Vase Craft

Happy Thursday!!  One more day...until the weekend, hang in there!

I got a teeny bit crafty and covered a vase with some twine that I bought in the $1 bin section at Target.

First I got all my supplies out, here is the twine (sorry my hand looks strange in this pic) :




I think I have a double jointed thumb...look at that weirdness!  It doesnt normally look like that...or maybe it does...reality check.

Second, I took the small vase from my powder room:


Next, I took my double sided tape:




I probably could have hot glued it, but I didn't want the twine to be permanent. I tend to get tired of decor somewhat quickly and I was worried that I would hate this vase in a week.  It makes me feel better knowing I can just take the twine right off, if I want to.

Next put a strip of double sided tape vertically down the side of the vase, then start wrapping the twine around around the vase:




Easy peasy!  Here it is whilst I wrap:




Finito!




Then I put the vase back into the Powder Room where it lives:




I think it adds a lil' sumthin'...hopefully I can keep it there for a while before I change it again.  It would be fun to wrap it with coordinating ribbon for the holidays, too!  Just to have that little Punch O' Color. 
Run to target and grab your $1 twine!

Cute project. I am so happy there are other people out there with double jointed thumbs. My hands look deformed when I take pictures of them for the blog. I never realized how bizaar they looked! Ha! Anyway, thanks for becoming a follower and I will do the same.

Gotta love that Target One Spot. They have all kinds of neat crap in there. We buys lots of stocking stuffers throughout the year for the kids.

Love it! I am the least crafty person I know, so you know that I love easy stuff like this! Thing is, it looks really fancy and all Pottery Barnish, so no one is the wiser.
Your hands look fine, you should see my double-jointed knees!

That is SO creative!! It looks fabulous....I would never have looked at a roll of twine and thought to use it like that. Very creative!!

I love the 3-column look...glad you were able to figure it out!!! Looks great!

Neat idea...I purchased three rolls of this at Target last week and hope to put it to use sometime next week. I'm signing up to follow and I hope you check out my blog and do the same! Have a GREAT weekend.

Blessings,
Linda
