Let's Get Started


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.


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


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.


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

B)    Continue wrapping until you reach the top.


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

B)    Glue the loose end in place.
