twine garland

It's not as if garlands haven't been the hottest thing this this is not going to be a new idea. I've even posted a few garland ideas myself, like this one and this one.

What I wanted to show you was how awesome that eco-luxe twine is I'm using from The Twinery! Wow, I got my sampler pack last week and it's been sitting in a bowl on my desk waiting for me to pick it up and get down to playing!

Can you see how rich and true that color is? {It's called Maraschino, if you're wondering, and I wish you could have heard Isabella trying to sound out that word!} I have used other baker's twine and The Twinery twine is by far the loveliest of them all.

I used this tutorial from my Tumblr as a starting point, and instead of making ornaments, I made a garland to hang in our living room window. It just seemed so perfect today, as the snow had just started falling and hasn't stopped all day. The driveway is now covered in fluffy white stuff!

I spaced my "ornaments" every 6 to 8 inches along my twine, as you can see in the photo, and made two strands so that I could drape and overlap them. 

I did this art project with my daughters {ages 5 and 7} and it easily kept their interest until the last 10 minutes or so, then Mommy was on her own. Might be something fun to do with the kids during their school break. If you're wondering what other fun, creative and cool things you can make with baker's twine, visit The Twinery blog and see what the other Design Team gals have been busy creating!
