Get ready for spring with this simple DIY No Sew Rope Planter Basket project! All you need is cotton rope clothesline and a hot glue gun. You can add some embellishments using trim from the fabric store.

Learn how to make this No Sew Rope Basket! Perfect for any home. Add a plant or use as a catch all or decor piece.


  • cotton clothesline rope
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • trim from fabric store
  1. Find a bowl that is the same dimension of your desired basket. Then start glueing the rope together using hot glue gun. Be careful as the glue is hot. Wrap the rope, glue. Wrap the rope, glue.
  2. Once you glue enough of the rope in the circle pattern and it is a bit larger than the bowl, start layering the rope on top of itself (see video). Continue the wrapping and glueing until your desired height.
  3. Once you have finished the basket, glue the end of the rope to the end.
  4. Add embellishments like fringe, braided rope and pom poms using a glue gun.

Add a plant (like this maiden hair fern) for a pretty spring decor piece!

    Hi: When you started this project basket, how did you keep the coiling from folding inward, did you use a form to place inside to keep the coiling equal so it didn't fold in or unenly? Thank you
