Hemp rope is an item many crafters use to make a variety of items. There are several items that people can easily create out of hemp rope, many of them requiring knots and beads to complete the project. Hemp rope crafts can be very basic as well as very complex.
One popular item that can easily be created by hemp rope is necklaces. These necklaces are made using thin hemp rope and by tying knots to create the thick design of the necklace. Oftentimes, beads are added to these necklaces for dimension and color. A necklace is a great starter activity for someone who has not used hemp rope previously. Hemp necklaces can take several hours to create, depending on the complexity and length of the necklace itself.
For a person who enjoys the simpler things in life, a hemp ring is sometimes the perfect alternative to a band of gold. This a quick hemp rope project that can be completed fairly quickly. Using simple knots, a person can create a thin hemp rope ring. The ring can be accented with beads, if desired, but remember that the ring must also feel comfortable on the person's finger, as well.
Another easy hemp rope project is a key chain. Using a basic metal key ring, a person can use six yards of hemp rope to create a great accent item for her keys. Consider using beads to help decorate this fun and easy project. Key chains can easily be created using the square knot technique with hemp rope. This is a sturdy key chain that will help a person mark her keys for years to come.
For a person who has been using hemp rope for a while, a dog toy is a more unique project that he can dive into. Using a thick piece of hemp rope, a person can tie knots on either end of the long piece of rope. The toy can then be used a chew toy, or an item to play fetch with. In addition, dogs are drawn to the natural earthy smell of the rope, so it will help keep his pet occupied for long periods of time.
