  1. Using the Dot n’ Go. roll Glue Dots® All-Purpose Dots all over your container. We made straight lines of Glue Dots® all the way down 4 sides of our container (make vertical stripes of Glue Dots®). If your container is a bit larger, you may need more than 4 stripes.Upcycled Succulent Container-001
  2. Place the end of your twine directly on top of a Glue Dots® All-Purpose Dot at the top of your container. Slowly wrap the twine around the container, pressing down firmly every time the twine overlaps a Dot.Upcycled Succulent Container-002
  3. When you get to the bottom of your container, make sure the cut end of the twine finishes on a Dot. Push down firmly to secure the end.Upcycled Succulent Container-003
