DIY | easy rope planter12.01.2015
can you believe it's december 1st already..? yikes. I'm heading out to buy our christmas tree tonight and I'm pretty damn excited about it! I have a few festive DIY's in the pipeline but I thought I'd share a quick project from the summer that's been hiding out in my photo archives.
it's super easy and involves plants again.. I know. sorry.
this was a very quick makeover of an old pot that was a little discoloured and damaged. it was the perfect size for my fig tree so I decided to give it a quick fix up using some old rope!
tape one end of the rope to the bottom of the pot and start applying the glue around the sides of the planter. I worked from the bottom upwards covering the pot with glue as I wrapped the rope around. snip the rope off at the top and glue the end down to finish.
once you've left it to dry you can start using it- easy peasy huh? I think this would look even better with thick jute string but I didn't have enough to cover a pot this size!
this is a really simple way to change the look of old pots and you could even paint on geometric patterns with fabric paint to jazz things up..
what do you think?
