First, crochet a very, very long chain base. If you don’t know how to crochet, you can use the yarn as it is, but it won’t have the same texture effect. You can also create a long string knitting. The chain stitch is the very basic crochet stitch, you can easily learn to watch this video: How to Make a Crochet Chain

Don’t fasten off, as you may need to make it longer or shorter.

Begin to glue the chain string to the top of the box. Be very generous with the glue in the first few rows. As those will be the most exposed to move. After the 3rd row, you can start using less glue, maybe add some pearls of glue with small spaces in between. If you decide to use lots of glue all the way, is also good.
