Upcycled SucculentPosted on Nov 15, 2023 11:00:00 AM by Samantha Taylor
This upcycled succulent container makes a perfect homemade gift for anyone artsy. Wrapping the twine around a curvy container can be a bit tricky, but with a little patience you’ll be rewarded for your efforts (and with a little supervision, children can help make this present for Mom).
MADE BY: SAMANTHA TAYLOR | TIME: 15 MINUTES
LEVEL: BEGINNER | FINISHED SIZE WILL BE DEPENDENT ON THE SIZE OF THE CONTAINER
- Craft Dots™ Dot N Go®
- Small Glass, Plastic, or Metal Container
- Real, Paper, or Plastic Succulent
- Place Craft Dots™ Dot N Go® all over your container. I made straight lines of Glue Dots® all the way down 4 sides of my container (make vertical stripes of Glue Dots). If your container is a bit larger, you may need more than 4 stripes.
- Place the end of your twine directly on top of a Glue Dot at the top of your container. Slowly wrap the twine around the container, pressing down firmly every time the twine overlaps a Glue Dot.
- When you get to the bottom of your container, make sure the cut end of the twine finishes on a Glue Dot. Push down firmly to secure the end.
- Add a real, paper, or plastic succulent to your new upcycled container.
Craft Dots™ Dot N Go® are the perfect adhesive for this project because they stick to twine, glass, plastic, metal, ribbon, and just about anything else you can think of. Since there is no drying time, you don’t have to rush to beat the clock, so you can take your time while wrapping your container in twine.
