As we prepare to move into our place on Saturday (eek!), I'm excited to start to decorate our new space. I love looking back at past projects and becoming inspired.
Throwback to May 18, 2011
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.
...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!
