I love finding ways to update things I already have, making it feel like a brand new piece of decor. My impulse is always to spray paint something to give it a new look and while I absolutely LOVE to spray paint just about anything, I recently considered a new approach.
I decided to give the plastic baskets a new, natural look using some rope that I picked up for my garden ( to tie my creepers ). The baskets I used was one I already had but It was black and didn’t look nice in my bathrooms at all !
All you need for this DIY upscale is a vase, jar , basket anything to cover , rope, and a hot glue gun.
To begin, flip the jar upside down. Begin gluing the rope at the base of the Jar . As you wrap the rope around the vase, apply a dot of glue about every inch and press and hold the rope in place as you glue. As you get toward the top of the jar , you will need to flip the jar on its side and then right side up to continue wrapping
Here is mine :
When you reach the top of the jar , cut off the remaining rope and glue the end in place. To keep the end of the rope flush with the top of the jar , cut off any frayed pieces at the end. I braided it into a plait and stuck it to the top .
I love the texture that the rope added to an otherwise boring multipurpose holders .
Let me know how yours turn out !!
