diy rope vases

9:00am Sunday, 18 Nov.

Knotting may have been de jour recently, but we reckon this crafty rope method is a whole lot more nifty-looking (that, and it doesn't bring back terrifying memories of girl scouts).

Lucy Folk is a pretty nifty choice as one of Ketel One's Modern Craft Experts. Electroplating everything from Doritos to clove buds in gold and silver, make sure you don't mistake them for a real snack and lose a tooth. Our insurance unfortunately doesn't cover that.

This fortnight's DIY comes in the form of prettiness to hang in your abode! These hanging plant holders are surprisingly simple to make and they're super cheap material-wise too. Click here for the steps.

If you've ever been down one of those dark web holes where you just can't go to sleep till you thoroughly investigate every baby goat gif or Ryan Gosling meme then you'll know the internet can suck the vitality right out of you. But the internet can foster creativity as well.
