Two of my favorite materials are sisal and jute. They are both inexpensive and versatile. Plus, they add a natural, coastal look to the home.

Sisal has a rough texture. It’s stiff, so it’s best used for items that will undergo a lot of wear and tear (e.g. cat scratching toys and area rugs).

On the other hand, jute has a soft texture. It’s flexible, so it’s best used for items that will get less wear and tear (e.g. baskets and purses).

There are plenty of DIY sisal and jute projects that I love, but I’m only highlighting a few. Here are some of my favorites:
