I have this nasty habit of playing search and rescue for abandoned and neglected plants at Estate Sales. Especially if they are cacti. Most times, the pots housing said cacti are less than desirable. Upon being given an amazing rope covered pot from Anthropologie by Jen, I knew I had to recreate the look on all my homely little salvaged pots. Follow along... you'll be surprised how easy this is!
|You will need a glue gun, an old flower pot, some jute twine/rope, paint and a paint brush.|
|Apply about a one inch length of glue along upper outside rim. You may want to apply a little glue on the rope to prevent fraying.|
|Make sure the last coil is glued tightly in place and that any frayed edges are glued and secure at the bottom. Also, try to make sure the rope along the bottom allows for a balanced sitting position for the planter.|
|Next, go crazy with the paint! I chose a simple, geometric, tribal print to spruce up the rope.|
Imagine the possibilities!
This project would be an absolutely great house warming gift! It's unique, personal and just simply adorable! Plus, succulents are pretty difficult to kill. Just keep near a window and water once a week!
