Twine Flowers

This months craft was inspired by our need for more spring and less rain! You can attached these twine flowers to sticks and combine into a vase for a chic flower arrangement or use them as rustic coasters.

You will need:

  • 1 roll of twine
  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • paints (optional)
  • paint brush (optional)

  1. Find end of twine and add a dab of hot glue to the tip.
  2. Carefully (its hot), fold 1/4 inch of twine in on itself so the glue holds it down.
  3. Use a thin line of glue on the inside of the fold and fold over again so that it starts to form a spiral circle.
  4. Repeat step 3 until the spiral is approximately 1.5 inches in diameter, then cut the spiral from the twine roll and glue the end piece to the spiral. Set aside.
  5. Find the end of the twine and dab glue 2.5 inches from the end. Then attach 1/4 inch from the end to the glue to make a loop. See Picture.
  6. Dab glue on the end of twine and wrap around bottom of loop to make bottom of petal.
  7. Dab glue on the other side of bottom of petal and make a slightly larger loop and attach to glue.
  8. Repeat steps 6 & 7 until you have 4 loops, each one slightly larger than the last. Cut the twine behind last glue.
  9. Create 4 more petals (5 in total).
  10. Lay out all 5 petals in circular formation. See Picture.
  11. Put a circle of glue near the edge of one side of the spiral piece.
  12. Carefully place spiral (glue side down) on top of the Petals and press down until they stick. Add glue to petals that don’t stick as necessary.
  13. Don’t forget to unplug the glue gun when you are done.
  14. Paint twine if preferred and Let dry.
