Rope Wrapped Chain for a Porch Swing

There's nothing better on a summer day than to sit on a screened porch and swing. This project takes less than an hour and adds such a pretty touch! And the best thing more pinched fingers!
The time is here to sit on those swings on our porches...with a sweet tea in our hands!
And to take your chain from this...
to this...
All you need is this! And a ladder and a hot glue gun. This project takes less than one hour, but is a really pretty detail!
Tie a knot at the top of the rope and begin wrapping the chain.
Tie another knot at the bottom. I then added hot glue to the knots to secure them.
And now the swing is ready for swinging...with no pinched fingers!
