DIY Striped Rope Baskets

I'm very keen on these DIY rope baskets featured on Martha Stewart Living's tip of the day yesterday, and seen in a recent issue of the magazine. A lot of the projects featured in the pages of Living are far beyond my novice crafter's skill level requiring tools and supplies regular, non-Marthas just don't have on hand, but this one is fairly simple and requires only a few basics. With planting season around the corner, many of us will have a surplus of empty plastic pots to use as the basket forms and the cord is only around $5 for a 48' spool from Jamali Garden.
