Trendy Twine Tuesday: Hanukkah Wreath
It's Trendy Twine Tuesday!
For my project today I used the new Christmas twines: Holly Berry (red/green) and Candy Cane (read/white/green). (2 other colors are also available today: Holly green and Berry Red, that coordinate with the previous ones and are part of the Christmas collection).
Now about the "twiney" details on my project...
At the top of my wreath is a bow of Candy Cane twine.
To spruce up my flowers' centers, I added some twine in a random pattern. I like the little pop of color and texture that it adds... The white flowers have a Holly Berry center.
And the red flowers have a Candy Cane center.
I tied little bows on all my dreidels (little spinning tops used by children for a traditional game at Hanukkah), using coordinating twine colors.
I also added various buttons to add to the "homemade" feel. :-) My hot glue gun got quite a work-out today... ;-)
That's it for my project, but don't forget to check my fellow DT members'projects too: Alyssa and Kimberly.
And also head over to the Trendy Twine Blog for details on this month's challenge (a fun take on Tic-tac-Toes) to win some twine!... :-D
