These fun knots are perfect as favors, place cards, or as table accents.

Materials Needed:

  • Clothesline is the just the right thickness for these knots, is inexpensive, and is widely available at hardware stores.


  1. 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.
  2. Bring the tail through the loop, and then pull taut. A neat-looking figure eight knot.
  3. Trim each end of the rope to the desired length.
  4. Personalize the knots by cutting strips of paper, writing guest’s names on each one, and notching the ends to keep with the nautical feel.
  5. Use glue to adhere the tags onto the tail ends of the knots.


 Knot Napkin Rings

  1. Use a longer length of rope when making the knot and hot gluing the ends together to form a circle.
  2. Slide a napkin through the ring and tuck a name tag inside for an instant table setting
