This could also be a Thrifty Thursday too, because I'm recycling a fruit can!!
Rope can be found in any hardware store, discount stores and the big box stores too.
It comes in many thicknesses, but in this project I used 1/4 inch thickness.
I just love the natural texture.
You can cover anything from boxes, containers, jars, cans or frames. I used hot glue to attach the rope.
This is a large can that fruits or veggies come in.
I do have one side note...I used a metal can to decorate, because we use the can opener that cuts the can open from the side, under the lid, so the remaining can edge and the lid are not sharp.
I bough my opener at Ikea...love it!! Just have to get use to using it in a totally different way.
To begin, start at the bottom and glue a 2-3 inch segment.
Continue all the way around. You don't have to glue all the way up, just every so often.
Keep on going!! It does go by fast.
See? Easy Peasy...
Add a little plant.
Pencils on your desk...
or scissors on you craft table.
I've seen rope items in catalogs and they are pricey. I'm thinking other things can be covered too...
- coasters...this will be next using the lid from the can I opened for this project
I'm also going to "try" to master the technique for this little beauty. I'll keep you posted if I ever start this one !! Lol
Have a great Tuesday!!
