This simple DIY planter project using rope will give your old weathered planters new life. With just a few materials and steps, you can upgrade any old plant stand you have lying around at home into a stylish and modern decor piece. Let’s do it!
- Any old metallic plant stand you have at home
- Rose gold metallic spray paint
- Thick cotton rope
Step One: Spray Paint Your Plant Stands
Let’s start this project by spray painting our old plant stands using a rose gold metallic paint.
Step Two: Spray Painting Tips
Before you start using your spray paint cans, it’s very important to shake them until you hear a rattle after mixing it for about one minute. To prevent clogging, shake the can during the paint process as well.
Step Three: Letting the Plant Stand Dry
Now that we’ve spray painted our plant stands, let them dry for a few hours (or overnight) making sure they are completely dry before we start adding the rope.
Step Four: Add the Rope
Grab your cotton rope and untangle it to add it to the painted plant stand.
Step Five: Secure the Rope
Start by making a knot on the interior side of the planter to secure the rope. Wrap the metallic stand with the rope, covering the upper base entirely. When you finish covering the base, finish it off with a single knot.
And there you have it. Now you’ve got yourself a very stylish DIY outdoor or indoor planter that you’ll love all summer long!
