Items Used: 1 package of Twisted Manila Rope, 1 Empty Coffee Can & 3 Empty Tuna Cans
With a little patience & a lot of glue gun sticks, all you need to do is wrap & glue, wrap some more and continue to glue as you go around the can. Keeping the rope pushed as close to the glued section before, it will create a beautiful rope pattern. This look reminds us of the beautiful thick, woven plate chargers that sell for about $10-$19–$25 a piece. Maybe we need to make some to match (because even $10 each charger is way too much for our frug-elegant ways LOL)!
The Rope we used was the store-brand from the local hardware store which is not available online. To give you an example, here is a “Twisted Manila Rope” with the same description. We LOVE the colors in the twisted rope. It’s a rustic chic that reminds us of Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware, that will work perfectly for our Frug-Elegant outdoor decor. Up cycling cans that would’ve gone into the recycle can.. even better! For 3 small & one larger plant container, it cost us under $10 to make all 4 containers (does not count the plants). Plus, succulents were on sale & are extremely affordable in our area AND, they use less water & are so easy to maintain!
