Sisal, Sisal Everywhere!

Have you noticed one of the latest trends is SISAL???!!!???

Well, I’ve fallen into its web of fascination, myself!

After seeing Laura at Top This Top That give an ordinary bargain priced vase (or vessel) a new life…..I was a goner!

I didn’t even know where to buy sisal til Laura taught me!! Thank you, Laura!!


I headed to my trusty Home Depot, picked up some and went to town!!

My first project was this oil decanter I found on clearance….love the shape but it needed a little “somethin, somethin”…..


…..sisal around its neck… a scarf!

Then I had some burlap covered balls I found on sale that weren’t in really good shape so I gave them a facelift……


…….Sisal balls!

Next, I had these two glass jugs we picked up on our Grand Canyon trip a couple of years ago from the Grand Canyon brewery.  After the brew was gone, they sat in my pantry for a year!


I liked the shape but didn’t really want “Grand Canyon Brewery” sitting on my counter, so…….


……Sisal covered Jugs!

They’ll be perfect for our fall “post wedding” party with a pretty burlap bow and filled with flowers or even a candle!

All of these projects were simple and easy.


All you need is a glue gun and a little time, depending on your project.

My cost for all three projects, around $12 (which is the cost of two bundles of sisal, plus I have some leftover)!!

  1. Very cute, Ang! I am old enough to remember when we used it for things like wine bottles wrapped with it as candle holders. lol I love the looks but it makes me SO itchy I can’t touch it. xo Diana

  3. So pretty, Angela! I love the sisal balls! Fabulous idea!

  4. What a great idea! I’m loving the sisal! Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof

  5. You’ve been busy! I covered a vase with twine and it took me about 3 hours! They were much thinner and I used different colors which added to the time. I won’t do that again but I’ve definitely considered sisal. These turned out great!
