Hi everyone- it's Sarah here today with a quick and easy Christmas project. I was so excited to get the Gold Shimmer twine in the mail! Gold seems to be my go-to color when creating this Christmas, so I knew I would be putting it to good use.
My mom loves to sew and I had been planning on doing something for her using an empty wooden spool. I first decided to make it be a gift tag, but then decided it could double as an ornament, too.
I wrapped the spool in Gold Shimmer and secured the ends with glue. I ran a piece of twine through the center hole, then threaded on 3 glittery buttons- 2 smaller ones on the bottom and a larger one next to the spool. At the top of the spool, I again added a large button next to the spool and sandwiched a little tag between that and another small button. I tied a few knots, then added the long ends in with a strand of twine I wrapped around the gift. When the gift is unwrapped, the spool can be hung as an ornament.
Thanks for stopping by The Twinery today and seeing what you can do with your Shimmer twine! We'd love to see how you use it- show us on flickr or facebook!
