Coconut rope craft – There are several types of coconut that can be taken from coir and processed into various handicrafts from coconut coir. For business purposes, coconut trees have huge business potential. Starting from small businesses such as selling handicrafts from coconut fiber to exporting coconut craft.

Coconut coir is one of the natural fibers that can be processed into several handicraft creations. The making process is not difficult to do. You just need perseverance, patience, and thoroughness in making it.

What is Coconut Rope Made of?

Coconut coir is part of the blanket or protector of coconuts in the form of crude fiber. The thickness of each coconut husk is different from one another, depending on the type of coconut. Generally, coconut coir used for crafts is taken from old coconuts. The old coconut one has thicker and more sturdy coir.

The reason coconut coir can be processed is because of the content of coir fiber and coir powder. These two ingredients are the main ingredients for handicrafts from coconut coir. However, before being processed into crafts, coconut fiber will go through a cleaning process and so on so that it functions better.

Coconut rope is commonly known as Coconut Coir Rope. That is a rope produced from coconut coir coils that are strung together and held together to form a tight rope. The reuse of coconut coir waste to make a rope through several processes in an effort to increase the economic value of processed coconut products.

The fiber for the manufacture of cocorope or coconut rope is made from coconut coir which is processed in such a way with a coconut coir decomposing machine to form separate coir fibers, also known as coco fiber. The fiber is reprocessed by twisting it manually or by using a coir spinning machine.

Make Lampshade Decoration Crafts Using Coconut Rope

For this project, you will only need a few items:

  • Lampshade (new or old)
  • Coconut rope
  • Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks

Rolls of coconut rope can be found at most hardware stores and large box stores. Coconut rope sometimes has a strong odor. I suggest unwinding the rope a little and letting it air out for a few days. The smell will dissipate after a few months anyway, but if you’re sensitive to smell, it’s best to ventilate the area first.

Let’s start making our coconut rope craft lampshade. Locate the back seam of the lampshade. This is where you want to start. You can start at the top or bottom of the shadow. I chose the bottom. Apply about 3 inches of hot glue along the seam and press the coconut rope into the glue. It is important that your first row lines up exactly with the seam and that the seam is not visible under the cord.

All other rows of thread will depend on how accurately you glue the first row. Some people ask if hot glue will melt the heat from the lamp. This shouldn’t happen unless you’re using too much power for the size of the shadow. This shade measures 16 inches in diameter and contains one 75W light bulb. If you are covering small chandelier lampshades, you can always use high temp hot glue rather than regular hot glue if the temperature is a concern.

Continue wrapping the coco rope around the lampshade, gluing as you go. Notice the end of the roll of coco rope. If you are nearing the end, simply cut the cord so that it lines up with the back seam. Here you will again start with the second roll of coco rope.

Finish gluing the coco rope, finishing with the back seam. Was it easy? In no time, you’ve created your own custom coco rope shade that will add interest, texture, and softness to your countertop decor! Think of other shades you could try, like mini chandeliers or a drum pendant. How cute would that be? You are only unlimited by your imagination!
