5 ways with twine

The opportunities for creating beautiful makes are endless with just a bit of twine

5 DIY Valentine's Day Makes

Fruit art

Your love of fruits doesn't have to to be limited to eating them! You can draw inspiration from them and create artistic designs, too. We'll focus on making an apple, so gather red and white twine, craft glue, an apple template, a pencil and white cardstock. Outline the template onto cardstock, then begin adding twine using craft glue until you've completely covered the apple. Place in a glass frame if you'd like and hang it in your kitchen with pride.

Wrapped bottle

Don't throw out your bottles just yet! You can turn them into decorative pieces and dot them around the home instead. All you'll need to do is wrap twine around a bottle, ensuring that you use glue or Mod Podge to secure in place. Add embellishments such as buttons or faux flowers to jazz up your make a bit, and you're all done!

Twine-wrapped bulbs

If you're a fan of upcycling, then we think you'll love this project using old light bulbs. To make, simply wrap twine around a bulb, securing with glue as you go. Leave to dry, then make a few more to place around the home or put in a basket for a lovely centrepiece for your dining room table. For added interest use coloured twine to match your interior.

Storage boxes

We know the struggles faced when you've got lots of craft essentials and limited space! We've got just the solution though. If you've got a box lying around, cut off the top-half, if needed, then wrap twine, in one or two colours securing in place with Mod Podge. Cover the entire box, or if you'd like to go the extra design mile, adhere the twine in strips, then cover the other areas with fabric. Decorate as many boxes as you'd like, throw your stash in and watch how organised your craft room becomes before your eyes!

Upcycled mason jars

Wrapping twine around mason jars, and placing a battery-operated light in each will take any room in the home from dull to magical in no time. It's a simple project to whip up in an hour or two, and you can add decorative elements such as gems, glitter and ribbon for a more beautiful result.
