Twine Not? Day 5 of 5 Days, 5 Ways

I can't believe this is the last day of this series!  Crazy how time flies when you are having fun blogging!

For our last entry this week, I created a wooden frame wrapped with twine and embellished with paper craft flowers.  And by created a wooden frame, I mean I bought it at Michael's for a dollar.  

I grabbed one of the oops paints I had bought about a week back at Home Depot for a dollar with the brush and got to work painting.

I simply put one coat of paint.  I wanted a bit of a distressed look and so I didn't worry having a perfect coat of paint.

I then wrapped it with twine around the top.  I had originally thought I'd wrap it around the middle on the top and bottom, but liked this layout much more. 

I used my paper cutter to cut two strips out of scrapbook paper (one smaller than the other)... 

...folded them and glued them together to make a two layer craft flower. 

From there I just need to assemble, so I glued the flowers on to the center of the frame, printed off a picture, and admired the finished product!

The project organically changed into something other than I had originally envisioned, but I really like what resulted.

 Make your own "S" or letter of your choice!

 Be sure to look at the past 4 days' projects!

I'm partying at:


  1. This is so cute! Love the "S" as well. Just the idea I needed for a wooden letter I purchased at the dollar store. I'm your newest follower. Looking forward to seeing all the creative idea's you've got up your sleeve. :o) Thanks for visiting my little corner of blogsville.


  2. I love how the twine and lollies dress up the frame and make it something special. Thanks for linking up with DIY under $5!
