I finally made a twine sphere to add to all those I've made from natural dried goodies. The twine was $2.53 at Lowe's and the styrofoam balls were six to a pack for $6 at Michael's, but I had a 40% coupon, yeah!
I started with my dear Father's weird tweezers that are super long and open when you pinch them and are tight when you let go. I pinched the tip of the twine and started coiling it up the length of my tweezers. I secured the other end with a clip for about 15 minutes. I did this so that when I started attaching it to the ball, the first coils would be tight and perfectly round. When I took it off the tweezers it kept the coil perfectly!
I started with a blob of low melt glue on the ball and just kept going and voila!
Fun and pretty and a fraction of the cost of buying one. Thanks for dropping by. There are lots more goodies to come, so be sure to come back!
