Turn a plain pot into a custom creation with this easy DIY make.


1Gather your tools and materials

Below are all of the tools and materials you'll need to complete this project.

2Heat up the glue gun

Allow the glue gun to heat up. Lay out pot and rope end, ready to begin gluing at the base of the pot.

3Apply glue at the base of the pot

Wearing gloves, apply a line of hot glue around the base of the pot and carefully roll the rope over the glue. Continue working your way up the pot with glue and rope until the entire pot is covered. Once at the top, cut the rope and secure the end with glue. Leave to set.

4Plant up your pot

Once completely dry, pull away any dried glue on the outside of the rope. Then plant up the pot with your choice of plants!
Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
