Materials: SOCKER plant pot, drill, metal file, sisial rope
Description: We couldn’t find pink metal sand pails for our beach party, so we decided to “hack” the IKEA socker plant pots! We simply drilled holes in the sides, and filed them down with a round metal file. Then we used some sisal rope, that fit the hole quite snuggly to create the handle. There you have it, a great sand pail that won’t fall apart after a couple of uses, and that matched our pink party decor!
