CREATIVE CHALLENGE – DAY TWO

ROPE CONTAINERS

I don’t know about you, but being a creative type, I can NEVER have enough storage to put all my bits and bobs in. And there’s just something about the texture of jute rope that is really great (must be the love of the beach I have). So why not cover a bunch of stuff in rope and twine to create pretty storage containers?! Yes, why not =)

You will need

✚ Empty tin or other container (I used a baby formula tin)

✚ Natural rope or twine

✚ Hot glue gun or other strong glue and more patience

What to do

Step one ⋙ Make sure your tin is nice and clean

Step two ⋙ Use the glue gun to stick one end of the rope to the bottom of one side of the tin

Step three ⋙ Wind the rope around and around the tin, going up toward the top (You can do dots of glue along the way to make it super secure, but you definitely don’t have to, it should stay in place pretty well on it’s own)

Step four ⋙ Once you reach the top, trim the rope to fit and glue the end to the top edge or rim of the tin, and you’re done!

You can add twine and tie off for more texture if you want to
