Wrap With Rope

Unfurl remainder of sisal rope from spool, keeping each rung tight against those above and below it. Once you reach the actual mailbox, continue to wrap up and around its sides, but leave the front of the mailbox door exposed.

Add Hot Glue

While wrapping sisal rope at the area where the post meets the mailbox, it's likely that some of the rope will become unruly. If so, use hot glue gun to secure several rungs of rope together, keeping them from moving around.

Create a Knot

Once mailbox is completely wrapped, tuck sisal rope along bottom of mailbox, then create a tight top knot.
