Nesting Rope Basket

 

What You'll Need:

Let's Do This!

STEP 1:

A) Cut the end of the rope to make a clean edge. Hot glue the end of the rope to the bottom center of a plastic container. Note: Plastic containers work best, as the glue will pop off easily.  

STEP 2:

A) Begin coiling the rope around the central starting point, hot gluing as you go.

STEP 3:

A) Completely cover the bottom of the container. Tip: Once it's covered, pop off the rope so it doesn't stick to the container.  

STEP 4:

A) Continue wrapping the rope around the side of the container, gluing as you wrap.

B) Continue wrapping until you reach the top. 

STEP 5:

A) When you reach the top, cut the rope.

B) Glue the loose end in place.

STEP 6:

A) Remove the rope basket from the bucket.

B) Paint a section of the basket. Let dry. Repeat this process to create different-sized baskets!

TA DA!
