Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @kellyh2. It's brilliant to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about seagrass and rope planters.


We have a guide on How to make rope pots, and you might like to also check out How to make a macrame plant holder and How to make a kokedama plant hanger.


There isn't one for the seagrass mat planters, but they are SUPER simple to make. You simply fold over the bottom third of the mat and loop cable ties through the sides every 5cm to hold the folded section in place. I've made all these projects before, so if you have any questions or need advice and assistance then I can provide further information.
