.After thousands of hours working on a ranch, doing dozens of jobs all cowboys and ranchers know about, the lariat just loses its life and is tossed aside. What does a rope do then? Like many things, it is given a chance for a new life. Rod Judy has used a lariat to make this wall décor for you. The cross is made from 4 pieces of a brown lariat, 25 " long, which includes 9" of frayed fringe on the bottom and 1" at the top, and 9" wide, The pieces of lariat are secured together with a heat method, and the same method assures you the fringe will not fray any further. The fringe does show the natural rope colors of brown, green, and tan. The two pieces are then secured with a wire and decorated with a piece of deer antler in the center. A wire is hidden on the back near the top, for hanging.
