I almost feel silly putting this on the blog it is such an easy thing to do. I have been shopping for planters for the patio we are sprucing up this spring. Planters are expensive or at least around here they are. I saw a beautiful ceramic planter from Pottery Barn. It is very pretty and $159.00. It gave me the idea to try and make one.
It was so easy and took about 30 minutes. I bought a cheap plastic pot at Dollar General and a package of natural rope at Home Depot. They sell white nylon rope and I thought about getting it to try since it would look more like the Pottery Barn planter but I liked the natural rope. I might try a smaller planter with the white nylon.
The rope was $8.00 for 50 feet. The pot was $5.00 and is 16” wide. One package of rope was not quite enough, I needed about 12 more feet. I had to go buy another package of rope but I have oodles left for another project. I used hot glue to start the rope and then switched to Gorilla Glue. Since the Gorilla Glue foams as it cures I use hot glue on the top of the planter so I wouldn’t have to worry about foaming showing through. You could use hot glue for the whole thing but it will take a lot of glue.
So here is my super easy and fast project.
