Today, I will be showing you ten things to do when you have old or overused rope.
Use old rope for hanging tree swings or any other kind of swing.
You can tie a "Monkeys fist" knot as seen in the picture below. If you want to tie this there are many places on the internet you can find instructio...
You can also practice tying knots with old rope, below are a few knots for example
Another way to reuse rope, if you have a pet, is to make a collar/leash combo.
You can also make a bracelet or necklace by burning the two ends of the rope together.
A rug is very easy to make with old rope, you just need to burn the rope together on both ends and places in the middle.
Just like a rope, a coaster is very easy make with rope using the same method as
Tying various knots in the rope makes it a sort of dog toy. The monkeys fist knot can also be a good dog, and even cat, toy.

Hi A L.Most ropes are made of polypropylene, the same plastic that is found in plastic drinks bottles, fleece jackets etc. If you heat the end of two polyprop ropes with a flame, they burn, and melt. These ends can be pushed together and the flame blown out creating a "welded" join.
Finishing a single rope or cord end this way can be made much neater by pressing the flat of a knife against the molten end so it solidifies flat.
WARNING! Be extremely careful, the molten polyprop drips burning particles and continues burning. Keep your body parts and clothes well away from that (don't do it over your lap, for instance). Also the gas given off from this is noxious. Well ventilated areas only please.Stay safe ;)
