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!
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!

    They are lovely! Did they hold together when the Terra Cotta plant was watered, over time I mean....?
