Place the pot on the kitchen counter to make it easy to work with. Of course if you have a work bench or green house they work also. Starting from the bottom of the garden planter, begin gluing on the rope, keeping it nice and tight. Just glue randomly, every few rows or so. Keep going all the way to the top.
If you want to possibly use this pot like this then don't put the concrete directly into this pot. Use the utility bucket instead so you can use this rope covered garden pot for other purposes later.
Take the bucket and cut the top off it if sticks over the flowerpot opening. Mix the concrete right into the bucket. It took a whole bag for this one. Stick the legless tree with pole right into the mixture. Cure over night. The add the top pieces of the tree with the branches on them.
It makes an artificial tree look real. Now you get to trim it. Good Luck Everyone!
