Twine Vase

This was my project for the dollar store round at So You Think You're Crafty.  Dollar stores are not usually a place I go when I am looking for craft supplies.  After a couple of trips, during which I spent almost as much time cleaning up after my children as I did searching for ideas,  I came up with this twine covered vase.

I've seen rope bowls around, and I liked the idea of tweaking that to make a rope vase, but unfortunately all the rope was bright red, blue or yellow. I did find a nice neutral twine.  And there were lots of different glass vases to chose from.

So I got the twine and the vase and after wrapping and wrapping and wrapping I ended up with this pretty vase for only $2 {plus I don't know how many gluesticks}. This is a great project to make while watching TV.  Just be careful not to burn your fingers with your gluegun.

Week 2 voting is up.  Two people are leaving this week, so head over and vote.  I'd be thrilled if you voted for my project.  I can't tell you which one it is, but I'll give you a hint: my project number is somewhere between 0 and 11. Kay, go vote!

I like the twine better than rope - a little less chunky, a little more refined. super cute!
