Skills Required: Beginner. You can accomplish this project even if you don’t have much crafting experience. You’ll be using a hot glue gun and acrylic craft paint.


  • Clay pots or mini buckets from Dollar Tree
  • Rope/twine
  • Craft paint – regular or multisurface
  • Painter’s tape


  • Paintbrush
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors


  1. Glue the end of your rope to the bottom of your pot, making sure to apply hot glue all around to hold it in place.

Wrap the rope around the pot, gluing periodically to keep it tight and affixed to the pot. Repeat until the entire pot is covered from top to bottom.

For the top part, make sure to apply hot glue all around to secure the rope and keep it in place. Snip off the end of the rope with scissors.

Paint your preferred design on your planter. You might need to do a few coats of your design. Let dry.

Peel off the paint's tape and snip off any stray fibers from the rope to clean it up. Your planters are ready for plants.
