ALL tied UP!
Transform a simple string of rope into eye-catching homewares
Clean tyre and allow to dry. Place a cake board on one side of the tyre so it covers the open hole. Use a drill and screws to attach the board to the tyre at three points around the edge of the board. Repeat 2 on opposite side of tyre. Using the hot-glue gun, apply some glue (the size of a 10-cent piece) in the middle of one of the boards. Working quickly, attach the end of your rope to the glue. Once the glue has dried, start coiling the rope around itself, applying glue to the disc as you go. Ensure the rope is flush 3 with previous coil. Once the top of the tyre is covered, flip it upside down and continue coiling until the sides are covered. There’s no need to cover the bottom of the tyre with rope as it will be on the floor. Top with a tray and use it to display magazines, flowers or knick-knacks.
