A couple of days ago I showed you my Christmas Corner Cabinet and on the door I displayed a twine star.
Several weeks ago I purchased an ugly metal star at Tractor Supply for $4.99. The only reason I bought it was that it was a great deal. I knew I could jazz it up with a coat of spray paint! Krylon’s Classic Gray gave the star a new look. I liked the gray but I still didn’t care for the wire detail around the outer edge.
It looked so much better but I decided I could do more! If you look all over the web you will see twine covered objects everywhere. I grabbed some twine and my hot glue gun and got to work wrapping…wrapping…and more wrapping…
For the points of the star, I began at the top of each section of the star. I followed the lines of the “v” applying a small amount of hot glue as I worked my way down. I tried to apply the glue only on the back, but it was necessary to apply it on the front when I had to “shape” the twine to fit the lines of the star.
I did each section of the star separately then I began working on the outer edge of the wall art.
I added a bow made from my black and red check Christmas ribbon and instantly it became part of my Christmas decor. The best part is that I can remove the ribbon and use it all year in my home.
What do you think? Leave me a comment letting me know if you like twine covered objects. Have you made any great “twine transformations” lately?
