Disclsosure: As a part of the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew I am provided with products to complete projects. I have not received any other compensation and all opinions are my own.
I’ve been pinning away over on my Pinterest boards (you are following me, right?) but I haven’t been doing anything with them. It’s time to bring back Pin it & Spin it and get those pins off our boards and into our lives. Join me on the first Monday of each month and you can link up your completed projects here on Desperately Seeking Gina. This month I’m prepping our covered deck for summer by pretty-ing up my flower pots. I’ve been painting them and covering them with twine and, of course, filling them with fun succulents-they happen to be the only kind of plant my non-green thumb can handle. Twine wrapped flower pots are a quick and easy project that can spruce up any space and will last all summer long. Click through to see how I made them.
The Pin: These Rope Wrapped Pots
The Spin: While I loved the look of the rope wrapped pots, I was trying to use up supplies I had on hand and I didn’t have quite enough rope and twine to cover my pots all the way up. After I had covered them I decided that I liked them better when the rope wasn’t painted. I decided to paint the pot instead.
- Flower pots (I used a mix of new terra cotta pots and some metal flower pots I had from last summer)
- Twine and/or Rope (I’m using a combo of both from Canvas Corp)
- Multi-surface glue (using Aleene’s Ultimate here)
- Paintbrush (I’m using one I’ve designated for glues, it gets and stays sticky)
- Paint (I’m using Tattered Angels Decor & DIY Paint in Chamoise)
- Foam paintbrush
- Paint the rim (inside and outside) of the flower pot. Allow to dry.
- Brush on the glue, use a goodly amount that you can stick the twine/rope into. Paint glue on a little at a time all the way around to ensure it doesn’t start drying before you wrap your twine.
- Wrap the twine/rope around the pot, pressing it into the glue.
- Repeat brushing on the glue and wrapping the twine.
- At the end, snip the twine and secure with a final bead of glue. Allow to dry.
I ran out of rope for the metal bucket but no matter! I ripped up some Canvas Corp printed fabric and tied around the top.
I filled my lovely new twine wrapped flower pots with some fun new succulents I picked up and I’m in love!
Isn’t this lovely just gorgeous? I’m loving the buttery yellow Decor & DIY paint from Canvas Corp. I want to repaint everything.
