For 25 cents I found this trash can, bin, something….at the thrift store and decided to make it into a nautical trashcan using sisal rope.
I’m so excited to be back with our monthly thrift store finds with all my favorite blogging friends!
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
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 just doing some quick math based on the thickness of your rope and the size of the canister you are covering.
Basically just glue, wrap, glue, wrap, repeat repeat until your fingers are raw. (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.
Next time I’m at target I’ll pick some more up, I have more plans using this rope!
