Pass the Kleenex (I am the person who calls all tissue "Kleenex". The power of branding.) because today would be the closing ceremonies of Courtney and my Super Summer Series. It has been so fun brainstorming Summer inspired projects around the house to share with you all. Today, to honor our last day of the series, we are twerking a Summer inspired DIY. Mine? I am so glad you should ask. A coil pot. Here they be. In all of their roped glory.
Modeled after these beauties from Anthro. I have had my eyes on these little babes for some time now. So I thought to myself, "Self. Why don't we fashion some of these?!" And I did.
Just a disclaimer. This photo was obviously shot before the DIY took place. Obviously. Ignore Liquid Nails and insert hot glue gun. Liquid Nails is so out for me. Sorry.
Rope - For the two pots that I made, it took 28 feet of rope.
Terra Cotta pots
Spray paint - Any color your heart desires
Hot glue gun - Remember Liquid Nails is dead to me.
Step 1: Once I ditched the Liquid Nails, this project was easy peasy. Take the end of the rope and secure with hot glue, at the top of the pot. Start working your way around and down the pot. Just securing under the rope all along the way.
Step 2: Now. I do not have a photo of this. But I actually taped sections of the coiled pot off to make a design and then spray painted from there working my way around. You could also spray paint the rope beforehand but that seemed a bit laborious for me.
Here is the big tropical coiled pot plant in her new home.
And the little girl filled with cacti and succulents. Finally, a plant I am not capable of killing. Also of note. If I were to do this again, I would have chosen a more magenta spray paint. The pink looks great in person, but not in pictures. Blends too much with the rope in photographs.
So there you have it. The last feature of the Summer Series. Just remember us by this:
Now I shall give you a sneak peek of what Courtney doctored up over on the West Coast. We must have both had botanical holding vessels on the brain. I tell ya. Great minds...
So with the close of one series, marks the start of another. Tomorrow I might add. Sheesh. Busy Summer around here. Get ready for it. It is going to be muy exciting. Muy. Loves!
