Step 1: wrap rope with a piece of tape (this will keep rope from fraying when you cut)

Step 2: Cut rope so you have a secure end

Step 3:  This is what your end will look like

Step 4: Secure end of rope at bottom of craft bucket with a little hot glue

Step 5: Wrap rope around bucket, securing it in several places along each wrap with hot glue.  One or two places with hot glue will be enough to keep it secure.

Step 6: Continue wrapping & gluing until you reach the top.  Repeat steps 1 & 2 for a secure end.

Step 7: Fill with fresh flowers in the colors of your theme and you have a beautiful nautical centerpiece!

DIY tip: craft buckets are not water tight, so place a glass container inside to hold water for your fresh arrangements
