Twine Not? Day 3 of 5 Days, 5 Ways

I love monograms.  I've been wanting to get an "S" for sometime to decorate our bookshelf with, but just haven't found the right one.  Then I was thinking I could paper mache one, but that was all before I thought of making a twine "S."

The moment I thought of the idea, I wanted to get to work.  So I grabbed a paper plate and freehanded an "S."  This was a bit more challenging than I had anticipated, but after about three tries I was satisfied with what I had.

 So I cut it out...

...and started to wrap the letter.

I kept wrapping and having to stop from time to time to cut off the extremely frayed sections of the twine.

Finally it was finished and after a quick trim to tame the beast...yes it was beastly. . . 

It was finished and looked great!

Love it.  Probably my favorite twine project!

Take a look at the rest of the twine series: day 1 and day 2!

  1. I love twine, but all I've ever used it for was b-day gift bows...tag attachment etc. These are some very creative ideas! Thanks so much for sharing this! I'm a follower!

  2. this is an awesome idea! Just might try it!

  3. This is a cute idea. I've used one of your photos in our latest post @ No Impact Bride. I've also included a How to link to this page :)
