Twine Wrapped Pottles
REUSE, RECYCLE, REPURPOSE!
Turn your Anathoth Farm chutney pottle into a lovely keepsake – you only need a few materials and half an hour later you’ll have a new home for your favourite cacti or succulent!
What you’ll need:
- 1 Anathoth Farm Pottle
- White string
- Hot glue gun
- A thick embroidery needle
How to make your twine wrapped pottle:1. First, wrap your pottle with twine. Do this by using a small amount of hot glue around the base of the pottle, and carefully stick down your twine – be careful not to burn your fingers! When the twine has been glued around the base, continue wrapping – you shouldn’t need any more hot glue until you reach the top.
2. Tuck your twine underneath the lip of the pottle, cut the twine, and glue the end of the twine down.
3. Now it’s time to make your tassels – do this by taking a 7cm thick piece of card, and wrap the white string around it about 30 times.
4. Take a 15cm piece of thread, thread this through the middle of one end of the loop you’ve created. This is where your embroidery needle will come in handy! Tie it off tight – this is how we’ll hang our tassels.
5. Remove the loop from the cardboard, take a pen (or something similar in width), and put this through the middle of the loop at the end where you’ve just tied off. Use another 15cm of string to tightly tie underneath this. Remove the pen.
6. Trim the other end with scissors, and you have a tassel! Make 5 or 6 of these. Thread the string at the top of the tassel with the embroidery needle and thread it through the top row of twine, tying the tassels off with even spacing between each one.
7. Hide where you’ve tied the tassels off by finger knitting about 20cm of twine – you can also plait or braid.
8. Attach this to the top of the pottle with more hot glue, and you’re done!
Fill with your favourite succulent or cati and enjoy!
