Fresh Look: twine vase

Fall ideas are starting to pop up here and there and although in my mind it’s still “flip flop” season, I’m trying to think ahead for fall décor. One idea I had was to make a textured vase with twine and paint.

I made two vases but decided to leave one of them unpainted.

Twine Vase CollageI’ve seen a lot of projects where the twine is wrapped horizontally around and around the object but I decided to place my twine vertically. I cut several strips of twine and using Mod Podge, glued them on one by one.

Once the glue was dry, I trimmed the twine at top edge. 

This vase is the unpainted version. I liked the natural look of the twine.

This vase is spray painted giving it a completely different look.

I like both versions – what do you think? Painted or unpainted?
