Handmade Holidays Blog Hop 2016

The Twinery is thrilled to once again be a sponsor of the Handmade Holidays blog hop! We’ve sponsored in the past and it has always been a great experience. This year, our designer Tifany is sharing some beautiful ornaments that she created using cut wood rounds as a base. These beautiful ornaments all use some form of paint technique (stencil, ombre, or both) and many have the addition of a little bit of bling in the form of sequins or buttons. And everything is all tied up with twine, of course! The ombre effect is not as […]

Halloween Banner

Are you gearing up for Halloween?  It’s just a week away!  We’re loading up the blog with fun ways to celebrate!  I was originally going to make a bunch of Halloween tags for treat bags to share today, but decided they were too cute to part with.  I mean… the kiddos are only focused on the candy right?  So I decided to string them on a banner to hang in my crafty room!  I used three strands of twine  – two Charcoal, one Solid Charcoal.  I  wanted the hanger to be strong because I know […]

Fall Napkin Placecards

Today I wanted to share these cute napkin ties that double as placecards for a fall meal: As I was walking through a craft store, those giant wooden buttons just screamed at me to make something with them, and I […]

If you love our Shimmer Twine, you won’t want to […]

Hi.

Hi. I’m so glad you are here!   It’s Tifany here and today I wanted to share this card featuring a few of my favorite things – mason jars and twine…and (stamped) flowers.  I love using The Twinery’s twine to jazz up real mason jars, and I wanted to give the same feel to this mason jar stamp. Rather than wrapping my twine around the entire card as I often do, I just pierced holes in the card around the rim of the stamped mason jar and threaded some Solid Lilac twine through the holes. I […]
