Behind the Rope, Please
These are the materials that you will need for this. The stakes came in a package of about 30. These need to be thick, heavy stakes. Mine are pine, which will weather nicely, but will also rot quickly. You can also get cedar stakes (but they might be harder to screw into). The rope that I used is a sisal 1/2". The way that I attach the rope to the stakes is with copper pipe straps and zinc 8x1/2 screws.
Cut the amount of rope that you will need to get around the plant that you are making it for. I always make it a little bigger so that the plant has room to fill in. I attach the rope about 1/2-1" from the top of the stake. The two ends of the rope are overlapped and attached under one of the copper straps on one of the four stakes. Once the rope is attached to all the stakes, the stakes can be hammered into place around the plant with a rubber mallet.
