Wired twine is terrific! It comes in 70-foot and 673-foot rolls. But what if you only need 3 feet? Here’s how to make 3 feet of wired twine.
Someday, we may need 678 feet string with wire inside. Until that day comes, I’ll make it.
Farmhouse decor uses a lot of burlaps, drop cloths, twines, and rusty stuff.
So, today I’m combining rusty baling wire with thick twine, but just making 3 feet.

By the way, this is easy! I took me 5 minutes, including stopping to get the pups a treat.
Most rope, twine, and wrapped cording have three smaller threads.
- 3 feet of twine 1/4 inch thick
- 3 feet of baling wire
- Couple pieces of painters tape
Open the threads bit and add the wire between and into the center.
Add a piece of tape to hold in place.
My simple tip when you’re wrapping the weaving yarns or whatever; Gather into a ball or small circle to make a loose bundle. Hold together with painter’s tape.
Keep untwisting the rope, inserting the wire, and letting the threads close back over the wire.
After a couple of minutes or halfway, stop and give the dogs a treat, put something out for dinner, or answer the door.
DIY always has interruptions!
Take another minute, and finish, before the phone rings.
I keep extra twine and cording handy in my rustic crate.
Twine makes great pumpkin stems too.

I can now use the wired twine for a simple wreath, drape from the mantel with book page leaves or twist into fall leaves to add shape.
