I am so very happy that Spring has arrived with plenty of sunshine, flowers and butterflies. As of yet, the heat, humidity and bugs have not settled in so all is good with me. And it got me to thinking, "Monika, you really need to replace those grapevine balls you have in those holders with something a bit more cheerful."

So I did.

Much better, don't you agree?
The process from blah to Twinery-riffic is simple.
:: Pick your two favorite colors of The Twinery twine, I used Caribbean and Lemondrop
:: Start rolling your styrofoam balls with Twinery baker's twine until they're fully covered in cuteness
:: Place in holders, or a vase, or a bowl, or...
:: Notice the smile on your face just because you added a bit of twine and a splash of color to your home

And I couldn't stop there. I made more. And they're mini-sized. I happen to think they're adorable and I have a bunch of them, in a wide array of colors, displayed on my craft desk. But, wouldn't they also be cute in a clear vase or hurricane, too?

I seriously don't know how looking at that twine all day wouldn't put a smile on anyone's face.

  10. Love your twine balls. Very pretty. They remind me of my newest crafting obsessions - Japanese Temari Thread Balls. You should look into learning temari. If you decide to do so, my mentor is Barbara Seuss who has written the best Temari book out ther (IMHO) and offers online classes.

    Thank for the lovelies!

  11. Absolutely adorable idea Monika! I love your photos and while the grapevine balls look lovely as is, I agree it sure is a cheery addition with the colors you used! Great re-purpose craft! I wish I had such an orderly and cozy nook in my house! Maybe once the kiddies are a bit older! :) Gorgeous!

    1. I used a glue dot to hold the twine down when I started and when I ended and haven't had a problem at all. If you don't have that, you could try some crafter's or Elmer's glue to see if that works...after it dries I tend to think it would hold it just fine! Have fun!
