Interchangeable Twine Wreaths!

Hi! I’m Rebecca from Hugs are Fun and I am so excited to share my first project with you!
Interchangeable Twine Wreath

We’ve lived in our house for over 2 years, and I’ve had the same wreath up the entire time. I love the look of the yarn wrapped wreaths, but wrapping a new one for each season just hasn’t happened for me. So when I decided to make a twine wrapped wreath, I wanted to come up with a way to make it interchangeable so the base could be used again.
Stone Twine
I chose to use the Stone twine because I wanted a neutral background. I love the white and gray blend and it adds a really neat effect when wrapped onto the wreath. Wrapping the base was a long process, it took a few hours, but it’s very mindless work so put something on tv and just get into the groove.

I made a few of these felt flowers using this tutorial from Lia Griffith. When I got to the step to glue the circle onto the back, I added a few pieces of twine in between the circle and flower.

This allows you to tie the flowers onto the wreath and it blends in with the twine that’s already wrapped on it. I knotted it and tied a bow and it feels very sturdy.

I am very excited to have a new spring wreath and I’m glad it’ll be easier to change it for the next season!

 

An ‘All-Star’ Day!

Hi Twinery Fans! Christine joining you today and I am so excited to be here sharing my very first project!  I have long been a fan of The Twinery and one of my favorite things to do is to use a variety of colors to create a rainbow of sorts.   Being a mom with three sons I love to embellish with stars and am constantly looking for new ways to create and showcase stars.  Today I have a card to share with you that shows off some hand-stitched stars.

To create these I used a paper piercer and did the five point stars just like we draw but I poked holes for each of the tips.  This isn’t going to produce a perfect star but I wasn’t going for perfect I was going for more graphic and freestyle.

I started in the center with the blue one and built out from there – knowing that I needed six stars.  Almost all of them overlap another star.  I then just embellished with some cork stars and sentiment stickers.

Here’s the colors I used:

Make a pretty macramé spine on your journal

Hi!
Katarina here today with my first blogpost as a 2014DT.

I have been on this time once before, and I am thrilled to have the possibility to be on this team again. It´s one of my all time faves :)
This time I’m going to share with you a video that I made, using Solid Caribbean, one of my new favourite colors of all time. I loved the  original caribbean when I got my hands on it, but I love this one a lot… I did this cute journal, and I really love how the spine of this journal turned out.

If you want to learn how I did this spine-binding… check out my video just click on the photo :)

Sail out to Sea

Hello friends, Jennifer here with my first post for The Twinery – I am so excited!  :)  I know I’ve been inspired by all I’ve seen lately and have a new idea or two about how to use this wonderful twine!

 I’ve been having a lot of fun lately with hand stitching (I bought a little machine with my Christmas money but I’m still intimidated by it!)  I got these great little wooden buttons from Studio Calico a month or two ago and decided to thread one up!  I used Caribbean solid twine and a big embroidery needle to thread up this cute little anchor.

For the card, I used several coordinating patterned papers and a journaling card to build the card.  I embossed the rope frame image and stamped a nautical sentiment to go with the theme of the card.

Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Twine Wrapped Eggs by Amy

Hello everyone, this is Amy  here to share a spring inspired project with you using bakers twine from The Twiney and some plastic eggs.  I found some plain white eggs in the Easter aisle at a local store and thought that they would be fun wrapped up in the lovely pastel bakers twine colors from The Twinery.  I love how they turned out.

I made them by wrapping twine around them, starting at the smaller end.  I first made a spiral of twine between my fingers and then adhered it to the top of the egg with some tacky adhesive.  I then continued to put some tacky glue on a little at at time and then wrap the twine around until it was over that section of glue.  I then added more glue and continued to wrap like in the picture below……..

I will admit that it took more time and patience than I thought it would when I got started, but I love the end result.

Here are the bakers twine colors I used on my eggs:

I hope you have a great day!!
