No Sew Rope Basket

Turn a roll of cord or rope into a decorative basket with nothing more than a glue gun with this easy guide.

What You Will Need:

  • 15m (14yrds) Thick Cord or Rope
  • Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
  • Bowl or Bucket to Shape the Basket

Start by forming a flat coil to act as the base of your basket. If your basket is oval instead of round, start with a straight piece and form a coil around it.

cord coil

When the coil is the same size as the base of your bowl or bucket, place the coil on the overturned bucket and begin gluing the cord together and wrapping it tightly around the bucket to provide a template for the shape.

Continue gluing the cord together until the basket is the height you want. Remove the bucket template from the cord and your basket is complete.

optional handles

Add leather strips or short pieces of cord as optional basket handles to complete the project.
