Twine Wrapped Vase


The use of twine is an easy and quick way to add texture and interest to any object. I also think that twine has a sweet quality - interesting in the fact that it is simple and natural. I am drawn to using twine in the same way I love the use of burlap. Both can be mixed with modern elements to add warmth to your decor.

I have been using an inexpensive, clear glass vase for the fresh flowers I like to bring home from the grocery store each week. I pinned this inspiration for a similar project and thought it would look great to use twine to add some texture to the glass.

Starting with a bit of hot glue at the bottom of the vase, I began to wrap the twine, adding more glue in intervals. Since I had three different colors of twine from a previous project, I decided to layer the colors - first natural, then brown and ending with a layer of pink. This took no time, I used supplies I had on hand and it is something I will use throughout the summer months. I can't wait to fill it with blooms from my garden.

Have a wonderful day!
