesn’t look exactly like the original, I kinda like the irregular surface of the ‘cement’ balls I made.
Here is what you need:

cementknottedropepbknockoffcraftberrybush-11 Air drying clay
White and black acrylic paint
Hard bristle brush or toothbrush

beaded rope
1. Make a small ball out of clay
2. Insert brush or dowel to create a hole in the middle of the bead.
3. While still on the brush handle, create texture with a hard bristle brush or toothbrush. (I used my potato brush)
4. Allow beads to dry for 24-48 hours.
5. Mix white and black paint 5:1  . Paint bead with gray
6. Paint bead with black and quickly wipe off with damp cloth.
7. Allow to dry.
cementknottedropepbknockoffcraftberrybush-10 Take the rope and make a knot at the end. Feed bead through the rope and tie another knot and repeat with all the beads.


And there you go !

You can skip the paint all together and create a white beaded rope. That would look just as pretty…:)
I really like how it turned out and now I’m inspired to get the rest of the house ready for summer.  cementknottedropepbknockoffcraftberrybush-4 cementknottedropepbknockoffcraftberrybush-6

    Love the “concrete” beads, what a creative idea. The earthy, organic, not perfect shape of the beads just adds to their charm. I’m already thinking of possible variations – turquoise with a rusty glaze in the pitted areas, charcoal with white, virtually anything with a “stone” look – the sky’s the limit. Thanks so much for sharing this. Looking forward to future post.

    This is my first time visiting your blog (I hopped from Thistlewood Farm’s Link). I had to comment, though! I so feel the need to make summer count this year because our oldest is off to college this fall, too! She is starting community college (only 15 but she’ll be 16 by fall). She, too, has hopes to pursue vet med so we are excited she is getting to begin that. God’s grace has been on her life in this area, from a small child, so we are waiting and watching to see what He will do as she follows him. She’ll still be coming home every night, but after all these years of home schooling, having her off on her own schedule in her educational journey will be different for us.
    Best wishes to your son as he starts university! And to you. May your summer be happy and memorable.
