Materials: KLACK tray, 2 or more shades of sisal rope (about 50 ft. total), gardening twine, hot glue
Description: A variation of the penny tray idea– I really didn’t like that original whiteboard feel!
1. Starting with the outer edge, hot glue the sisal rope around the perimeter, working toward the center.
2. Once you’ve gotten about 6 rows in, at a corner, switch up the color of the rope if you want to. You could do all sorts of bold/thin stripes depending on the pattern you want. I liked a minimalist look.
