For my rope pot I used rope that I had purchased at the home depot. My rope was 3/4 inches in thickens and I purchased 7 feet of it.. It was about 2 inches to short but, it ended in the back so I was ok with that. 😀 (note to self.. Bring the can to home depot with me next time.. 😀 ) I started hot gluing my rope on the backside of the tin can and worked my way up. Then I simply secured it at the top and that’s it.
