It had been a while since I crafted, so last week I decided it was time to make something new and exciting. I had pinned a few things on Pinterest that I wanted to make, and I just had to choose which to make first. I settled on a bowl..made of twine.
This took me maybe 3 days total due to laziness, losing my glue, and allowing some of the twine to dry before I added more on. All in all this craft was crazy easy and I love it! Since the bowl is somewhat delicate, I decided to put dried rose buds in it for an elegant look.
All you need for this craft is a large bowl, some twine, fabric glue, saran wrap, and scissors. You will also need some patience, and perhaps a glass of wine..this is quite the classy craft.
Everything is fairly self explanatory, you will wrap the bowl in saran wrap and then cut your twine different lengths to cover the bowl. I poured my glue out onto a plate and got each strand of twine wet with it, and then wrung it out with my fingers. I put my twine in all different directions, and the bottom looks completely different from the sides.
Note: When you’re done adding the twine, let the bowl sit overnight to fully dry before attempting to disconnect the twine bowl from the original bowl. Mine just popped off.
Once I started this craft, I was worried it would be another three month project, but was jazzed that it only cost me three days. I had plenty of twine left, but not enough patience to make another bowl. I’m one of those, “make it once and love it forever” crafters.
After showing one of my friends the outcome she was frothing at the mouth to make one, and I gave the rest of my twine and glue to her. She made a bowl in one night! I get just as excited when craft items get used up as when food gets used up. NO WASTE!
