So I have an affinity for all thing nautical! Having worked aboard cruise ships and thus meeting my hubby while on one, I really love certain details and touches that remind me of those fond memories which is why I made these Nautical Knot Tie Backs!
So yes we have a nautical themed guest room and bathroom and this is one of those touches that is really easy to do and makes your home special!
Let me start by saying nautical knots are really pretty! They each obviously serve a very important purpose but I really like seeing a knot and trying to figure out how it was done. And rope for the most part is something we have lying around, so why knot put it to good use? I suggest using rope about a 1/4 inch thick…nothing too stiff. Natural fiber rope works best.
I decided to put this figure eight knot around guest towels but you can put it around pillows, use as tie backs on curtains or around baskets. There are lots of items in every room that could easily have a little detail added…like on the backs of dining chairs…now my wheels are spinning! hmmm! Be sure to show me how you incorporated a nautical knot into your home decor! I love seeing inspo! Instagram #IamAhostOfThingsToo
Since knots are easier to show in person, I’m going to leave it up to my At Home Show video I made for HSN to teach you how to make this one! And just so you know, nautical knots make really cute pretzels out of dough…I’ve tried that before and it works, just have to be patient!
