Using craft glue coat the plastic thrift store dish.  You don’t want to use hot glue because it will dry to quickly.  If you use craft glue you have a little more flexibility with movement of the cording. 
Starting at the center of the dish begin coiling the laundry cording. Continue to wrap the neon thread around the line as you go.  Do this until you have covered the entire dish. Use clothespins to help hold your clothesline in place along the edges as the glue dries.
