On Friday night we held the annual fundraising event for our local animal shelter.  I helped decorate and love helping the animals in the best way I can.   I’m not good at asking for money, selling tickets or cooking, but I can decorate for the event and make event favors.

Our set up began Friday morning and Friday afternoon I came home bone tired and still needing a quick, easy ?something? else for the wine table.  Something I could do with my feet up on the ottoman kind of project.

Glancing around the now cluttered craft room from all the projects I noticed a partially used ball of twine.  The twine I bought from the humane society thrift shop.

Not only do I have a quick and easy put my feet up on the ottoman kind of project, but I’ll have a thrift shop project for today!  Thrift shop project Twine!

Our thrift shop has a craft and a tool area I never miss checking out.  I can usually find a cool rubber stamp for 10¢ or a great rusty tool for a couple of bucks.  Several weeks ago I grabbed a ball of twine.  It was a bit stiffer twine than I usually use for projects but it was only 25¢!

Now I have a project in mind.

tying on twine

I made a loop a bit smaller than the top of a wine bottle and tied a knot.  Then pushed the pulled the loop over the top of the wine bottle.

From there I sat back in my comfy chair with my feet on my ottoman and wrapped the bottle.


At the bottom of the bottle, I did have to get up outta my comfy chair and hot glue the twine for about the last 1/2 inch where the bottle is narrower.  This is my favorite hot glue gun.

This morning I also wrapped a couple of wine corks.

If you don’t have twine around the house or at your Humane Society thrift style;) I’ve bought this twine from Amazon.

  1. Covering the corks too is a great touch! I can’t wait to see the pics from the event – and that little guy is adorable! Congratulations on you newest little family member <3

    1. Hi Andi, just to be clear I’m not Gizmo’s new mom. We have enough on our hands with Homer and Bella. Homer is a wonderful almost 10 years old and Bella is about all the small dog he can handle in his golden years. I do know Gizmo’s new mom and they will make a sweet family. I’m stopping by the Humane Society today and hope to get pictures. Hugs ~Jeanette

  2. Oh I’m so glad Gizmo was adopted!

    Your twine wrapped bottles are a great idea. Believe it or not, I think I remember my mom doing that in about 1970 something. Things always come around again….well, good things. 🙂

    1. Stacey, While wrapping the wine bottle it did remind me of macrame from the 70’s. I remember getting a library book on macrame to learn the knots. Wonder when that will come back again? Those rope covered Pottery Barn jugs are very close. Thanks for reading! ~Jeanette
