Diy Rope-wrapped Planters
We’ve had our new puppy for about a month now, and although she’s the cutest thing ever, she also loves to get into my plants. For that reason, I decided to repot my largest house plant into a taller planter (and added a plant stand). Hopefully, this will keep her from digging and leaving a rather large pile of dirt on our living room floor. Here’s how I made my DIY rope planter in just a few simple steps.See also:
What you need: Plastic planter, rope, Scissors, hot glue gun + extra glue sticks.
Step 1: Find a starting place along the top rim of your planter and glue the end of the rope.
Step 2: Wrap and glue the rope around the entire rim. Continue wrapping rope around remainder of planter. Be sure to close all gaps between rope by pressing firmly on glue.
Step 3: As you approaching the bottom of the planter, continue to wrap rope around the bottom edges. It will begin to spiral towards the center.
Step 4: Finish off by trimming the rope and glueing it directly in the middle. Be sure to close any gaps. You are ready to plant!
