Remember those Rope Baskets I made a few months ago? Well, I have a lot of materials left over from it. Go figure. I decided to use the surplus rope and string to take my boring clay pot planters to a whole new level. A few of my plants were our growing their homes, so I replanted this leafy succulent into a fancy new pot.
I love clay pots for plants because they absorb so much moisture after watering, keeping the plant insulated and cool from this sweltering summer heat. Oh, and they cost peanuts. Fo real.
This project uses the same principle as the baskets. Just wrap and glue. Wrap and glue. Tie a little colored string in, then wrap and glue some more…
Nothing wrong with that! Your very own designer planter. The good news about rope is that by its very nature, it handles dirt and water very well. So no amount of potting or watering will destroy this plant’s new sturdy home.
I’m thinking I need to make a collection of these. Which means I need to run to the nursery for more plants. Hmmm….
