“Tying the knot” becomes literal when you make these simple sailor’s knots to scatter around your wedding venue!
These fun knots are perfect as favors, place cards, or simply just as table accents. Alternatively, the knots can be turned into napkin rings by using a longer length of rope when making the knot, and hot gluing the ends together to form a circle.
Clothesline is the just the right thickness for these knots, is inexpensive, and is widely available at hardware stores. First, form a loop in the rope, as shown in the image on the left, and then bring the tail down in back, like in the image on the right.
Bring the tail through the loop, and then pull taut. Voila! A neat-looking figure eight knot.
Trim each end of the rope to the desired length.
