Painted Rope Baskets

Sew a rope basket using the tutorial link and instead of stitching it with colored thread, use white or cream colored thread. When you’re ready to paint, squeeze large dollops of colored acrylic paint onto a disposable plate. Use a 1/4″ flat brush, to apply paint and create a pattern. 

It helps to mix a bit of water into the paint to thin in out, making it easier to apply onto the textured rope. Paint horizontally, along the rope and then vertically to get in between the creases.

I like starting by creating a single motif and then repeating it on the left and right of the original motif.

Then go across the basket, centering the opposing motif and working left and right. Eventually your opposing patterns will meet, making the overall basket look symmetrical.

Use them to hold plants, skeins of yarn, throws, etc. If you decide to put plants in your rope baskets, make sure they drain of water completely before inserting the planter into the basket.
