Make A Nautical Trashcan With Rope

Hello friends, hope everyone is doing well, today the thrift store team is back and sharing our first thrift store makeovers of 2021! For 25 cents I found this trash can at the thrift store and decided to make it into a nautical trashcan using sisal rope.

Supplies:

Trash can (used or new whatever you can find that is cheap)
Hot Glue & Glue Gun
Sisal Rope I found mine at Target for $6.00 but you can find it here at amazon 

Directions:

I highly suggest you measure how much rope you will need before you start or buy extra as you will see in the tutorial what happened to me. Sisal rope comes in many different thicknesses, so I suggest doing some quick math based on the thickness of your rope and the size of the canister you are covering.

Glue, wrap, ahdhere, glue, wrap, adhere… repeat until your fingers are raw. Just kidding but seriously, this is the easiest project ever but I would suggest wearing gloves as sisal is very rough.

Wouldn’t you know it, I ran out of rope, seriously!  No way was I going to drive to Target for 1 thing so I decided I would hot glue and wrap some pretty burlap and lace around the top.

  1. Excellent! I have two silver mesh ones in my boys room, and really, what was I thinking – who wants to see their trash? I’ve gotta disguise it now with this great idea, but maybe no lacy top huh?

    1. Definitely no lace top for the boys. Mine is in the boys bathroom but since I have a trash bag in it they can’t see the lace. I better get to the store soon to get more rope before they find out.

  2. I have worked with that rope and hot glue before, ouch! It’s not easy.

    I love how your nautical trashcan turned out. You got a deal on that thing!

    Way to go to add the lace when you ran out of rope–I’ve been at the end of my rope lots of times, and it’s not fun!

    I’m so happy to be part of the team!

  3. Wow, when I started reading the post I wasn’t expecting the trashcan to originally be the quintessential black wire office trash can. It looks completely different!

  4. I have one of those trashcans in my office and I hate it because you can see inside. I know what I’ll be doing with it this weekend!
