Rope-Wrapped & Painted Pots!

I wrapped rope around some cheap terra cotta pots and added a touch of left-over paint! The result is a cute outdoor centerpiece! See tutorial for full details!
Need some texture and color for your outdoor table? Try these easy rope-wrapped and painted terra cotta pots!
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $15 Difficulty: Easy
I started with a simple terra cotta pot!
Starting at the top, I used my glue gun to attach the rope.
I finished up wrapping the pot with rope. I snipped the rope off with scissors, and secured it down with hot glue.
Using left-over turquoise latex paint from another project and a standard paint brush, I painted the base of this pot.
Perfect outdoor centerpiece!

    I love them even plain! They have such a rustic, yet artistic look and so simple to do.
