This rustic style little pot is made from wooden pegs and looks like a mini barrel. Use it for storing a variety of things. Who would have thought that a pile of pegs and a bit of string could look so pretty?


  • 1 lid of an aerosol spray can
  • 6 to 8 wooden spring pegs (depending on the size of your lid)
  • garden string
  • 8 large holed beads
  • strong all purpose glue
  • scissors to cut the string


  1. Remove the springs from the pegs by twisting.

  3. Don't throw the springs out they can be used for jewelry making.
  4. Apply plenty of glue to the lid and arrange the pegs around it with the rough sides facing out.
  5. The pegs will slip around on the glue so immediately tie string around to hold them in place.
  6. Leave to dry and then tie the string in bows.
