Place the end of the rope in the middle of the non-stick rug pad and apply hot glue to adhere it in place. Hold it down for a minute to secure it while the glue dries. Make sure you are working on top of a poster board or cardboard because the hot glue will drip through the rug pad.
Coil the rope around and apply hot glue underneath the rope to hold it in place. For the first few coils, you will need to hold the rope securely in place, pinching it together to keep it nice and tight as the glue dries. After a few times around, the rope should stay in place. Continue coiling and gluing the rope until you reach the end.
