When you can’t sleep at night and your mind wonders, it can go into strange places.  The shark-infested waters of the movie we watched just before falling to sleep.  Did I remember to bring in the trash bin from the curb??  Isn’t it amazing how hard Mod Podge dries!!

The next morning, I didn’t drown or eaten by a shark.  The trash bin is still on the curb.  I need to do a Mod Podge project.

But what??
Wreath of Twine
Isn’t is amazing how ideas form!!

The weatherman promises spring will come.  Maybe a spring wreath will hurry it along.  I don’t have a wreath form.  No grapevine, no styrofoam and no desire to go shopping.  I didn’t sleep well.

I do have Mod Podge and twine.  In fact, I have several different types of twine.

Supplies for making a wreath of twine

Scissors
Mod Podge
Pieces of twine {I used several different types and colors}
Pieces of yarn {I added a couple pieces of yarn too}
Bowl for mixing
Wax paper
Masking tape
Burlap ribbon
Hot glue gun and glue sticks or glue pot {I just ordered this glue pot and LOVE it}
Small hand full of silk flowers
Round jello mold like the one pictured.  Round bundt pan would work too.

Steps for wreath of twine

Making-a-mesh-wreath-of-twine-2 | Country Design Style | countrydesignstyle.com

One ~ Wrap the round jello mold in the wax paper….oh, the bottom of the mold.  This easy by cutting thin strips of wax paper about 4-inches wide.  Then cover and tuck in edges and hold with the masking tape.

This step doesn’t have to be perfect.  Mine’s a tape and wax paper mess.

Two ~ Add pieces of twine into the bowl.  The size of this bowl would be perfect for cereal!  I filled the bowl with pieces leftover from other projects.  Use an empty kleenex box to drop in scrap cut-offs of twine and yarn.  Eventually, I find something to do with them.  *fingers crossed this project works*

Three ~ Gather up your super human strength and open that jar of Mod Podge! 🙂  Add about 1/3 cup and mix with your fingers.  Make sure you can turn on the water at the sink.  This gets sticky.

Four ~ Start arranging the mod podge coated twine over the wax paper.  There’s no rhyme or reason to my method.  I just overlapped here and laid a piece there.  I did make sure pieces went down to my work table in the center and outer edge.

Five ~ Next add more wax paper over your twine.  Again nothing perfect, just enough to hold the twine in place.  Now the hard part…

Let it sit for about 6 to 8 hours.

Six ~  Then remove the top wax paper…and let sit for another couple of hours.  Until it’s firm and the twine is all stuck together.

Seven ~  When the twine is firm, carefully remove all the wax paper

Eight ~  Now you have a mesh wreath using twine.  At this point, Mike walked into the kitchen and thought I made a cake!! 😀

Decorate wreath of twine

Nine ~  Adding decorative elements to the wreath of twine is easy with a glue gun or glue pot.  I’m loving the glue pot because you have both hands free.  Gather the flowers, dip, and stick.  Plus less waste.  Leave unused glue in the pot and reheat next time.  No glue dripping from the tip of the hot glue gun while you’re holding flowers in place.

I kept my flowers and ribbon simple and springy.

      I love it when a plan comes together…lol! This is just too awesome! I love different and my blog friend, you are definitely different! Sometimes I could stay on your pages for hours on end just finding new and exciting things to put in the back of my head for future use. Keep rolling!

      Janeen, what a great idea to add other elements of nature to the wreath. I’m doing a live video on Tuesday, March 14 at 1pm EST on Hometalk’s Facebook page. I hope you can take a moment to watch. If you’re on Facebook, just type in search, “Hometalk.” It’s the largest DIY page I know of! Yikes! Thank you for visiting and commenting. Hugs.

      Loved the wreath. Very inventive. I have straw that was wrapped around our new Chestnut saplings. I’m going to use it and twigs, acorns , tiny pinecone from our property as well as other goodies I find to make a wreath.
