Begin to coil the rope around the center, applying glue each round and pressing it down until the rope is secure.
When you’ve covered the wood entirely, do the same thing along the rim of the tire. You’ll want the flow from rope-on-wood to rope-on-tire to be seamless.
Flip the tire over and continue gluing the rope down until you reach the other wooden board.
Once all of the rubber is fully covered in rope, use your scissors to cut it. Glue this end of the rope down securely. You don’t need to cover the other portion of wood because it will be face down!
Use your brush to paint a layer of sealant over the rope. Allow it to dry, and then apply a second coat.
Once your sealant has fully dried, you’ve got your very own rustic, homemade ottoman. You’ll be all ready to kick your feet up!
