My friend Kate made yarn pom poms for a wreath (and her cat Fable) and I thought I’d try the same technique but use bailing twine instead to make flowers. I love bailing twine – it’s inexpensive, a roll of it goes a long way, and I use it in a lot of my projects.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Bailing twine
- Florist wire
- Your fingers
Here’s how ya do it:
- Loosely wrap twine around four fingers starting with your forefinger to your pinky finger. Wrap the twine around your four fingers about 25 times.
- Remove the twine from your fingers and twist florist wire in the middle of the flower to bind the center of the flower.
- Cut the looped ends with a scissor.
- Now simply fluff up the flower to the perfect shape and cut the flower to the desired size.
I hot glued mine to the ends of twigs but there are countless creative uses for these beauties. Have fun, and happy crafting!
I love this idea! Simple, creative and so fall like. I will certainly be getting my craft on soon… perhaps while eating WPs. 🙂
LOVE LOVE LOVE! YAY!
Your balls turned out so much better than my yarn balls/puffs/straggly pathetic pink things.
These are like the more sophisticated yarn puff. perfect.
Love it! I’ve been searching for things to do with all my twine laying around. Thank you!
