DIY: Mini Display Bowls

Interiors Director Meg Crossley creates mini display bowls using cotton rope and colorful thread. 

Meg-Crossley-FeaturedImgAfter a recent trip to Portugal, I was inspired to create simple, nautical bowls with deep blue and green thread and creamy white rope. Wonderfully weathered ropes are scattered throughout the country’s seaside ports, and people have been weaving bowls with natural materials for centuries. This project is pretty simple once you get the hang of it, but it does take a few hours to finish a whole bowl. Set aside a lazy Sunday, put on your favorite playlist and take your time!
