I always wanted to connect rope and concrete together and this project seemed like a perfect match for it. Even though from the first look these door stoppers may not seem to be practical, trust me they are! First of all they are heavy enough to keep the doors in place, so no more door slamming. They also look pretty, so you may want to add them to your home accessories collection and finally they are easy to make, so you don't need to spend a fortune to have one of them. Sounds interesting? - then keep reading to find out how it's been made...

Step 1: Supplies

Here is what you need for this project:

  • 1 meter of rope or very thick twine
  • galvanized coupler x 2
  • tape
  • moulds: milk or juice box + one round plastic container
  • concrete mix of your own choice

How does one go about sanding concrete? Any special grit or type of paper needed? I've got a week off of work coming soon and I'm looking for projects. I might have found one.
<p>Did you use white concrete powder or painted them white?</p>
<p>It only looks white, in the matter of fact it's more like light grey.</p>
<p>Looks awesome and totally useful! (my only prob is I am sure to stub my toes on them...haha!) Love them! :)</p>
<p>Love these! I think I'm going to make one!</p>
<p>Good idea!</p>
<p>These are so nice looking. Great idea :D</p>
