An old salad bowl can become an adorable planter with this tutorial from huntandhost.net. Using painter’s tape mark off where to drill holes to accept the new rope handle. Start with a smaller bit to make a pilot hole and go back with a 5/16″ bit to finish it out. Now take off the painter’s tape and paint the bowl with as many coats as you need. Then use a wax sealer carefully. Next thread six lengths of jute twine and knot the inside end. After braiding the twine thread it through the other hole and knot that end. Read how to decorate it with decoupage in the source.
