Today I'm sharing with you a project I discovered on Pinterest from The Gilded Hare.
It looked a really easy craft - and I had all of the supplies: hot glue + rope. Combining the two creates a great bowl or a container.
I started by coiling the rope and using the hot glue gun to keep it coiled upon itself.
As the coil grew larger, the glue began to show, A LOT. The original blogger didn't really mention how to prevent that from happening.
The next step was to begin the coiling upwards.
I hate how much the glue was showing! I tried using less glue - but the rope wouldn't stay coiled.
At this point - I knew it was a lost cause. This looks absolutely terrible. I could have kept going - but why? So I can have another ugly craft? Not this time. I gave up.
If I could do it over again - I believe using much larger rope it would be more successful. Redoing this craft will definitely go on the back burner. I'd rather do something with glitter.
