If you love easy “put your feet up” kind of projects, this thrift shop project using twine is for you.
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.
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.
The event turned out great!
This sweet little guy named Gizmo was adopted at the event!
Here are a few more twine projects you might like.
P.S. Can you think of other items you could wrap in twine?
Are you planning some feet up time this weekend?
