I love my twine. You know I do, and I use it for everything.
Kennedy and I decided to try making a little bowl out of it the other day, just to see what would happen.
Well, this is what happened! It turned out amazingly well and it’s pretty sturdy too.
The making of it was messy, but good fun and great for kids as long as you have some supervision going on.
Basically, it goes like this:
1)Flip over a mixing bowl and cover it in plastic wrap.
2)Squirt some white glue into a bowl and start wrapping your twine around your plastic-covered bowl base, slapping more glue on with your fingers as you go.
3)Wait for it to dry for 24 hrs.
3)b)Stick it in the oven at about 200 for a little while, then turn the oven off and leave it sit until it’s dry. This way it will be pretty dry within about 2 hrs.
And then you have a bowl! Wouldn’t it make great presentation for a gift if you made a big giant one and then put the gift inside? I would love to get that.
Speaking of gifts…
Did you notice this cute little fish dish? My Gramma sent it to me for my birthday last week. I love it and it’s really special cause it belonged to her Gramma as well. Lucky me!
If you love twine too, then come back tomorrow for yet another twiney project of mine!
See ya then!
