As Boojum and other outdoor companies run rock climbing and ropes course programs year after year, we go through a lot of rope. Once we can’t use a rope for climbing anymore, we might cut it up to use in our teambuilding games or for projects around the warehouse. Even after that, we just have so much sitting around that it is likely soon thrown out, destined to sit in a landfill for years. Since there are so many cool things you can make with rope, we thought we would share those project instructions with crafty folks looking to make unique and useful items while also being conscious of their environmental impact. Each Upcycled Crafts Kit comes with all the rope and other supplies you’ll use to make the craft plus a detailed instruction sheet.
The Rope Rug Kit comes with a retired climbing rope, weaving template, and detailed instruction sheet. This kit is a fun activity to make a useful, stylish, and unique accessory for your home. Creating the rope rug requires brief use of a lighter and scissors or a sharp knife. Adult supervision is recommended for these aspects of the project.
