DIY Sisal Rope Containers

DIY Rope Containers

Hi! I’m Amber Anderson, I am a pastors wife, mom of 2 lovely boys, and an avid DIY’er. I post regularly about DIY projects, crafts and family life on, and you can find me and all my stuff over here!

I’ve been saving up formula cans for awhile now. I’ve known they would be useful for something, but I could never figure out what. I thought of a fun idea recently when I was inspired by this. Since I didn’t have an old tin bowl, I thought a formula can would work perfect! The ideas with sisal rope are endless, its such a great product to craft with.

 The tools: 

  • Formula can
  • Rope (mine is from Home Depot and cost about $5  for the pack)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

1. Hot glue rope to the bottom of the container to start your wrapping. Continue to wrap all the way up to the top.

 2. Once you get to the top, cut it off where you want it to end, and hot glue it in place. Make sure your really mashing the rope and holding it in place for a few seconds to get it to stick into the hot glue.

3. When you are finished wrapping the can, it will not have an even, finished look; so you will want to make a ring for the top. Once you have a ring that is the right size, hot glue it to the top of the can. (This takes some quick hands!)

Here’s how mine looked around my home:
