An old popcorn tin doesn't have to die a wasted death in a landfill. There are many ways to reuse things we already have in our home, and this planter was a the perfect solution for me. The winter themed tin had sat in our living room for several years, hidden behind a chair. And since I've been eyeing some basket planters on Amazon for a few months, I decided to create my own using this old popcorn tin and some sisal roping.
Here’s what you’ll need to create your own Natural Fiber Planter:
Old Popcorn Tin (or any tin you’d like to make into a planter)
75ft. Twisted Sisal Rope (3/8in)
Hot Glue Sticks
How to Make a Repurposed Popcorn Tin Planter:
- Begin by making sure your tin is wiped clean of dust or residue. This makes a better working surface for the hot glue. Warm up the hot glue gun and open the sisal rope packaging. Begin at the bottom of the tin and glue the end of the sisal rope to the tin. (See above image.)
