Etceteras: I {heart} twine

I made these twine and rag garlands for my little shop and decided to also share them here because honestly, I have a mild obsession with all things twine.

This is a great way to use up the tiniest bits of scrap fabric. Simply tie your scraps onto the twine and it instantly changes the look.

I made garlands using pink, blue and multi tones. These would be nice to hang in a child’s room to display precious artwork and photos. 


There are lots of uses for this twine. Wrap it around a pin board or use it to wrap a gift. 

Twine is so versatile. It’s no wonder we in the crafting world have an ongoing love affair with the stuff.



Don't forget, tomorrow is my second link party.
I can't wait to see what you've been creating!

Etceteras: branch spools

I still have some branches left in our yard trimming pile.


I’ve made several projects with them including this photo holder and wood tacks.


I love the texture of these branches and wanted to use them for a new project. I came up with these branch spools for my twine.



I sawed sections of the branch into ¼ inch slices. I used a hand saw because I haven’t mastered power tools and maybe never will.


I glued a dowel to the inside of the branch slices to create a spool.


 Pretty decorative spools that combine two of my favorite things - natural wood and twine.
