I've decided to take a break from this:
to make some of this:
I've been seeing this twine everywhere, and I've been coveting it like mad. I want it all in every color! The only problem is, I'm not a millionaire. I'm being dramatic but this stuff is not that cheap, I've been seeing it for 2-4$ a yard which to me seems a little steep especially when you want more than one color.
So while on pinterest a friend of mind had pinned a DIY tutorial on how to make your own twine so I clicked the link then watched the video, then slammed my palm into my forehead and said, DUH. So if you are interested in making your own twine on the cheap then here ya go!
Then using your permanent marker, draw lines diagonally (or straight, either way works) on both sides of the ruler. Press hard with your marker but don't make it too thick. My gray was a little on the thick side but that's ok. Also be sure to drink your V8 fruit fusion while sitting on the painters canvas on the floor of your bedroom, it helps...
Well I should probably go take a shower, clean up my painting mess a little even though I'm STILL not done. Then go outside in the sun for the first time this week! Happy twining!
